My name is Seth Watkins, I'm a junior at UCLA studying Civil Engineering.
I would like to be considered for an internship for the summer of 2022. I am eager to apply what I have learned so far at UCLA while gaining hands on experience in structural/civil engineering, construction management, and related fields.
While my actual engineering experience is limited, my relevant skills are not. I have three skills in particular that will make me a valuable contributor to your company on Day One.
There is more to tell, of course. When we meet, feel free to ask about the years I spent in South America speaking Spanish (and a bit of Portuguese and Guarani) with strangers I would approach on the street. Or how, as a teenager, I raised over $10000 in order to renovate a bald eagle’s habitat at the Santa Ana Zoo as a part of my Eagle Scout project. All of these tales will illustrate to you the industry and zeal I bring to any project.
Finally, I’ll make a personal commitment: I will work so hard and so well that when my internship with you is up, you’ll be sorry to see me go.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you for your consideration.
I worked over the past two summers for a resort in Sequoia National Park. I worked wherever they needed me, including doing maintenance on the cabins, groundskeeping, housekeeping, waiting tables, and helping prepare food in the restaurant. I was trusted to perform these tasks interchangeably, and to be flexible enough to move between them seamlessly.
