Hey Mr. Merrow

While still searching for a valuable internship for this summer I came across the Merrow Sewing Machine Company. Admittedly, I have never heard of them before, and if I had, I forgot (considering I’m not part of their target audience this is understandable). However, after reviewing their website and reading some of their blog posts, I have realized how reputable this brand actually is.

In order to be the best it is wise to learn from and work with the best. This is why I have decided to apply to such an influential brand in their respective industry.

Owen and Charlie Merrow – I have put together a list of the top 10 reasons why you should look no further on your intern search:

  • I will get the job done by any means necessary
  • I play well with dogs (Proof: My last internship had two dogs as well and there were no bites or bruises – I’d get along with Sable & Pilot just fine)
  • I am extremely interested in branding and am continuously learning about all aspects of marketing (Proof: This blog, daily check of Ads of the World.com, currently enrolled in Hubspot’s Inbound Marketing University)
  • Creative: the most commonly used word  others use in describing me
  • I took 5 years of French in high school (per free translation.com:  Je me souviens de quelque français)
  • I have a strong desire to be the best;  at everything
  • The amount of energy I exude is not the result of energy drinks
  • I have proven I can handle a large amount of responsibility (Proof: Spring 2010 semester included 5 group projects out of 6 courses and I achieved my first 4.0 semester)
  • I have a lot of experience and skill in time management (Proof: Last summer I experienced smooth sailing during two simultaneous internships, working at Panera Bread, two summer courses, and AMA responsibilities)
  • Have you Googled “Merrow” lately? Try it out…look around.

Just so anyone reading this understands, I sent my resume and cover letter to Mr. Owen Merrow tonight and directed them to my blog for further insight into who I am. I’m trying something different, and I hope they like it. Stay tuned and I’ll let you know how it turns out.

(Note – if you are not located in RI or MA, #10 on the list will not work for you, but it will for the Merrows) :)
