Sample cover letter for Internship position at EY Strategy



Dear Selection Committee,

With this letter, I would like to express my interest in taking part in EY Strategy group.

I am a graduate student completing a specialist degree in Mathematical Economics and information science department at the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics. Currently majoring in financial risks management, I have demonstrated strong academic performance in all mathematical and finance courses, maintaining a 4,4 GPA in my major. The courses I have completed have given me a solid foundation in the tools, processes and methodologies involved in the successful econometric analysis and management of portfolio-investment strategies. I have a proven ability to learn challenging concepts quickly and have developed competencies in diverse areas

Throughout my studies at Plekhanov University I have demonstrated academic excellence and strong leadership qualities through extracurricular involvement. These qualities made me possible to become the monitor of my group and, subsequently, to take part in the final of "Student of the year in Plekhanov University". Furthermore, participation in All-Russian competition of research works of bachelors, masters and PhD in Economic Sciences and the National Festival of Science and The XXV International Plekhanov Readings gave me experience of gathering and processing information for scientific research.

I further developed my personal qualities and skills in my work practice. Summer Intern at Embassy of the Russian Federation in Beijing, China taught me the basics of business etiquette and enriched my knowledge of foreign languages. Work experience at KPMG taught me how to become part of a big team and to meet tight deadlines.

My resume is enclosed with this cover letter further detailing my educational background and skills. I look forward to an opportunity to discuss this application with the companies’ employees in the near future.

To conclude, I do believe that my participation in EY Strategy group program can make a strong contribution to the educational process and hope that thereafter I can be an excellent addition to your team.

Yours sincerely
