Sample cover letter for Internship position at BCG
I am a first year student studying towards a Bsc in Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science writing to apply for the BCG Insight Programme. Researching BCG, I was impressed by the culture at the firm and the way in which it approaches problems. Rather than try to fit problems into existing frameworks, teams at BCG have a tendency to look at each problem from a fresh and build a solution from the ground up. I am keen to gain a deeper insight into a career as a management consultant due to its intellectual rigor and have decided to apply to BCG because of its global presence, reputation for excellence and its commitment to thought leadership.
I believe that both my educational and professional backgrounds have well prepared me for the analytical challenges that are faced in this industry .Last summer, I gained a three week internship at Credit Suisse working within Fixed Income Strategy. While enrolled on the internship programme, I developed a deeper understanding of fixed income financial instruments by carrying out detailed analysis on the fundamental drivers of their prices using Microsoft Excel. Furthermore, I worked within a team to create and then give a presentation to senior managers developing interpersonal and teamwork skills which are of the utmost importance to BCG as all work is carried out it teams.
A career in management consultancy is characterised by the tackling of a wide variety of business problems using analytical and reasoning skills to provide solutions for clients. One of the things which attracted me to this profession is the variety enjoyed by working across numerous industries with numerous clients and the opportunity to make a real impact in shaping these industries.
Finally, I have enjoyed looking over the numerous practice cases found on the BCG website specifically the logical approach taken when addressing the numerous frameworks. I would welcome the opportunity to learn more about management consulting and the opportunities that BCG could afford me in the future. Thank you for your time and consideration.
