    Dear Jim collison

    It has come to my attention of late that I , Silas Perry, should start looking for a future job. You, jim collison, Visited my school , (Central High) on the morning of October 21 to give a little speech about how freshmen, sophomores, and juniors have the opportunity to work for gallup in the summer of 2018. I myself and a freshmen, and am very interested in this internship offer. I love to work and get things done. I pick skills up quickly, and consider myself very responsible (and humble :). I would love the opportunity to apply my skills to gallup in the summer after this one. I have some experience in codeing, although not Java. However, by the summer of 2018, if my plans are not altered, i will be a well experienced student in the realm of java codeing. All i ask is to be considered to be selected as on of the lucky students whom will have the chance to work with/for you.

    I thank you unendingly for considering my request to by selected for the internship.


    Silas Perry
