Sample cover letter for Internship position at Bain


Associate Consulting Internship

I am writing to express my interest in Bain & Company’s Associate Consulting Internship. My extensive conversations with James Dean, a consultant at Bain San Francisco, and Raymond Chandler, a FP&A analyst at Bain Atlanta, have affirmed everything that I love about Bain: passionate employees, youthful culture and generalist opportunities. Possessing very diverse skill sets and background, I am excited by the opportunities to play important roles in strategic decisions across different industries. I believe that my shared passion with Bain in solving challenges that matter, strong analytical capabilities and experience wearing multiple hats at a startup would be an asset to Bain.

Unlike candidates whose focus is restricted to one discipline, I master both quantitative and conceptual thinking through a unique interdisciplinary coursework. An initiative-taker and macro-thinker, I excel in synthesizing new, complex problems and breaking them down to modular units that command action-oriented solutions. This approach has served me well in a variety of situations, for example:

Impact – At ABC Inc - a mobile startup, I helped raising seed funding by establishing and managing end-to-end branding with investors, partners, and end users, resulting in major increase in brand equity.

Multicultural Communication – Having lived in Asia, North America and Europe, I am highly adapted to quick-changing, fast-paced environment, and I am used to connecting to people with many different cultural backgrounds.

Leadership – I founded and managed the PR team for [My school club]that established the first official website, published video contents and improved social media presence, drawing over 300K views on YouTube.

I came to XYZ College with a mission to leave an impact – through deepening knowledge, fostering innovations and driving progress. As a life-long learner, I seek an environment where I could better myself while improving others’ lives. Given the diversity of talents and opportunities at Bain, I believe there is no better place for me to gain these experiences.

I would appreciate an opportunity to interview. Thank you for your consideration.
