    Hi all,

    I'm writting a cover letter and I'd need some of your help...
    Particularly, I would like to know whether the use of the word "hereby" makes sense and is correctly placed within the following sentence:

    "This experience and the skills I gained from it may prove valuable to the internship I am hereby applying to".

    Thanks for any help!

    I would not use "hereby" in anything other than a legal document. It is not normally used in regular conversation or correspondence. The sentence is fine without it.

    I am assuming that there is some background before the use of this sentence

    Yo diría "This experience and the skills i have gained from it will prove valuable to the internship that I am hereby applying to."

    I think that "hereby" works in the sentence.
