I, Hendra Agustin Sugiarto, currently in my third year at Petra Christian University, would like to apply for a 2-month internship in your company. I am currently pursuing my bachelors in engineering from a reputable university, Petra Christian University. I am writing to you to show my interest and motivation in participating a 2-month internship within your architecture firm. To be honest, the reason why I choose to study architecture is because someone once told me to follow my childhood dream to be an architect. When I was a child, in my hometown, I saw so many homeless people. They did not have any house or even a shelter to live. That motivates me to study architecture deeper and deeper. As time goes by I realized that architecture is not only designing a building, but it’s something more than just a building. As time goes by, and here I am in my third year as an architecture student. At first, I felt overjoyed to be an architecture student and thought that to be an architecture student is a cool thing.
In fact, to be an architecture student is very tiring and sometimes stressful. Lack of sleep is among those stressful things. But now I’m getting used to it and love it. I love stroking my pen and creates some sketches (even though it is not quite good) and let my imagination runs wild. But then, I wonder how to improve my personal architectural skills, not to be arrogant but I just want to give the best of me. I have joined many organizations, attended some of the seminars, did community and service, took software courses, but I still feel something that is still incomplete. Joining some architectural competitions and taking courses can be done during holidays like this, but I need something more “exclusive” that can be done unlike any of my holidays before. An idea crossed my mind to do an internship. As a third year student, internship seems to be a tempting option. To do an internship, hopefully, I can taste how to work in an architecture firm. I can also gain so many experiences and skills that I might not get in my university, gain more connections by meeting more people too. The most important thing is that I just want to keep learning, and hopefully I can be impactful to my society in the future. In the past few weeks, I started to look for vacancies in some firms. I tried to recall all the firms I know, and RAW is the first firm that snapped in my mind. I knew RAW from a seminar on my campus (SAN-2015). Mr. Realrich came to the seminar and gave a short lecture about users and building structures. Afterward, I also check its website and look some of their projects. It is very interesting so that I decided to try to apply for an internship in RAW for my next holiday. I am sure that it is perfect for
my next holiday!
