Sample Thank-You Letter For An Internship

By Mel

Writing is hard, especially when there so much (or so little) you want to say. But thank you notes are a really great way to leave a good impression, and a good investment for your future in case anyone you work with pops up later in your career.

Here are some tips for your thank you letter after you finish your student internship.

Make sure you include:

  • Your contact information
  • What you gained or learned in the experience
  • Appreciation for the opportunity and gratitude

You should tailor each note to each person you’re planning on sending notes to. To make it easy, here’s a template for you to follow.


Dear James,

Thank you so much for your guidance during my internship at company name

It was an incredible experience and one which really showed me that (industry/job/related thing) is a career path that I want to pursue.

Over the course of this internship, you were shove in some compliments and helped me accomplish shove in your accomplishments. Beyond work, I really enjoyed spending Friday night drinks with the team and shove in some stuff about social bonding.

I truly appreciate the confidence you had in me and I hope that I may reach out to you in the future for guidance or advice about the directions that I may take in (industry name).

*Warm Regards, *
