Sample cover letter for Internship position at Associates


Summer Intern

I am a third-year student majoring in Industrial Engineering with a concentration in Economics and Finance. Although Associates has not had on-campus recruiting events at our school, I was exposed to the firm through a friend who worked there this summer and was particularly enthusiastic about the immediate responsibility he was given even at the intern position. After speaking with another current consultant, I was very interested in working at the firm because of its fast-paced culture and smaller teams allowing for a higher level of responsibility and engagement. I believe I would be an excellent fit to your team and would love an opportunity to work at a firm with a strong presence in the healthcare industry which is rapidly evolving.

I have previously worked as a Strategic Resources Intern at, assisting in efforts to launch a new product into two different market segments. Additionally, I am currently a Project Manager at  the largest student-run for-profit consulting organization in the country. In four semesters with the organization, I have had the responsibility of giving presentations, collaborating with team members, and conducting meaningful research and analysis. At Associates, I am sure that I will be able to extrapolate the work ethic I’ve built and succeed in creating an impact through problem-solving, strong communication, and effective teamwork.

I strongly believe the Business Operations Associate Internship would be an excellent fit for me based on my strong work ethic and passion for consulting, especially in the healthcare industry. I look forward to talking more about the opportunity to join your team and would like to thank you for your time and consideration.
