Sample cover letter for Internship position at ING



20 October, 2014

ING Nederland, Amsterdam Area, Netherlands

Dear Sir or Madam,

My Name is EL HIYANI Nabil, studying Master 2 in Audit and Risk Management at the University of Angers in France, and I would like to be considered for a Risk management internship position at ING for 6 months, starting from January.

I believe that a position at ING, which is a world leader in its field, will allow me to apply my skill set to new and exciting challenges and to develop more of them. I’m aware that your company offers big opportunities for big careers in a challenging environment where learning never stops, and that's why I want to learn from this organization and be a part of it.

I am interested in this internship position because I believe that it would provide me with valuable knowledge and hands-on experience in the audit practice. After learning about the audit and risk management services from my education and various professionals, it has inspired me to pursue a career in audit because of their ability to work with various clients, learn more about the company and financial situations, which has always been an interest of mine. I believe that I can contribute to the success of the company during this internship through some of my previous experiences. I anticipate that this internship would offer me an opportunity to obtain audit experiences, team-building and networking with business professionals, which would expand my knowledge towards my future career in audit and risk management.

I have had significant experience in the audit field, first at "Rhône Congress and Party Center" and second at "FEZ-amsterdam" where I had an audit and accounting missions concluded with an audit report in accordance with accepted professional standards. I have led and managed various projects during my Internship at FEZ-amsterdam, I negotiated a new contract with the supplier and organized a business trip to Morocco. From that, I gained more leadership skills and knowledge about professional mannerisms that further developed my skills. I believe that my academic background along with my professional experiences provide a solid foundation for your Internship position.

In addition to my analytical strengths and experiences, I have very good communication and computer skills. I speak many languages and I am very good at using Microsoft Office, especially MS Access and Excel. I am a very organized and punctual person on whom you may not only rely to fulfill tasks with great attention to details, but to always look at them critically as well. Furthermore, I am logically-thinking and creative, and enjoy taking initiatives and working hard.

I welcome any opportunity to further discuss my enthusiasm through an interview at your convenience, thank you for taking the time in reviewing my application.

Yours faithfully,
