Sample cover letter for Internship position at Amex


Finance Intern

Dear American Express Recruitment Team,

I am very excited about applying for the Finance Summer Internship Program with American Express that was advertised on the website. I was recommended that I apply for the internship since the qualifications directly match my educational experience, interest, and skills. By the summer I will be able to offer two years of academic excellence in Corporate Finance, Financial Market Institution and Accounting modules, and for my first year average result I had gotten a high 2:1, now I'm working very hard towards a First for my second year result.

 In addition, I have work experiences in other sectors - For example, I was a full-time waiting staff over the summer after first year of university. As mentioned earlier on, this role has improved my ability to work well under (time) pressure and in a hectic environment.

 This is why I am especially excited about the summer program that American Express offers students and I feel that this opportunity would provide me with additional knowledge and skills that will add to my abilities to positively serve clients in the field.

Thank you for your time and interest and I look forward to hearing from you.
