Sample cover letter for Internship position at Credit Suisse

POSITION:

Intern

I think that the best answer why I want to do an internship in Credit Suisse will be citing its new chief executive Tidjane Thiam “an exceptional business with a solid strategy and strong momentum”. Its dominance can be see everywhere, from its successful overcoming of the financial crisis to the 5th position in the most prestigious banking companies to work for. This could not be attained solely by the professionalism of the bank but also by a corporate spirit, which I find the most important factor in the decision of my internship. By taking this internship in the front offices of equity research and private banking departments I ultimately hope to have a sense of working among the professionals and not only to learn from them but also to take on responsibilities and be a part of a talented team which will always challenge me to reveal all my abilities.

I am a determined finance student who always set the highest goals and do everything it takes to achieve them. As evidence, I have not only excellent academic background and predicted 1st class honours but also multiple achievements in the field of sports and volunteering. To succeed in financial services industry I constantly do a research of changes in financial markets using Bloomberg or Thomas Reuters databases and take short courses such as Financial Trading programme from the Academy of Financial Trading. Massive knowledge and critical thinking helps me to communicate my own vision of financial industry to others in the Trading and Investment Society where I often come with innovative analysis of current issues.

I hope that this brilliant internship opportunity will help me to use all of my skills and knowledge to contribute to a company and to gain a valuable practice in financial sphere. I would be very happy to discuss my application with you and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
