Sample cover letter for Internship position at BCG

POSITION:

Business Analyst

Dear Ms. Wells: I am a senior at Harvard University and am writing to apply for the Manager in Training opportunity at the Wallaby Yogurt Company posted on Harvard’s Crimson Careers database. I am very interested in the field of marketing and would welcome the opportunity to contribute my research and writing skills and experience to your growing business. I am excited about Wallaby’s commitment to organic, all-natural ingredients in its products. As a varsity field hockey player, I am very aware of the importance of healthy food as the foundation for a healthy life. Your emphasis on “learning by doing and leading by serving” is also consistent with the training I received as an athlete. Whether on the field learning new drills in the worst weather conditions or patiently working with a new team member, I am most fulfilled when contributing to the team effort. In addition to my concentration in History, I have completed coursework in Economics. My academic work has strengthened my research and writing skills as well as my understanding of the economics of business growth and development. Working with Harvard Undergraduate Women in Business (WIB) over the last two years gave me the experience and confidence to work in a dynamic, fast-paced organization where learning quickly and pitching in are instrumental to success. As a member of the Executive Committee, for example, I managed campus advertising campaigns that increased overall membership and attracted more than 500 students from 12 different schools to our annual Intercollegiate Fall Conference. Thank you for your consideration. I very much look forward to the opportunity to speak with you in person about my interest in this position. Sincerely, Ima Student
