    Dear Sir/Madame

    I am writing to apply for a Graphic Design Internship position offered by the TAFE college for international students.
    My ability to contribute to your projects and desire to learn from this experience make me an enthusiastic applicant.
    As a student at Polytechnic of Milan, I am studying Industrial and product design.
    During the years of my education I understood that my main passion is in graphic design, particularly illustration.
    My course background includes work in two-dimensional design, three-dimensional design, drawing and printing.
    An internship experience could add the practical skills that I need to the theoretical ones that I have gained in the University.

    As you will note by the enclosed resume, I don’t have any experience in the field of graphic design, however I have been doing extra-academic courses in which I had the opportunity to meet professional designers and clients.
    Through this interaction, I have realized the value of communication in translating a client’s ideas into a visual product. I would welcome the chance to improve and make practical the skills and knowledge I have gained to a position in your company.

    I am a social person and I enjoy work by myself as well as in a good team.
    In my studies I have learnt how to manage and organize a small team to create a proficient work.

    I would like to work in an organisation specialized in two-dimensional, packaging, illustration, pre-press (and so on) design.
    I wish to achieve in this internship the work skills and the experience that I might need in my future carrier and studies.
    I look forward to speaking with you to discuss my qualifications and the possibility of an interview.
    Please feel free to contact me at the mobile number ----------- or [email protected] if you have additional questions.

    Yours faithfully
