Dear Ms. Walker,
I am interested in applying for the lab research summer internship position posted at the University of Kentucky’s Career Services website, and have submitted a bit about my experience and skills for your convenience.
Aside from following an intensive coursework degree in Chemistry and Biology sciences, I have had extensive hands on laboratory experience in these sciences-in the field as well as the lab classroom. While in the lab classroom, I have learned how to create chemical reactions; while in the field studies, I have learned about various chemical compounds and organic materials-as related to Geology.
I write to you as my career intent is to work in a Chemical Laboratory, creating, discovering, and learning from this science and its place in our world. As to my candidacy for this internship, there isn’t a student more committed to the field, study, or your company; and I look forward to the possibility of showing you the benefits I can aid Independent Laboratories while learning a great deal of hands on experience myself.
Thank you for your consideration.
Sincerely,
Sammy Haggis
