Sample cover letter for Internship position at Deloitte
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.
