I am submitting my interest in the Spring Semester veterinary internship opportunity you advertised with the Career Center at Company Name. I am familiar with your veterinary work and know the terrific reputation your clinic enjoys. As a current veterinary medicine student, I would be thrilled to learn from and work for such a distinguished veterinarian.
I am attending Company Name’s Veterinary School in the hopes of becoming a veterinarian. I have completed two years of post-graduate work toward my doctoral degree and have maintained a 3.5 overall GPA. I anticipate graduating in August 2015 and would greatly benefit from an internship at your clinic.
My love for animals began early as I grew up on a farm and helped my father birth cows and care for horses and sheep. As a school child, I participated in FFA and gained an understanding of animal husbandry. My love for animals led me to pursue an undergraduate degree in Animal Science.
I would love to meet with you personally to discuss the internship opportunity. I have enclosed reference letters from three professors along with my resume and transcripts. Please contact me to schedule a time when I can visit your clinic.
