Internships – Cold Emailing to get an Interview


By Matthew Krager

While searching for an internship, I often received no responses from my cold emails. It wasn’t until years and many iterations, that my cold emailing became effective. I have decided to share my emailing templates that helped land my internships at Stripe, Facebook, and Yelp.


Getting an interview can be the toughest part of the internship process. There is nothing more demoralizing than constant rejections and dead ends. I faced this in college and over my 4 years as an undergraduate, I developed effective emailing strategies for reaching out and getting an interview.
With these strategies, I was able to initiate the interview cycles that resulted in offers at Stripe, Facebook, Apple, Google, Yelp, Lyft, and more. Not to mention, I saved hours of time by reusing the same email templates from company to company.
What’s included:
– A hub for managing your reach-outs
– 5+ email templates tailored for specific situations
– Pages outlining successful emailing strategies
– Tips and tricks on how to get more eyes on your resume
– Resources to find recruiter emails to reach out to
