Sample cover letter for Internship position at Barclays
Dear Ms. Jones:
I am writing to apply to the Financial Professional Associate Internship Program recently advertised on
Career Wings, the University of North Florida’s job database. I am currently a junior double-majoring in
Finance and Financial Services and am currently looking to gain experience in my field.
My work background and coursework have supplied me with many skills and an understanding of
insurance products and finance that I believe will allow me to quickly become an asset to your
organization. My previous role as a teller at Bank of America provided me with an opportunity to work
closely with the bank manager and gain first-hand experience working with customers on personal
financial matters. In that position, I consistently received excellent scores on random customer surveys.
In addition to my work experience, I have taken relevant upper level coursework in the areas of insurance,
financial management and entrepreneurship and currently serve as Treasurer of the Finance and
Investment Society. My coursework and campus involvement have allowed me to begin to build contacts
within the financial services industry and to gain perspective on the many aspects of financial services and
how to apply my education in real world situations.
My resume is attached for your review and I would welcome the opportunity to interview for this position
and discuss my qualifications in greater detail. Should you need any
