    Cover Letter Phrase

    Hey! I have a phrase in my cover letter, where im not sure if its correct:

    "I am very interested in joining ... as an Intern in Q4 2021."

    Should it be "for Q4 2021" or "in Q4 2021"

    ?
    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my corrections above. As you can see, I wouldn't use "Q4" at all. Whether you use "in" or "for" depends on whether you want to start there as an intern on the first day of, or any date during, the fourth quarter ("in") or you want to start working there shortly before the fourth quarter starts and work there throughout that quarter ("for").
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Cover Letter Phrase

    You probably see that term Q4 used in things like economic reports of performance indicators. Why can't you be specific in giving the date e.g. 1 Oct 2021 or the month (Oct 2021)?
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.
