Dear Ms. Rogers:
As a first year undergraduate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I became aware very quickly of the prominence of UNC Hospital on campus. Daily I hear helicopters and the EMS rushing people to this cornerstone. When I discovered an internship related to my future career goals that would allow me to work at this campus hub, I was elated and excited to apply.
My name is Ellen Davis and I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Public Health with a focus in Biostatistics. After attaining my bachelors, I plan to complete a master’s degree in statistical analysis. The UNC Administrative Internship Program is a perfect fit for me because it provides exposure to the workings of a hospital through performance of administrative duties while at the same time allowing me to sharpen my analytical skills through analysis of different trends of hospital data.
While this internship would fulfill many of my hopes, I feel that I would also be an asset to the program. I have had experience with administrative internships and data analysis. During the summer of 2013 I completed a paid internship under Chief Justice Mark Martin of the Supreme Court of North Carolina. I worked 40 hours a week and performed many administrative duties like shelving books, scanning papers, printing copies, and running errands in order to keep the library running smoothly. Also, I gained much experience with data analysis and identifying trend data through AP Statistics.
Additionally, I have experience with independent work. I was a member of Key Club, a volunteer-based club, for three years in high school. During those years, I was elected to the Key Club board twice, serving as Projects Chair junior year and Secretary/Treasurer senior year. My time on the board improved my collaboration and decision-making skills. As projects chair, I was expected independently to contact different organizations and find volunteer opportunities for the club. This position polished my communication skills and led to my increased activity in my community.
The UNC Hospital Administrative internship fully aligns with my career goals and would be a valuable experience for me. Furthermore, I am excited at the possibility of this internship and the skills I could gain from it.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
