Sample cover letter for Internship position at CastleOak


investment banking

Dear Recruiting Manager,

Currently, I am a first year student in the Master of International Economics and Finance program at Brandeis University’s International Business School, pursuing a specialization in Asset Management. Thru my classes and relationships built with professors I became convinced of my interest for Investment Banking. I aim to be a professional organizing talent and resources to provide financial solutions for companies and/or private investors. Therefore, I am submitting my application for the Investment Banking Spring Intern position at CastleOak Securities.

Having gained technical and analytic skills through focused course work, and skills of determination and a strong work ethic through activities including involvement in both Karate and Rugby Clubs, I am prepared to add value to the company and create a wider network of interpersonal relationships that are a fundamental to a successful career. I thrive on teamwork and can take on positions of leadership, yet also work with attention to group dynamics and productivity in any group role.

Working at CastleOak Securities would mean an opportunity to further my abilities while enjoying a uniquely stimulating work environment. The CastleOak model of creating meaningful relationships with their customers, focused on providing them superior service in financial advisory, equities, fixed income and capital markets trading in general given the uncertainty of the market. It is well known that CastleOak is a leading innovative firm in the financial sector, managing several IPO’s and bond underwrittings. As a motivated candidate for the Summer Intern position, I am ready and willing to dedicate my abilities to this program. Thank you for your time and for considering my application. I look forward to hearing from you.
