(ORDER No. #165989) Find an internship program in the field of your interest. Research about the program:

Find an internship program in the field of your interest. Research about
the program: overview, requirements, person(s) to contact regarding the application.
Then following the guidelines below, compose your networking email. Don’t forget to
format your email appropriately – with to/from/subject.
Guidelines for writing a Networking Email:
 (1)Your first few sentences need to compel the person to read on. To introduce
yourself, provide relevant information that connects you to the person and their
career field. Such information may include: your interests (career, personal, or
academic), a person you know in common, your Hamilton connection, etc. For
example, you might say that you became interested in their career field as a
result of a specific course or extra-curricular activity.

 “As a result of economics courses I’ve taken at Hamilton, I’ve become interested
in “microfinancing”. I’d like to explore how I could use that interest within a
nonprofit organization.” Don’t start off by saying “My name is…” because it’s not
necessary – they’ll see your signature at the end of the letter.
 (2) Explain your motivation for contacting them – what you want to accomplish by
speaking with them. Communicate to them what you already know about their
career field or organization and what kind of information you are seeking. While it
may feel more comfortable to ask generally for “any help you can provide,” don’t
be vague about what you need. This puts too much pressure on the reader to
figure out what you want.
 (3) Request either a face-to-face meeting or a scheduled phone conversation to
conduct your informational interview. Give specifics about your availability – days
or times of the week that you are generally available (during business hours). If
no dates are provided, the reader is more likely to put the email/letter aside.
 (4) Mention that you are attaching a copy of your resume so that the contact can
get a sense of your background. Once you have drafted an email/letter, review it
by putting yourself in the shoes of the reader; imagine how you would respond. If
you don’t feel compelled to reply, then you need to rewrite
