Hello, all!

I am making my first post tonight! I have been browsing the permits.com forums for quite some time now and decided it would be a great place to voice a concern I have.

I am currently applying to internships that interest me on organic permaculture farms all over the United States. I have applied to several and sometimes do not even receive an email back.

I have no farming experience yet, and convey this well in my initial contact while always including a cover letter written specifically for that farm and my resume along with a few great references. I state the reasons why I want to learn about permaculture and organic farming and I feel m cover letter really conveys my genuine passion.

Why am I having such a hard time getting a positive response? Starting to feel down, and I am really capable and I am trying to make this a lesson of trust, but sometimes that can be hard!

Any input is greatly appreciated, and any stories of internship experiences would be great as too.
Thank you!
