Subject: Do you need an awesome intern?
My name is Tia Raina and I'm a master's student at Commits, a media college located in HSR Layout.I've been looking to intern for 4-6 weeks this summer at an awesome digital agency (preferably in Bangalore, but Mumbai is great, too!). I DO have about 5 years of work experience as a writer (Journalism, Advertising, Marketing, you name it!) and my latest crush is digital. I've also recently volunteered for Social Media Week and was part of the top 20 tweeters, while juggling being a hub owner (emcee+organiser) at one of the locations.
I was wondering if you'd have any openings for interns anytime between 23rd March and June 15th?I'm attaching my résumé, but just in case you need a quick link: here's my LinkedIn Profile.I'd love to intern at Webchutney, so do let me know as soon as you can! I'll be watching the phone (No. Really.).
Thanks for reading this email!

Tia also comes across as a smart young woman, a fun person, a self-motivated worker. In short, every company's dream employee.
Who would not want such a lively, intelligent personality on board?
