Dear Ms. Rebecca:

While attending career fairs in UMN, I applied one opening summer intern position for the next school year in Minneapolis. I have enclosed a résumé for your review and wish to be considered for an intern position. I would like to work for Mclagan because of your strong commitment to meeting the individual needs of clients and providing creative finance solutions.

I am currently a first year graduate student in MFM program (Master of Financial Mathematics) in University of Minnesota – Twin Cities. Before I came here, I had three related internship experience in finance and security companies. In Sinolink Securities Co., Ltd, I applied my analytical and mathematical skills to find opportunities to make profit in index futures and stocks with my teammates. Also I helped my manager to manage clients’ wealth and give them some advice when I was in Guodu Futures Co., Ltd. When I was working in Agricultural Bank of China, I wrote VBA code in Excel to sort a huge amount of data and wrote report to mentor weekly. From these experiences, I gained valuable analytical skills as well as customer service experience in finance field. Whether I was assisting someone to come up with effective ideas or completing task by myself, I made sure to offer advice and think. I believe these experiences have prepared me to be a contributing member of McLagan | An Aon Hewitt Company.

I would appreciate the opportunity to interview with Mclagan to further discuss my interst and qualifications for the summer intern position. My quick learning ability and technical skills would make me a great fit for your organization. I am available at your convenience and look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for yours time and consideration.
