Sample cover letter for Internship position at Deloitte


Business Analyst

Dear Hiring Manager,

I am currently pursuing a Master of Engineering Management student at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College. I am writing to express my interest in the associate consultant role at JP Morgan Chase & Co. Given what I’ve learned about JP Morgan Chase & Co. through research and conversations with current employees, I feel that I might be a good fit for this role- I hope you agree.

To me, Business Management combines business pragmatism with technical expertise to aid clients in addressing their needs. JP Morgan Chase & Co. seems to do this particularly well in the realm of the technical problems I find most interesting. This was confirmed for me through correspondence with current employees, who each gave me insight into a typical day at the firm. While talking with them, I had the added benefit of seeing this experience through the eyes of one relatively new employee and a more tenured one. These two perspectives lead me to believe that JP Morgan Chase & Co. might not just be a good place to learn for the summer but also a good place to build a more lasting career.

At Dartmouth, I have had the chance to dip my toes into Business Management through a project that involved designing and building quantitative models to perform cost benefit analysis and applying econometric analysis to economic and financial data and collecting market data and competitor information for various battery storage technologies for rural electrification of India. This project not only had me look at the technical side (which I was comfortable with due to my background in Electronics Engineering) but it also made me focus on developing sound business solutions. The tailored result was satisfying because it encompassed discovering more cost-effective approaches without sacrificing technology. Prior to Dartmouth, I polished my communication skills while working for a medium sized enterprise. This experience helped me learn how to work in a fast-paced and dynamic environment under strict deadlines, much like I would expect at JP Morgan Chase & Co.. I communicated with the internal and external stakeholders to develop a better understanding of the processes and the requirements of the company.

Over the course of my career thus far, I have learned how to drive logical and efficient decision-making processes, track open issues, document discussions, reduce the amount of time spent rehashing previous discussions and avoid going down rabbit holes. I’m hoping these skills would prove valuable right out of the gate in a summer experience at JP Morgan Chase & Co.. Thank you for considering me as a candidate for this role, and I look forward to following up in more detail.
