Contacting employers

Use this email template to contact employers about creating an internship opportunity

Use the below email as a template to help you confidently and professionally approach an organization about participating in an internship. Informational interviews are a great way to practice your interview, networking, and professional skills.


I found your name explain where you found their name and why you are interested in them/their organization.

I am a degree & program student at the University of Calgary. I would like to enhance my education by participating in a skills internship through the Faculty of Graduate Studies’ Transformative Talent Internship.

Would you be available for a 15 minute informational interview to discuss your organization’s needs and how I, through an internship, could help you meet your goals?

Thank you for your consideration. I will contact you in two weeks to explore the possibility of meeting.
