Dear Mr. Salis
I am writing to apply for the internship that your company is offering for working in Spain, through the website www.stepstone.it.
I'm a student at the University of Palermo studying International Business Studies. As well as business, my course also requires the study of languages, of which I have chosen English and Spanish. However my main area lies within the field of marketing and I will finish my studies in the next few months.
I enjoy working in a team and supporting others with their work. I am also very focused when it comes to concentrating on urgent business, meaning that I can prioritise well. As you will see from my resume I have considerable work experience.
As I'm going to finish my studies shortly I would like to do another internship in Spain. Following my studies I plan to look for a permanent job and, because of this, I don't know if there will be another possibility to work in a foreign country.
I would like to gain more work experience and further develop my Spanish. The internship would help me to reach both of these objectives. I would like to work in Spain to learn more about the Spanish way of life and to improve my confidence with speaking the language, as it is difficult to speak Spanish if it is only based on what you learn at University.
I would be grateful of the opportunity to work with your company, should you offer me the marketing internship. I would be available to start from the 3rd of October 2010 for a period of 6 months, if possible. If the proposed date doesn't suit you, please let me know, and I will attempt to rearrange for another time.
I hope to hear from you soon and if you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
