Sample cover letter for Internship position at Goldman

POSITION:

Analyst

To whom it may concern;

I am recent graduate of XXXX XXXX with Bachelor�s Degrees in Electrical Engineering and Physics. I am planning on pursuing a career in Investment Banking and I believe the Goldman Sachs New Analyst Program is an ideal opportunity for me to build my career.

Even though I graduated with an engineering degree, I choose to divert my career in to finances as I have developed a passion for investment banking from an early age. I believe the quantitative skills and work ethic I have gained by majoring in two rigorous subjects have given me the potential to succeed in the rapidly changing financial industry. I would like to assure you of my capability to become a successful analyst since I am equipped with necessary education and experience. I have completed a yearlong internship at XXXX XXXX where I regularly interacted with clients, developing and maintaining an in-depth understanding of specific product lines, product applications, competition, and markets. I am also fluent in database administration and related programming languages and have completed a computer track curriculum for my engineering degree.

I am certain that you have a vast amount of applicants with the same qualifications and skills that I have to select from for the above mentioned position. However, I believe my determined nature and refusal to quit until I achieve my goals is absolutely unique. I am ambitious towards building a long term career at Goldman Sachs, growing professionally with the company. It is an honor to be considered for an opportunity at your prestigious firm and I assure you that my performance will not be a disappointment.
Yours Sincerely,
