Sample cover letter for Internship position at Accenture


Business Consultant


Having spoken with one of your recruiters at Career Brunch in Leuven today, I respectfully submit my resume for consideration. Beyond providing me an opportunity to incorporate my educational background into my first career experience, I believe that the Young Graduate Program in Business Consulting would allow me to gain practical experience, while also enabling me to contribute my strong organisational skills, and ability to work well with people. Accenture’s vision to be the community of choice aligns with my personal interests to challenge myself with meaningful work experience and ongoing learning opportunities.

I believe that my proficient leadership skills and ability to multi-task in a fast- paced environment will fit well with the Young Graduate Program. With a Master of Science in Commerical Engineering from the Katholieke Universiteit of Leuven, my educational background has provided me with an understanding of economic and management principles and the ability to clearly articulate my thoughts and ideas. Additionally, I have gained practical skills in my function as a student representative for the Faculty of Economics and Business of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Through this experiential learning experience, I have learned to effectively developed leadership skills, strong communication, and teamwork. Among others, these experiences have taught me how to effectively manage my time while working under tight deadlines. 

I am very enthusiastic about the possibility of interning for Accenture and have enclosed my resume for review. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity for an interview.
