Sample cover letter for Internship position at Increadible Inc
A consulting covering letter must show that you have thought about the job and know about the organisation, and should briefly outline the qualities that make you the perfect candidate. Remember, for many consultancies, such as Credo, which do not ask for an application form, your covering letter is the first impression you will make and formatting the letter properly is essential.

Here are our seven top tips for writing a covering letter that will get you noticed (in a good way): Business Analyst, incredible INC
1. Make your covering letter memorable and to the point. Memorable means that recruiters can remember key things about you by the end of the letter. It’s not about adding a shock factor statement or something kooky.
Parthenon-EY, for example, looks for candidates who are intellectually curious. Therefore, a covering letter to this firm should demonstrate your intellectual curiosity as much as possible through descriptions of your achievements, motivations and experiences (not through stating ‘I am curious’!).
2. Write a new tailor-made cover letter for each position. This avoids the risk of leaving the wrong firm or recruiter name on there! It also allows recruiters to see how motivated you are to join their particular firm instead of just any consulting firm.
3. Open with style. Get a named contact to address – most firms will provide this on their website. If in doubt, use any contact numbers provided to phone and ask. Introduce yourself and explain which position you’re applying for and where you saw it advertised.
4. Demonstrate your interest in the firm to which you’re applying. Devote a paragraph to explaining why you are interested in the job and the firm. Show you’ve done your research by referencing some of the firm’s recent projects and explaining why they interest you.
