As you may remember, I worked in your company last summer. I enjoyed the experience and appreciated the opportunity you gave me to learn. Currently, I am a second year student double majoring in Management and Psychology at Fitchburg State University; I am writing to you in an effort to investigate summer employment opportunities that would give me practical management experience to reinforce my classroom experience.

Classes at Fitchburg are challenging, making my educational experience satisfying. Among the more challenging courses are my Business and Economic Statistics and Financial Accounting courses. I am also learning German because, in the first semester of my junior year, I intend on studying in Cologne, Germany.

In the past I have held general office positions which have allowed me to learn some basic organization, accounting, and communication skills. I would like to further develop these skills and am seeking an opportunity to continue my growth pattern in a corporate environment. I plan to continue my undergraduate studies at Fitchburg in the fall.

I would like to acquire information on possible internships or other employment opportunities in the Springfield area during the summer and, if convenient meet with you briefly to discuss any possibilities. I will not ask you for employment but rather for assistance or referrals that would help to enhance my education, and provide information regarding what concentrations in Management are most practical.

Enclosed is a copy of my resume to give you an idea of my background and personal presentation. I will contact you in a few days to discuss the possibilities of arranging a brief meeting with you. I look forward to seeing you again.
