  • Prepara5on   •  Tell  Your  Story   •  Research   •  Reflec5ng  on  Experience   •  Presenta5on    
  • Tell  Your  Story   Example   From  the  beginning  I  have  loved  numbers  and  I   understand  that  people  may  think  that  is  cliché  for  an   Economics  major,  but  that  is  why  I  am  an  Economics   major.  And  it’s  not  just  numbers,  it  is  the  stories  that   these  numbers  tell  and  how  they  can  impact  the  way  an   organiza5on  makes  decisions.    They  tell  stories  about  our   personal  lives  too  and  impact  the  way  we  make  personal   decisions  every  day.   When  I  first  came  to  Duke,  I  wasn’t  sure  how  I  wanted  to   incorporate  this  interest  into  what  I  would  like  to  pursue   long  term,  but  a  class  project  in  my  second  Economics   class  let  me  know  I  was  on  the  right  track.      I  furthered  this   interest  by  comple5ng  internships  with  the  Department  of   Commerce  and  also  with  Bloomberg.    I  wanted  to  have   internships  that  I  could  compare  and  contrast  so  I  would   know  whether  I  wanted  to  pursue  a  government  job  or   the  private  sector.    With  the  DOC,  I  assisted  a  professional   staff  member  within  the  Bureau  of  Economic  analysis  in   gathering  primary  and  secondary  research  which  was  then   used  in  a  preliminary  interpre5ve  report  for  making   decisions  regarding  monetary  policy.    With  Bloomberg  I   sourced  and  qualified  data  which  I  then  used  in  upda5ng   the  Bloomberg  Database.  Like  the  DOC,  this  data  was  used   to  make  decisions.       I  have  really  enjoyed  these  opportuni5es  to  gather  data,   and  am  now  wan5ng  to  use  these  skills  to  not  only  gather   data,  but  directly  impact  decision-­‐making.    I  hope  it  is  with   your  company  that  I  will  be  able  to  do  this.   Example     I  am  a  senior  here  at  Duke  majoring  in  Economics   and  also  pursuing  the  Markets  &  Management   Cer5ficate.    I’ve  held  two  internships  during  my   5me  at  Duke,  one  with  Bloomberg  and  another   with  the  US  Department  of  Commerce.    I  think   these  have  provided  me  with  a  great  set  of  skills   to  implement  at  your  company.

  • Follow-­‐up   Dear  Mr.  Duke,   Thank  you  for  the  opportunity  to  interview  today  for  the   Research  Intern  posi5on.    I  appreciated  the  5me  you  provided   to  discuss  my  skills  developed  through  experiences  in  both  lab   and  office  sedngs  and  how  each  could  contribute  to  your   overall  goal  this  summer  of  becoming  more  sustainable.         I  hope  to  specifically  bring  what  I  learned  regarding   sustainable  prac5ces  from  the  Nicholas  Ins5tute  to  your   organiza5on  resul5ng  in  a  more  efficient  business  with  less  of   an  impact  on  the  Earth.     Best  Regards,   Sample  Student
