Sample cover letter for Internship position at Intel


Financial Analyst

Respected Sir/Madam,

I am an M.Sc. in Management (Finance major) student from EMLyon Business School, France. I will graduate in 2017 and I wish to intern at Intel, Swindon/Istanbul as a financial analyst.

Being the tech savvy person that I am, Intel has always admired me. It prompted me to take up electronics and computer science engineering during my Bachelor’s. I co-founded the software start-up, Dolojo, which won the Start-up Village to Silicon Valley competition and was adjudged the 3rd best IT campus start-up in India. My interest in finance was sparked during the 2008-2009 stock market crash. Shortly after the collapse, I traded oil futures that fetched me over 200% in returns. Additionally, I volunteered part-time at the Sree Rajarajeshwari Temple, India, where I assisted in financial planning and preparing the annual temple budget with revenues in excess of 180,000 Euros.

My desire to pursue a career in financial analysis is fuelled by my interest in Corporate Finance. Coming from a technical background, I have experienced the raw power of Intel products and I truly understand what company stands for. Combining with this, a finance degree, can make me a very good fit for your team.

I would cherish the opportunity to discuss my credentials with you and to know more about the work done at Intel, at your convenience.

Thanking you for your time,
