Here is an example of a placement cover letter. This is the structure and general length you should be aiming for...
Dear Mr Attenborough,
I am writing in regards of the vacancy for the marketing placement with IBM, as advertised on RateMyPlacement. Please find my attached CV.
I am particularly interested to this placement at IBM because of the focus on different areas of digital marketing. IBM is at the forefront of the digital marketing industry, and I am fascinated by the cloud-based software IBM provides for companies on email, web and social media. I have been reading about IBM’s most recent project, which aimed to improve customer experience across the buyer journey. It links closely to project I completed in the first year of my Marketing degree, which centred around optimising user experience for online retail.
I am halfway through a Marketing degree, and on course to achieve a 2:1. So far, I have focussed on digital marketing modules, which have imparted strong analytical and problem solving skills. I am also now proficient in basic coding. My three years of part at Mecca Bingo have provided experience with customer service practices, and other useful soft skills.
Thank you for considering my application, I’m looking forward to the prospect of discussing the placement in greater detail in an interview.
