Jason Qiu  Irvine, CA 92617 626.818.6278. th April 18 , 2016 Alcon Laboratories   20511 Lake Forest Drive Lake Forest, CA 92630 Dear Selection Committee:  My name is Jason Qiu and I am writing to apply for the R&D Engineering internship position at  Alcon. I am currently a third year at the University of California, Riverside pursuing a degree in  bioengineering and am very excited about this opportunity to become apart of the surgical  instrumentation division at Alcon. I believe that my strong work ethic and interest in the medical  field will make me a valuable asset to your team. I’m very interested in joining your team to  contribute my understanding of science, coding, and problem solving skills as intern and gain  industry experience in an innovative and inspiring company such as Alcon. Above anything, I understand that health is the most important aspect of one’s life. With this in  mind I’ve decided to dedicate my undergraduate career as a bioengineer to learn as much as  possible about the various aspects of the medical field so that one day I can make a difference in  the lives of others. This year I did a series of research projects pertaining to a variety of  biomedical topics, which taught me valuable skills such as: the scientific approach, COMSOL  multiphysics, Solidworks, and problem solving. In particular, I’ve completed a project where I  created a 3D model of a mechanical heart valve where my team and I designed and researched the mechanics of heart valve implants. At the same time, I also worked as a Residential Technical  Assistant which taught me the importance of consistency, communication, and attention to detail.  As a co­founder of the industrial design club I also take pride in giving back to the community by working with members to recreate costly toys with SolidWorks for future 3D construction. In  addition, the laboratory curriculum that I’ve taken as a bioengineer has prepared me to apply my  laboratory knowledge in a professional setting. With various leadership experiences and a strong  work ethic, I strive to improve myself so I can help others around me. I’m very interested in  joining the surgical instrumentation division to apply my knowledge in the innovative  environment that Alcon has created and make a difference in the lives of others. The importance I place on academics has made me a very quick learner, I can easily fit into new routines and  situations, and my leadership experience has groomed me to be a punctual, friendly speaker. I believe that I am an ideal candidate as an intern at Alcon and if given the opportunity I can  promise you that I will be a valuable asset to your team. Please let me know if you have any  questions, I can be reached by phone at (626) 818­6278 or by email at Thank  you for your consideration. Sincerely, Jason Qiu
