Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Go IRISH


Entry Level Analyst

As a senior Accounting and Economics double major at the University of Notre Dame, I am seeking a full-time position that will utilize my strong communication and analytical skills. From the research I have conducted on Go IRISH and through contact with Ms. Eileen Froehlke, I am interested in pursuing Lilly’s associate tax analyst opportunity. What has especially drawn my attention to Lilly is its drive and dedication towards research and development and meeting needs that have been previously unmet in the medical field. As well, Lilly’s expectations of high integrity and respect for all the people the corporation serves impressed me.

As a tax consultant intern for True Partners Consulting, I worked extensively in researching Section 199 and other complex tax deductions for our clients. I created templates for future use in evaluating the availability of specific deductions and also generated a methodology for the analysis of fixed assets for tax purposes. As an international tax intern for Zimmer, Inc., I was able to learn the foundations of the U.S. and foreign tax structures and experience first hand the importance of tax solutions in a Fortune 500 company.

In my Principles of Marketing class, I led a team of eight through a semester-long project which followed a product through the entire marketing process and resulted in a 200-page report and 20 minute presentation. I led discussions, critiqued my team members’ work, and motivated them to produce the best work possible. Outside of my academic and work experiences, I served as the Community Service Coordinator for the Black Cultural Arts Council and fostered a relationship with the Robinson Community Learning Center establishing community service activities for our club.

Accompanying this cover letter is my resume, which I also submitted through Go IRISH for your review. I would like the opportunity to further discuss with you the associate tax analyst position and my qualifications. I noted that Lilly will be conducting on-campus interviews and hope to talk with you sometime before then. Thank you for your consideration.
