Internship

Yes, I can help you get an internship

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minute

Creative Agency Secrets helps students get their first jobs in marketing.  It’s incredibly hard to get a job as a junior marketer and so this is part of our social marketing – supporting the next generation.  And as a result, we’ve got a strong track record of delivering valuable learnings to interns and we also have hired many ourselves – the pick of the crop!

I got this email today and so am sharing my answer as a guide to help students get internships for themselves.

Hello.

I am Business Management Student from XXXXXX and looking for internship.

Can you help me to get internship.

Regards

 

Hello YYYYY

Yes, I can help you to get an internship.
I will speak very frankly so these comments are not harsh, but you will only be successful if you apply my advice.
  1. Learn how to write a formal business letter.  Use proper sentences, punctuation and grammar.  Capital letters for your name are important if you want to be taken seriously.
  2. Do some research first on the business you are approaching.  In your letter explain what you would hope to learn from the company and what you think you could contribute to them.  Remember an internship is not one-way.  So can you teach me about how to market to female students from India who are living in Auckland?  Your letter needs to be a sales pitch for YOU.  Read these articles on how to write a cold email
  3. Read these articles from our blog archive about Interns they will help you understand what Creative Agency Secrets teaches its interns.
I look forward to receiving your letter.

Will the student reply?

In parallel with the new business development tuition I give to clients, this email is designed to do two things.  Yes, it gives advice.  But its secondary function is to discourage applicants.
I want the recipient to understand that it will not be easy to get an internship with Creative Agency Secrets – we have high standards and so only the best succeed. Yet if they take our advice, they may be successful.
I do this with new business opportunity spotting – if you want to meet me, I set small hurdles up (like having you fix the meeting, not me) so that only the diligent and persistent will succeed.
