Sample cover letter for Internship position at Houlian Lockey



Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to express my interest in the position of an Intern in Corporate Finance and to convince you of my abilities to succeed in this role. The excellent reputation of your corporate finance services as well as great corporate culture is the main reason for my application to Houlihan Lokey.

Currently I am writing the final thesis for the Bachelor of Laws degree and work as an intern at PGC Group, a strategic consultancy. In this position I am responsible for collecting and analysing relevant business information, undertaking company evaluation, and assisting management in reporting the findings to the client. From the start of my occupation I have not only conducted entire projects independently, but also developed valid hypotheses and presented my conclusions to the entire team. In particular my problem-solving talents and effective communication skills have contributed to the successful completion of several projects in such varying industries as automotive, engineering consultancy, and industrial equipment.

The foundations of my abilities were laid by means of the completion of graduate studies at such renowned universities as St. Andrews and Edinburgh in the UK. Degrees in two academic disciplines of economics and law bestowed me with rigorous quantitative skills alongside advanced analytical competences. Excellent grades and several awards and scholarships confirm the dedication and result-driven approach of my engagement. During my full-time studies I was continuously working as a waiting employee and have advanced my knowledge in corporate finance by means of self-education and completion of supplementary courses. Further I have had a chance to collect valuable experience while volunteering for GuteTat Foundation in Hamburg by contributing to a five-month project for children with emigrational background.

My enthusiasm and will to deliver professional advice in the area of corporate finance are unmatched by other candidates and would provide considerable benefits to the quality of the entrusted to me tasks. High standards of integrity coupled with a great sense for teamwork allowed me to complete several internships to the fullest satisfaction of the employers. I am humbly proud to have been offered a full-time position at each of my previous placements.

I would like to thank you for the time you took to consider my application and will be delighted to introduce myself in person at the convenient for you time.
