Sample cover letter for Internship position at Deloitte


Audit Associate

Dear Mr. Gallagher:

It is a pleasure to write to you and express my interest in the consultant position

offered by Deloitte & Touche's public sector practice. After speaking with Mr. Patrick

Cline and Mr. Dewey Loselle at the information session they conducted at Columbia

University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA), I believe that I am well

qualified to perform the work and meet the challenges of your firm.

In May I will receive a Master of Public Administration degree from SIPA, with a

concentration in advanced management techniques and education policy. These

studies grew out of my education reform work and new school development in South

Africa. While there, I directed an education enrichment program that included teacher

training, curriculum development and direct instruction. It was a formative and

consuming experience which demanded that I gain the trust of educators, politicians,

parents, and students. The program established goals, communicated a strategy, and

effected change by building on the stakeholders’ strengths. After two years, selfsustaining reforms were established that continue to benefit children.

While in South Africa, it became clear that effective school reform depends on

systemic growth in other public sectors, including health services, employment

initiatives, and infrastructure and environmental development. To learn more about

these public services, sharpen my analytical skills, and learn new strategies for

organizational change, I enrolled at SIPA. Appropriately, I have developed my

abilities in quantitative analysis and financial and organizational management, and

have applied these skills through continued work with public service organizations.

I would like to apply this experience and scholarship to the challenges that face the

public sector and education system and believe that consulting provides an exciting

opportunity to accomplish this goal. With objectivity, strategic thinking, and an

articulated vision, cooperative change can happen, and I would like to guide the

direction of this change. It is my sincere hope to have the opportunity to do so with

Deloitte & Touche.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Enclosed is my résumé, and if you require

any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
