Essay for Internship for Barack Obama

Dear Mr. Obama,

Mr. Obama, my name is Scott. There are a number of reasons why I am the best candidate for your internship this summer. I know I can work for anyone and I am very submissive. I started my own business at the age of 8. I think I can handle being a “go-fer” for awhile. I wouldn’t mind being a “go-fer” a bit, as long as I’m being your intern.

Your campaign has been long and rigorous so far, and you need an intern that can do the little things. There are a number of reasons why I would be your best choice. I have a lot of work experience already. I started my own mowing business when I was 8. I managed the finances and taking the calls, while my brother and I both did the work. I am willing to work anywhere in the country; this is a transient job that takes a lot of traveling and I’m ready for those long days of work and travel. This business helped me a lot. I’m the best choice because I don’t have to be told twice to do something. I’m a fast learner and I can do things without being told.

Your views on the issues are very similar to my own. This is the number one reason I want to work for you. I appreciate your promise that, if elected, you will end the Iraq war as quickly as plausible. I support the troops very much as do you, but the value of their lives’ are worth more than a perplexed oil war, so they need be returned home. I know someone who is for the war will not be coaxed into bringing the troops home. I also believe that fighting global pollution is a great cause. This is not a transient problem and we cannot reverse what we have already done, but we need to save the environment before we have nothing left to live off of. Your energy and environment policies you plan to introduce if you are elected, I believe will be very effective. I am roused by the opportunity of working with the next President of the United States. Also, the genocide in Darfur needs to be changed from the enmity portrayed there and the rancid killings. The chance to work for you and gain experience under you is an opportunity of a lifetime. I believe you will follow through with your actions and not just send the nation an insinuation.

I believe that you and I have similar backgrounds and characteristics that match up well with one another. Both of us grew up in the Midwest, but you have knowledge of larger city growing up in Chicago, I grew up in a small town so I can bring that experience to the table. We both have a Midwest work ethic. Doing things before it’s asked and working on the job until it’s completely finished. I know I’m the right guy for you. I have been interested in politics my whole life. I don’t see any other occupation other than one in politics in my future. Getting picked for your internship would be an opportunity of a lifetime. The moment I read about this rousing offer I starting preparing this paper; because I know I could appreciate this more than any other candidate, while working diligent and submissive. I know I will be a loyal and hard working intern.

Mr. Obama, thank you very much for your precious time. I hope you will see that I am the best candidate for this internship. I have the knowledge it takes to work for you, but I need your experience to further my logical thinking and thoughts for this occupation. I hope you will consider my application and I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank You Very Much,

Used I too much. The essay overall wouldn't compete well against other essays especially since the internship is bound to attract many strong writers (its the presidents internship right?). Its an okay essay, not memorable.
