17Dear Marie, today is the end of your internship. I don’t know what you are feeling, but I know that I am feeling thankful for having had you as an intern in this ward.
In the last four months, you have proven yourself to be a quick learner and a natural doctor; this is very promising for your future.
I hope this experience was close to what you hoped for when you applied, if not more. We hope that our hospital has helped you to expand your knowledge of the medical field.


18Tom, every time that I look at you, I see someone who knows what he/she wants. That’s not something that I say to many people, if at all.
Throughout your internship at this hospital, I have been inspired and challenged in equal measure by your ambition, your knowledge, and your desire to learn.
Now that you have to leave for school, all I can say is thank you for everything. I wish you the best of luck!

23I know it’s not usual for programmers and testers to thank interns for their work, but at this tech startup, all of our employees are equal and valued equally.
In that spirit, I want to say thank you for your time and efforts during the last three months here.
For your energy, curiosity to know the programming languages in depth, and hard work on developing new tech modules, we want to thank you. We should have tried to keep you for a longer period!
I hope that you are able to get even better as you go along on and move towards your next tech project.


24Miss Bundy, the number one thing that I want every employee of this company to feel is inspired on a daily basis. I hope you have felt that inspiration during your time as an employee here.

25In the two years that I have been VP of operations for this tech company, I have met hundreds of networking engineers in our IT infra-division.
However, none of them has had the effect on me and my team that you have had.
It’s a testament to your work ethic, network and server-admin knowledge, and overall attitude that you made us all wish that you were more than an intern here. Thank you.



The best bosses and employees understand that even interns deserve some appreciation, regardless of their inexperience or the time they spend in the company.
Thank you notes to interns are both flexible and appropriate, and they are very easy to write.
If writing does not come naturally to you, you can use some of the ideas above to create kind thank you notes to interns.
