An internship can provide a student with invaluable work experience that will undoubtedly facilitate the transition into the working world upon completion of their studies. This, both via hands-on and practical skills that the placement will bring but also by developing a network in the field and proving a demonstrable desire to make it in the world of web design.

When applying for an internship, as when applying for a permanent post, you will be required to write a cover letter, and there are certain skills and qualities that a recruiter will be looking for if they are to consider your internship application.

Firstly, they will be looking for someone who is passionate about the internet and web design. An applicant who stays up-to-date with the fast-paced and every-changing developments in this field will not fail to make a positive impression on the reader of the letter.

Furthermore, skills such as the ability to work efficiently and positively in a team environment, whilst being able to display a good level of autonomy, the ability to prioritise and problem solve, will also strongly enhance an applicant’s profile.

Throughout my studies I have completed various internships and also done some voluntary work for an up-and-coming company. During these experiences I have enhanced my skill set and knowledge base, in areas such as, problem-solving, working in a fast-paced environment with tight deadlines. I have outstanding knowledge of the IT world and am highly proficient using all software that is necessary to carry out the day-to-day duties for this position.

My strong passion for this field means that I am always keeping up-to-date with the new methods that become available; self-improvement is of maximum importance to me so that I can do the job to the best of my ability at all times.

I can also bring to you; excellent communication skills and a person who is comfortable working as part of a team or independently.

I thoroughly enjoy web development and the experience of successfully designing a website layout, the usability and the appearance. You can see in my portfolio the times I have demonstrated where I have worked on websites that incorporated dynamic images, flash integration, ecommerce capabilities and scripting languages.
