Sample cover letter for Internship position at Deloitte

POSITION:

Consultant

Dear Madam, Sir,

I am a last year student studying towards a Msc in Engineering at ESTP Paris, one of France's top ranking engineering schools, writing to apply for an internship starting from March 1st, 2016. Researching Monitor Deloitte, I was impressed by the culture at the firm and the way in which it approaches problems. Rather than try to fit problems into existing frameworks, teams at Monitor Deloitte have a tendency to look at each problem from a fresh and build a solution from the ground up. I am keen to gain a deeper insight into a career as a management consultant due to its intellectual rigor and have decided to apply to Monitor Deloitte because of its global presence, reputation for excellence and its commitment to thought leadership.

I believe that both my educational and professional backgrounds have well prepared me for the analytical challenges that are faced in this industry. Last summer, I gained a four months internship at CBRE working within Acquisitions and investment strategy analysts team. While enrolled on the internship programme, I developed a deeper understanding of due diligence and investment strategy by carrying out detailed analysis on the fundamental drivers of their prices using Microsoft Excel. Furthermore, I worked within a team to create and then give a presentation to senior managers developing interpersonal and teamwork skills which are of the utmost importance to Monitor Deloitte as all work is carried out it teams.

A career in management consultancy is characterised by the tackling of a wide variety of business problems using analytical and reasoning skills to provide solutions for clients. One of the things which attracted me to this profession is the variety enjoyed by working across numerous industries with numerous clients and the opportunity to make a real impact in shaping these industries.

Finally, I have enjoyed looking over the numerous practice cases found specifically the logical approach taken when addressing the numerous frameworks. I would welcome the opportunity to learn more about management, consulting and the opportunities that Monitor Deloitte could afford me in the future. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,
