Sample cover letter for Internship position at J.P.Morgan


Summer Intern


Dear Sir or Madam,

I am a 2nd year Accounting and Finance student at Warwick Business School, where I have achieved the top result of my year in Entrepreneurship. Having been introduced to J.P. Morgan through its company presentation in London, I had the chance to speak with your M&A Associate Matias Steen, who inspired me to apply for the CIB Investment Banking Analyst Summer Programme 2015.

I am attracted to J.P. Morgan because of its leading reputation in the field of M&A, thereby offering the opportunity to work on some of the world’s largest deals such as Actavis’ recent $25 billion acquisition of Forest Laboratories. J.P Morgan also appeals to me because of its diverse and open culture, for which it has been recognized amongst ‘’World’s Ideal Employers” by Universum in 2014. Moreover, I admire J.P. Morgan for being a responsible firm that shares my vision of giving back to the community, thereby positively contributing to our society through the J.P. Morgan Chase Foundation.

The CIB Investment Banking Analyst Summer Programme represents an exceptional opportunity to immerse myself into J.P. Morgan's corporate culture as well as to learn more about its Investment Banking divisions and to receive feedback on the one that suits me the most. Driven by the dynamic pace of this industry, I look forward to be working on a broad range of M&A transactions by engaging in team discussions, attending client meetings and assisting full-time analysts in their daily tasks such as researching industries, drafting presentations, performing valuations, and building financial models.

Having achieved a First Class Honours Degree in Accounting & Finance, I believe I can bring the necessary quantitative and analytical skills needed for this position. As a summer intern at ABN AMRO, I gained experience in building revenue forecasting models, identifying data trends as well as delivering presentations to C-Level executives. Moreover, during HSBC’s Spring Insight Week, I had the opportunity to pitch on potential M&A transactions and perform comparable company valuations for the TMT industry. Finally, through M&A research with Professor Tao Li, I demonstrated excellence in collecting, synthesizing and interpreting financial data which, together with my fluency in English, French, Russian and Dutch, I hope will allow me to contribute beneficially to your internship.

Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
