Dear HR manager,
I am interested in the Marketing Department Intern position, which was advertised on the company's site at the career opportunity section. I have worked as a marketing trainee at Auchan Ltd. for the last 12 months. I believe that experience gained at Auchan makes me a perfect candidate as a Marketing Department Intern at Metro Cash and Carry Company.
As I noticed, you are looking for recently graduated students, with high educational level progress, and internship experience. I think that my skills and experience fits this position due to several reasons.
Firstly, I have experience in processing substantial amounts of information and in multitasking that I gained during my education process. I think such skills are extremely important for an intern position.
Secondly, knowledge of Microsoft programs is very important for this position. I have experience of Excel, Word, and Outlook that I gained at University. For instance, I can create pivot tables in Excel.
Thirdly, I know Metro Cash and Carry is a company with an international environment. I have advanced knowledge of French, German and Spanish languages, which is a plus.
During my internship at Auchan Ltd., I got all necessary basic skills to be a good marketing specialist. I have learned how to do a marketing plan, provide marketing research, do market segmentation, targeting and positioning of the product.
As a person, I have strong communication skills and a business negotiating ability. I believe that I can find common ground practically with everyone. Additionally, I have good writing skills, from working as an essay writer as a part-time job at the university.
Last but not least, I can guarantee that I do a good work, and I am a very diligent person. Therefore, you can expect qualitative work and the meeting deadlines.

Proper ending for the cover letter

Don't forget to end your letter logically. Include polite phrases and your name.
Example:

I am looking forward to meeting you and using my skills and experience in your company. Thank you in advance for reviewing my resume. Hoping for a meeting to discuss position I am interested in.

Best regards,
Adrian Gram.
