Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Bain & Company


Associate Consultant


Dear XXX:

I am applying for the Associate Consultant position with Bain & Company. As a senior at XXXy majoring in Economics with a minor in managerial studies, I know that I would be an ideal candidate for this position. My studies in economics have provided me with the knowledge to apply my business and analytical skills to different business scenarios. I have an avid interest in the management consulting industry, and I believe that the Associate Consultant position with Bain & Company will provide me with unparalleled experience in business strategy.

My experience with XXXXX, XXXX Summer Business Institute, inspired my enthusiasm for consulting, as well as granted me experience in applying my knowledge by collaborating in teams. During the XXXX program, I led a team of four on the marketing initiatives for a global campaign for XXXX. The team presented our marketing plan to XXXXX representatives and was selected as the winners of the competition to have it implemented throughout the corporation.

As I continue to strive for academic success, I enjoy working on teams and have had significant experience through my extracurricular activities where I hold several leadership positions. Currently, I serve as the Vice President for XXXX, the XXXXX. I plan community events and fundraisers for the organization which include Save the Children, Juvenile Diabetes Bike-a-Thon, and tutoring local youth in math and reading. I’m also the Assistant Treasurer for XXXXX. I created a more efficient process for the organization to maintain financial records for a $50,000 yearly budget. I feel my strong work ethic and analytical, creative mind would equip me to contribute meaningfully to Bain & Associates as an Associate Consultant.

I would like the opportunity to meet in person to share more about my background and the skills I would bring to your company. If you need any additional information, please contact me at (XXXXX) or phone XXXX. I look forward to the opportunity to interview with Bain & Associates. Thank you for your consideration.
