Recruiters at Intel look for specificity, alignment and conciseness in a cover letter. In the first paragraph, specify the position for which you are applying. Then, write a compelling narrative that paints you as the ideal candidate, aligning your skills and experience to the needs noted in the Intel job advertisement. Keep the letter to a single page in length.
Your cover letter must engage the reader and drive interest. As previously noted, you need to exercise brevity when writing the letter. All cover letters should consist of 3-4 paragraphs, tops. Demonstrate to the Intel recruiter that you know something about Intel’s business, goals, and of course, the needs and requirements of the job you want at Intel. In your letter, do as much as possible to differentiate yourself from the competition by providing information that highlights key successes that the recruiter will find compelling, and that will help him/her understand how you can help Intel succeed.

The first step is to research open positions. The company has positions all over the world and a range of opportunities for interns and management professionals. Look through the many options at the company's career site. As you read through the position(s) that seem right for you, jot down keywords and phrases. Pair those with specific examples from your experience to make an impact in both your resume and your cover letter.
The second step is to perfect the cover letter. Use a cover letter writing reference to get started. It's important that you don't repeat the information from your resume. Instead, create an introduction that motivates hiring personnel to dig a little deeper into your qualities.
You may also want to take some time to describe why you want to work at Intel. Express what you like about the company and how you are a good fit. Finally, close with a "thank you" and a call-to-action.
