Sample cover letter for Internship position at Citi Bank Kenya


Graduate trainee

My name






Dear Sir/Madam,


I am extremely interested in an opportunity to intern at Citi bank Kenya limited. This is in response to the advert on university vocational program being offered by your company.

I have managed to gain commercial awareness through my participation in NSE’s investment discussion forums at, the NSE investment challenge and constantly reading financial news, articles and reports. Combining studies with a quite demanding freelance writing job has taught me effective time management skills, commitment and working under pressure. I have also acquired certification in financial mathematics from the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and together with the modules I have taken so far, I can make an excellent intern. Among modules I have taken, include Economics, Computational methods, financial reporting and Financial Mathematics. I also possess good data analysis skills using MS Excel, SPSS and R statistical software.

Given the expertise and experience that your company has in the financial industry globally, I wish to gain knowledge and experience in my field through the unique opportunity to learn from the citi bank staff. I believe the company’s motivated environment would provide me with an invaluable experience and that my passion and skills would make me a valuable asset to your company.

I will be available for interview at any time of your convenience. I would greatly welcome the opportunity to explore the contribution I could make at your company.

Yours sincerely,

My Name
