Dear Ms. Larson,

I wish to apply for the Data Scientist Co-Op position advertised on your website. Based on the
position description posted on your website, I believe my skillset would make me an excellent
candidate for this Co-Op.

I am in my third year at North Carolina State University and live almost directly between your
business and the University, making for a quick commute and virtually instantaneous
availability. I am studying systems engineering and have completed every semester with a
minimum GPA of 3.8. I have previously worked as a sales associate and I am excited to use my
education and skills to optimize results for clients, as well as being able to streamline business-
client communication. I am confident that my experience, work-ethic, ability to analyze data, as
well as my education would make me the quintessential student for this Co-Op.

I would be ecstatic to meet with you to discuss the potential advantages and benefits I would
bring to your company. Thank you for your consideration; I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
Lane Shaffer
