Sample cover letter for Internship position at General Electric (GE)



To whom it may concern,

I am writing because I am extremely interested in securing an internship position in your Financial Management Program. I believe I am a strong applicant for this esteemed program and am confident that I will be able to contribute significantly to General Electric’s Finance sector.

Throughout my college career, I have demonstrated perseverance and consistently challenged myself to obtain the knowledge and experience that would prepare me for a challenging and rewarding career. I am ready to bring that same motivation to GE. I am an undergraduate at __________ where I am pursuing a major in Finance along with a minor in Economics.

I have gained diversified work experiences within the corporate finance sector, the restaurant service industry, and pharmaceutical industry, which have prepared me well for the challenges as a finance intern. During my tenure at each of my internship and job positions, I gained valuable knowledge about the industry, developed my communication and organizational skills, and formed strong, lasting relationships with a variety of professionals in each field. I am eager to bring this knowledge and skill set to GE to contribute to the company’s proven success. Over the 2014 summer I interned as a financial analyst with____________. As an intern I managed the annual GE audit with  ___________, for the U.S. accounts receivable factoring program and worked closed with the GE auditors to provide necessary audit evidence, which spiked my interest in obtaining a position within your company. I was invited to return this summer as an intern at ____________, but I am especially excited about the summer program that GE offers students and I feel that this opportunity would provide me with additional knowledge and skills that will add to my abilities to positively serve clients in the financial field.

I firmly believe that my educational and work background, along with my strong work ethic, loyalty and interpersonal skills make me a perfect fit for this position, and that I would benefit GE if chosen for this position. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,
