Computer Science Cover Letter Example
Deer Mr. _______
After attending a Women in Technology Luncheon hosted at Square last year, I was immediately drawn to the collaborative and innovative energy I saw in everyone I met. I have always wanted to be a part of a professional community as creative, forward-thinking, and hard-working as Square. I am confident my enthusiasm, drive, and relevant experience would make me a great fit for your Summer Intern program.
I have a passion for all things electronic, and I am pursuing this passion while working towards a degree in computer science at Cornell University as a junior. Over the past year, I have worked for PubNub, a startup company in San Francisco, first as an intern and now as an independent contractor. Through these experiences, I have learned a great deal about managing my workload, communicating effectively with co-workers, and knowing when to ask for help. I have also gained significant experience adapting to different technologies and programming languages for each project, including Java, Arduino, Swift and Python. It has made me an adaptable learner, and a big advocate for trying new and unfamiliar things.
My work as a member of the Cornell Autonomous Sailboat Team and Cornell University Application Development Training Program has taught me how to be a good team member by listening and contributing in equal parts. My participation in these activities also reflects my desire to explore the possibilities of technology, which I would love to continue to foster as an intern at Square.
My enthusiasm for interesting work is boundless, and I strive to always bring my positive energy to every work environment. As an intern at Square, I would add value to the organization by bringing my teamwork, communication, and presentation skills I developed through the Cornell Speech and Debate Team, as well as the technical abilities I have developed over the past 6 years. I would love the opportunity to further discuss my interest in the position.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
