Computer Science / IT Internship cover letter examples

Whether you’re an early school leaver, a graduate or a tertiary graduate, this cover letter demonstrates the kind of things you need to address when you’re applying for an advertised job, but you don’t have any formal (paid) work experience.

A good cover letter should include:

  • Your name, email address and phone number at the top of the page on the right
  • The name of the business and the contact person’s full name on the left
  • A reference line (e.g., “Re: Application for Administration Assistant position”)
  • An address to the reader directly (e.g., “Dear Mr. Moyle” – don’t use “To whom it may concern”)
  • An opening statement that briefly introduces you to the reader
  • A main body that highlights qualities and characteristics you have that are relevant to the job
  • A closing paragraph asking to arrange an interview


EMAIL SUBJECT: Computer Science / IT Internship

Dear Mr. Broadus:

This message is in  regards to my interest in applying for Computer Science / IT Internship advertised on www.khabza.com. Since my  degree requires hands-on experience in real time IT / Computer Science I chose XYZ Company because of its excellent reputation in computer world.

I am among the top three students of my class, as far as academics are concerned, and have a full grasp on the programming, applications, databases and networks. During my education, I have had ample opportunities to put my education into practice by doing computer science projects for class.
I am enclosing a copy of my resume outlining my academic achievement. I am available to relocate in any time to join your team for a internship.

I welcome the opportunity to talk about this exciting opportunity. I will call your office next week to further
discuss an internship.

Please contact me if you require additional information.
I look forward to speaking with you soon

Kind Regards
Khabza Mkhize
