Sample cover letter for Internship position at Deloitte and Touche


Advisory Intern

Dear Deloitte & Touche Recruitment,

I am applying for the the Advisory Intern position in the Accounting & Finance department at Deloitte & Touche Recruitment. As a junior at UC Berkeley aiming to pursue accounting and finance professionally, I am eager to pursue an advisory internship opportunity at Deloitte.

After attending the Big Four Forum held in UC Berkeley and learning more about Deloitte & Touche, I researched more about my potential prospects at the company. I am interested in the Advisory Internship position at the San Francisco office because I believe it will provide me with a unique opportunity to diversify my work experience while working with high profile clients in a professional environment. I have had the opportunity to hold a diverse work experience profile and through which I have mastered a variety of data analytical as listed on my resume as well as exercised problem solving skills through a variety of approaches, ranging from legal advising to the analysis of financial reports and evaluations.

Through my previous work experience I have developed a focused work ethic and cultivated the capacity of working in a team environment as well as assuming a great degree of self­-sufficiency with minimal basic instruction based on the circumstance at hand. The variety of my work experiences has offered me exposure to a multitude of work environments enforcing the ability of adapting to unfamiliar situations and shifting priorities quickly as well as a willingness to grasp new concepts clearly.

Specifically, as Vice President of Interact, an international service based organization, I have become comfortable with budgeting and finance of an organization as well as the distribution of funds in a systematic and comprehensive manner. While as the Treasurer of the UC Berkeley Sailing Team I familiarized myself with improving systems of account through Google Scripts. Additionally, my internship at Habib Bank Limited this past winter provided me with direct insight into working with financial data and evaluating spreadsheets in order to attain viable solutions and propose strategic decisions to improve company profits. Currently, I am acting as the Business Operations Co0rdinatior of the student government body at UC Berkeley. My primary responsibility is managing our $1.8 million investment portfolio by researching and analysing the most beneficial stocks and funds to invest in with correspondence with Boston Trust & Investment Management.

As a double major in Economics and Computer Science as well as Treasurer of the UC Berkeley Sailing team and Business Operations Coordinator of the ASUC I am comfortable working in a fasted paced environment and have proven to excel in rigorous work setting. At Deloitte I believe I will not only be able to contribute from the company but thrive and further develop my personal experience and professional skills.

Please let me know if I can provide you with any further information. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and consideration.
