Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Gregory Consultants




I am writing in response to the recent vacancy for your company, that was advertised

on the Oxford University Careers Service website. I wish to apply for the post of

Business Analyst with Gregory Consultants.

As you will see from my CV, I am in my final year at Oxford University, studying

Mathematics. My internship with Schroder Salomon Smith Barney convinced me that

I have the personality and qualities necessary to be a successful business analyst, and

I am keen to pursue a career in the consultancy sector, as I believe it will give me

exposure to, and involvement with, a variety of different organisations. From my

discussions with those in the industry, I know that you value breadth of experience

and encourage your analysts’ involvement with all stages of a project. The

opportunity to see a project from conception to conclusion appeals enormously to me.

I would like to work in an environment where the pressures and rewards are

immediate, and I am applying to Gregory Consultants because it is an expanding firm

with a good reputation for both training and rewarding its employees. I feel confident

that I can meet the challenges presented by such a fast-moving business.

I am effective in team situations, and enjoy working with others towards a common

goal. I have sought out opportunities to work on worthwhile projects throughout my

time at university, and planned and managed publicity for the college ball and the

voluntary organisation Jacari. My three-month placement as a business analyst

involved work in a range of areas, including research and modelling, and I was able to

use the analytical skills honed during my degree to good effect, as well as developing

my written and oral communication skills liaising with visiting sixth-form students.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely
