Sample cover letter for Internship position at EY



Following thorough research and conversations with EY representatives at the Careers Fair, I aspire to join your organisation through the Financial Services Advisory Consulting Programme in Business Advisory. This award-winning graduate program is particularly appealing as it provides the opportunity to work for top financial services firms and alongside exceptional consultants. Through my academic pursuits, work experiences and extra-curricular activities, I have developed several strengths which align with the skills that the role requires.

During my internship at the Barclays Bank, I have honed my analytical and critical thinking skills. I completed two major Supervision projects in teams: one at a leasing company La Prudence Leasing Ltd and another at a bank, Banque des Mascareignes Ltée. I was responsible for carefully analysing hundreds of varying client records and evaluate whether they complied with all relevant regulatory guidelines. I presented my findings to the team and collaborated to produce the final reports outlining the degree of compliance the firms observed and the changes they should implement. Both reports were highly commended by the Deputy Governor.

For the past 3 years, I have been tutoring young people at both primary and secondary levels in Mathematics and French. The experience of coaching people of different backgrounds and building a trust relationship with their parents has greatly enhanced both my interpersonal skills and leadership abilities. I have also sharpened my communication skills from the habit of explaining a complex concept using techniques which are best adapted to my audience’s interest and ability. This skill will undoubtedly help me during the numerous meetings with my team-workers and with clients.

I am strongly interested in learning about the business issues that the clients of EY are facing and how broader industry issues such as the continuously-evolving regulatory landscape affect them. I look forward to building my knowledge and skills by working alongside remarkable consultants in your multi-talented teams. EY’s extensive client base and wide global reach imply unparalleled learning opportunities. Furthermore, by removing the academic barriers in its application process, your firm has shown it genuinely values talent and provides equal opportunities to all. I am eager to put in the hard-work for the challenges that will come along with the positive prospects in the Financial Services forecast by the EY Macroeconomic Overview.

At this stage in my career, I look forward to joining an ambitious and reputed firm such as EY to develop my potential to excel in the business consulting realm. I would appreciate the consideration for an interview whereby I can provide you with further details on my achievements and skills.

Yours faithfully,
