Dear Human Resources Manager,
I am interested in pursuing the Hotel Management internship with Hotel by the Sea. In particular I
hope to learn about the boutique hotel experience that Hotel by the Sea provides. As an intern, I
hope to learn U.S. hospitality practices and gain experience in event management. I believe that my
education, work experience, and career goals are a good fit for this position.
During my time at the University of Huddersfield, where I earned a BA in Hospitality Management, I
spent a semester abroad in Rome studying international business and Italian. This international
experience has served me well in my current position as a Banquet Manager at the Leopold Hotel
where I interact regularly with international clients.
As a Wedding and Special Events Coordinator at Ten Tables Bistro, I worked under pressure while
coordinating events with as many as 350 guests. In this role, I demonstrated my ability to prioritize,
delegate tasks, and meet deadlines. Prior to that, I delivered consistently excellent customer service
as a Front Desk Intern at the Hilton Sheffield Hotel.
CIEE, a visa sponsor designated by the U.S. Department of State, will facilitate the visa process. I
will be on a J-1 Exchange Visitor Program which allows me to legally train in the U.S. for up to 12
months. CIEE will support us throughout the internship. More information on CIEE’s J-1
Intern/Trainee programs can be found on their website.
I believe these skills and an eagerness to learn about American hospitality culture will help me
succeed in the Hotel Management internship. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you
about this position and can be reached at 011-22- 2222.
