Sample cover letter for Internship position at BCG



onathan J. Morse 

The Boston Consulting Group
Boston, MA

Dear Mr. Morse,

I am writing to express my interest in a full-time associate position with the Boston Consulting Group. I am in the final year of an MPH program at the Yale School of Public Health and will graduate this May with a Masters of Public Health, concentrating in Health Management. Review of my resume will show that I have a history of success handling challenging work in environments that foster intellectual stimulation and encourage both personal and professional growth. I believe that BCG is an excellent fit with my career aspirations because of its combination of global reach, expertise in diverse industries, and extensive talent pool.

Highlights of my background and associated competencies include:

  • Exemplary teamwork and innovative skills augmented with knowledge of healthcare management provided a successful and unique approach to the development of employee benefits in the form of an onsite health clinic at Humana, Inc.
    • Strong leadership ability coupled with a positive attitude to build relationships and accomplish numerous short-, medium- and long-term objectives resulted in the production of a highly successful 2008 Healthcare Conference held by the Yale School of Management.
    • Breadth of knowledge through academic studies including philosophy, economics, statistics, and healthcare management provide a solid foundation to work on projects requiring both qualitative and quantitative analytical skills.
  • I am most interested in an associate position with the Washington, DC office, however, I am willing to consider placement in other offices. Please find attached my resume and a copy of my transcript for more details about my qualifications. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to discuss my application for the full-time associate position further and I look forward to hearing back from you. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
