Sample cover letter for Internship position at Deloitte



I am applying for the Analyst position at Deloitte Consulting posted on GTS, The Fuqua job posting system. I had the pleasure of talking to Felicia Harmon at the Duke Career Fair last week. Her compelling description of Deloitte’s collegial atmosphere is what makes Deloitte Consulting stand out. Deloitte is not only a prestigious firm but one that emphasizes collaboration and a team-oriented approach. This team-oriented approach, coupled with my desire to work in such a dynamic environment, convinced me to apply. 

I sharpened my analytical and decision-making skills while working in a project-driven environment over six months at EY. The environment was fast-paced and intense and I was constantly analyzing data and communicating with the client. The business knowledge I am gaining at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, in combination with the following skills, puts me in a position to contribute immediately in a case team. 

• Strong leadership skills: As elected President of the student body, I led a team of four, which managed over $120,000 and 13 clubs. Not only did I interact on a weekly basis with the Dean of Faculty and draft our program’s first honor code, but I also led the organization of a bike tour, which resulted in a $43 000 donation for children suffering from cancer. 

• Problem-solving ability: With a current GPA of 3.63 at The Fuqua School of Business and an undergraduate GPA of 3.7 I have demonstrated my academic success. My education has touched on all aspects of business, but the focus of the coursework was always on solving real-life managerial problems using case studies and corporate representative lectures. 

• Teamwork and interpersonal skills: Throughout my studies and internships I have been a member of several teams. As Assurance Intern at EY, I enjoyed working in eight different teams with members from various seniority levels. At The Fuqua School of Business, I work weekly on a five-member team, originating from five different countries, to succeed in business and finance cases. 

I look forward to being on your interview schedule. Thank you for your time and consideration.
