Choose one organization among any of the posts (your own or any of your classmates) from the Discussion 1, “Understanding Your Role as a Writer.” Compose a cover letter (not a resume) asking for consideration for an internship with the organization. Watch How To Create An Effective Cover Letter | Ashford University Career Services, a video webinar that discusses crafting a solid cover letter.
Your cover letter must include: A brief summary of your background and experience. An explanation of your interest in the organization. An assessment of what you hope to learn or accomplish. A brief overview of what you will do with the experience.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Each response should be at least 125 words long. Consider how your response and that of your classmates match the profile of the company.
