Henry Boyle

Human Resource Executive,
Morgan Stanford Financial Services,
600 Broadway,
New York, NY 10012

Dear Mr. Boyle,

This is with reference to your advertisement in "The New York Times", dated December 1, 2011, inviting applications for the position of an intern investment banker in your esteemed organization. I hereby submit my application for the said position. As per the eligibility conditions prescribed in the advertisement, I am qualified for the said position in your organization. I am a finance graduate and presently I am completing the last semester of an MBA course. I am looking to start my career with a firm that offers enormous potential for growth to its employees and that has among the best employee retention rates due to a coherent working culture.

I have completed a bachelor's degree in finance with top grades from the Stanford University. During graduation, I have been involved in case studies related to acquisition of capital for new companies and for expansion of business of established companies. I have been part of student groups for the study of international finance. During the last year of graduation, I presented a paper titled, "The Great Depression and Lessons for the Present," at the GloFin Presentation Competition and received the first prize for the same.

I have considerable knowledge of all aspects of investment banking with a special interest in the primary market. My participation in study groups and case studies has apprised me with the broad contours of standard operating practices and regulations in the financial world. My interest in your organization dates back to my school days when you were among the few institutions demanding rationalization of financial regulations. Of particular interest to me is the comprehensive training that you provide to interns.

It will be a great pleasure to start my career with an organization like yours. I have attached my resume with this letter. You can contact me on the phone number or the email address mentioned above.

Yours Sincerely,
(Robert Cavendish)
