Engineering Internship Search Questions

  1. Nov 22, 2011 #1
    I am trying to find an Internship for the spring semester b/c I have a light course load. I have a few questions.

    1.) Is there a difference between emailing resumes and cover letters as opposed to sending paper copies. Is one better than the other.

    2.) Say I send a resume and cover letter to a company and after a week or two hear nothing from them. Should I make a follow up phone call. How should said phone call go.

    3.) I have looked at a bunch of examples and had the careear people at my school look at my cover letter. I just want your guys opinions. What are the main points employers are looking for in a cover letter.

    Please answer any / all of my questions. This is my first time doing any of this so I am trying to get a good idea of how to approach this. Thanks
