Sample cover letter for Internship position at Facebook



Dear Sir or Madam,

I’m writing to express my interest in your summer analyst position in Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group. I received information on the job post in WikiJob and would greatly value the opportunity to work and grow in your institution.

I am currently an investment research intern in From my manager who was educated and later worked in Japan for years, I had the chance to start knowing about Japanese firms. He talked about the consistent and cautious style that Japanese companies share. For example, they value how to create the process for the project and the agreement is reached from the majority of people related as well as the final outcome. As a result, it brings accuracy and consistency at all levels. Compared with speed-oriented and individualism value, I’m more appealed to the Japanese team-oriented mindset.I believe it will also benefit the bank when facing stricter regulations and compliance. Besides, I learnt that your program offers the flexibity to move around and complete rotations in a range of departments. It will be a great opportunity for an entry-level analyst to learn more about various lines of business and find out the field to develop in the future. My current interst mostly lands to capital financing while I would like to explore more on other fields. Lastly, I’m impressed by your sizable and growing presence in the investment banking industry in Asia. I believe there will be more opportunities to explore inside and grow with the bank who is the increasing leader.

During my 7-month internship , I gradually stepped out from a fresh university student to a full-time junior role. I worked closely with the investment team in the office every day, and I learnt a lot about the daily communication at work, e.g. how to construct, and more importantly, report my ideas in a concise way to senior managers. I also learnt how to maintain healthy relationhips during work in the long term when facing daily issues and challenges. So after accumualting working experience for a period, I believe I could not only be a trainee but also an asset to your firm. In the technical side, I developed a comprehensive foundation in valuation techniques, data analysis, market screening and investment research in preparation for a career in investment banking. One of my proudest achievements in the work is that I assisted in creating a DCF analysis and manager used the result to argue for a 5-10% discount.

I look forward to further learning about MUFG and discussing my qualifications with you. I can be reached.... Thank you.
