Dear Executive Manager Lieutenant Tom Oark,
I'm writing to you at the suggestion of my father regarding my interest in your open internship opportunity at Crisps Factory Inc. for the summer of 2012.
Last year I graduated from the Slate High School with a 3.7 GPA. During my high school career, I was a dormitory prefect my senior year, a writer for the school newspaper, the captain for the football, soccer, and baseball varsity squads my last two years, and received numerous achievement and ethics awards in sports upon graduation.
After being accepted to Goliathson College in Carolina, I elected to defer for the year to broaden my horizons. In the past several months I've had the opportunity to travel and learn. First I traveled along the Mekong River in Southeast Asia for three months, from the mountainous Tibetan plateau to the Gulf of Thailand. Our group of eleven included three instructors and eight students, and invested considerable time and effort in understanding the religious, philosophical, social, economic, and political ties that stretched between people, towns, regions, and countries. In my second semester I traveled with another group, this time with Pacific Challenge based out of Minone University in Wisconsin, that ran the length of New Zealand and the Gold Coast of Australia, from Sydney up to Brisbane. The course stressed leadership and problem-solving through outdoor tasks such as rafting, backpacking, and skydiving.
Since I arrived home in early March, I've assumed responsibilities as an assistant coach for the freshman baseball team at Redwood High School; as a soccer coach for academy sessions with Novato Soccer Club; as a member of the Berkeley Berserkers Rugby Club; and as an author of fiction in my own time. I will matriculate to Goliathson College this coming fall.
To say the least, my recent endeavors have been exceedingly enriching. I'm now eager to commit myself to a full-time job and garner experience in the career opportunity of my dreams: consumer product marketing and distribution. No hero of mine ever indulged in that path of inquiry, and yet my inspiration as a child was two-fold - uniquely, pretzels and capitalism.
Thanks very much for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon.
