Job Application Email String

A dear friend of mine just sent me this string of emails from a college student looking to land an internship spot at her firm. The names etc have been removed/changed to protect the innocent.

“I am a senior at The University of X, and I am interested in the internship position available through Firm X for spring 2008. As a X major, I have developed a comprehensive understanding of X, Y and Z. However, I realize that actually working in a public setting is critical in integrating the theory and practices learned in the classroom with the actual daily workings of a X firm. It is for this reason I am hopeful that you will consider me for an internship at Firm X this spring. Attached you will find my resume and learn of the experiences that have prepared me to work for a company such as Firm X. Please feel free to contact me to discuss the possibility of an internship in more detail with you. I look forward to speaking with you.

Sincerely,
Student X”

“I am sorry for the inconvenience, but my resume did not get attached appropriately in my previous email. I have successfully attached it to this one and hope that I have not caused any confusion. Once again, I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Sincerely,
Student X”

“I am so sorry for the confusion, but upon successfully attaching my resume to the previous email I realized that I inadvertently sent the wrong copy. I am truly sorry for this inconvenience, but I assure you I have attached the correct resume to this document. I understand that this is unprofessional, and I can assure you that I would not let this happen if you were to consider me for this position. Please accept my apologies, and I hope that you would still be willing to speak with me soon.

Sincerely,
Student X”
