Dear Mrs. Fano,

Hope this email finds you well,

I work for About Travel Inc. an online travel site, and we’re interested in hiring students as part of an internship program to write on our site forums regarding places they’ve visited, restaurants to look for, activities to do etc.

We currently have over 70,000 city specific websites (i.e. www.about-miamihotels.com , www.about-miami-hotels.com, www.About-Miami-Beach-Hotels.com, http://miami.about-hotels.net )each with their own forums and we thought that it would be great chance for students to give their input on different destinations they’ve visited, and should there be a place that they haven’t been to well, with good research they can write about it in their own words.
I’ve already been in contact with Miami Dade Community College’s Career Services website, which we’re just waiting for final approval, but in the meantime we thought that the best way to get to get the word out there about this opportunity is by contacting your offices.

Are offices are located in the Design District, it’s a relaxed, fun and friendly environment where students can come to work from our offices or if they choose they can also telecommute.
If this opportunity is something your students might be looking for, please let me know when your available to further discuss a possible partnership between Miami-Dade Community College Students and About Travel.

Thanks and regards,

Jacinda Cordovez
