Dear Madam/ Sir
RE: Online Application - Preferences & Documents
I took immediate interest in working for Bain & Company as the company has an outstanding reputation for its professionalism. As a corporate at heart I believe that delivery of professional services is equally as important as the quality of work itself. I am currently a final year student at the Wits Business School (WBS), pursuing the Postgraduate Degree in Business Management (PDM). I completed a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) in 2012, followed thereafter by legal training with a law consulting company. The skills and knowledge that I developed as a law professional have contributed greatly to the trajectory of my career path.
It was in my Strategy module at the WBS that I discovered my passion for finding innovative solutions to complex problems. I was intrigued by the fact that there was no wrong or right answer, but rather a best solution to every problem. It is herein that my desire to move into consulting was born.
Through my own independent research, I am of the belief that Bain & Company is concerned about the quality of its employees as the quality of the work produced therefrom will be of the highest standard. This concern is in line with my own personal convictions as I am continuously working on improving myself, academically, through working experience and personally. This improvement has enabled me to make greater contributions to the organisations I have worked for previously.
My strong interpersonal skills have enabled me to sharpen my skills in team work, both at work and during my studies at the WBS. I believe that my PDM, legal and business development experience, as well as my unique set of soft skills will be of great value to Bain & Company.
