Sample cover letter for Internship position at J P



Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is xxxxxx and I am currently in my first year of a Master of Science in Accounting, Financial Management and Control at xxxx University. I was recently introduced to your firm via a recent xxxx event in Milan and was very impressed to learn about your company and what it is doing in the financial industry today. I would like to apply for a position as an Investment Banking Analyst next summer.

I have recently completed an internship at the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce West in Los Angeles. At the IACCW, one of my key achievements was to find new Italian wineries interested in participating at “Vino California 2015” which has resulted in a 16,6% increase of wine grape varietals at the event. Also, I was delegated by my supervisor to prepare the presentation for the annual general meeting, the annual event attended by all members of the chamber. In addition, I have gained experience in databases and the ability to find accounting and financial information about companies of different markets. This internship helped me to develop leadership skills while working with other interns and it honed my ability in using Excel for business purpose.

I wrote a thesis about acquisitions of intangible assets in the wine and spirit industry and I am used to deal with financial data, reports and DCF valuation. Furthermore, my work experience in the U.S. and in an accounting firm in Italy have made me proficient in the use of Excel and have given me the opportunity to work with people coming from different parts of the world and with different cultures. I am a particular good fit for the position as an Investment Banking Analyst at your firm. Your track record of clients and deals at xxxxxx and the significant responsibilities given to Investment Banking Analyst have really impressed me and I look forward to joining and contributing to your firm.

I would welcome an opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you and to learn more about xxxx at your first convenience. Thank you for taking the time to read my application.
