To Whom It May Concern: My is Basmah Alawadhi and I am please to be applying for an internship with your company, Go Media, Inc. In reviewing your company’s website in light of my professional experience and professional goals, I recognize that I would make an excellent fit for your business and creative environment. One of the primary elements that endeared me to your company was your combination of strong artistic and design principles, with a modern day approach to advertising and marketing. My own educational background has assumed a similar trajectory.
While I was initially drawn to graphic design, and indeed have developed my skills in this discipline from an early age, upon entering college I also pursued a major in advertising; these pursuits ultimately resulted in my receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications, with a minor in graphic design. I recognize that these are skills that could be put to great use at your organization. Through my studies I have gained a great understanding of marketing principles, and have developed the ability to tailor my designs to a client and company needs.
Ultimately, I believe these skills would make a great contribution to your company’s overriding business goals. I have included a copy of my resume and look forward to speaking with you in person.
