I'm currently studying IT, it's my second year. I'd like to apply for a job related to business administration in a technology industry I'm greatly interested at. I've never had worked in this technology field before, nor do I have anything to prove I'm fit for business administration. I'd like to refer to my 4 years of high school where I've spent a great amount of time as a volunteer organizing and managing event, leading people and learning about entrepreneurship and business. But that was two years ago. I'm afraid they'll find it irrelevant. I currently work as a developer and I'm not sure how to make these things relevant in the cover letter.
What are the things that I should mention and in what order?
Any tips on how I can prove to them that I am a good fit would be welcomed. I think my technical background for this industry (it's automotive) is only an advantage.
