Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Capcellance


Business analyst

Dear Sir or Madam,

through the *company's name* webpage, I learnt about your firm’s present career opportunities. I was excited to read about the position of Investment Banking Analyst at *company's name*. The skills and qualifications you are seeking match exactly my abilities and experiences. I would like to be considered for the position and I am very confident to convince you of the qualities that I would bring into your company:
I finished my business studies at the University of xxx with a degree in banking and finance in October 2009 within in the minimum required time period of three years (among the top 10% of my class). My professional interest includes corporate finance, mergers & acquisition and private equity, which is why I focused on these fields during my bachelor studies (through a specific combination of subjects and term papers, i.e. through choosing the specialization course “company valuation” or writing a paper about mezzanine finance).

After my 4th semester, I did an internship in the field of equity research with the *company's name* Group, where I continued to work on a part-time bases until my graduation. Currently I am working for the *company* in the field of corporate finance / M&A consulting, following an internship with *company* in the same field. Originally, I planned to follow my master studies after the internship with the *current company*, but in the last weeks I have come to the conclusion that I am ready to enter the job market and an MBA after some years of professional experience will suit better my professional career. When I read that *company* is looking for an Investment Banking Analyst, I knew that that’s the perfect career choice for me at the moment.

I picked *company* over other M&A / private equity companies because of the combination of both businesses and the strong business focus on Eastern Europe. Taking into accounr my baltic background and my existing strong network in those countries, the prospect to develop and enter the markets in Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia for *company* in a few years is very exciting and motivating.

With my position at *company* I want start a successful and international investment banking career in Austria and the Eastern Europe countries and make a vital contribution to the success of the company.

I would be glad to get the opportunity to introduce myself!

Yours faithfully,
