Sample cover letter for Internship position at JMP Securities


Summer Analyst

As an ambitious, full-time student with time, project, and organizational management skills by juggling three jobs and a number of extracurricular leadership positions, I hope to expand my potential in the refreshingly challenging environment that the field of investment banking offers.

As you will see from my résumé, I have built my experiences from different fields including business, technology, politics, and education that can serve as a unique asset to the team by providing different perspectives to help formulate creative solutions.

At y, I spearheaded a project to establish a marketing strategy, something the company lacked for the past decade or so. By engineering a marketing strategy that capitalizes our LinkedIn platform to drive our digital marketing and sales, I instituted the Program. The program has currently demonstrated great success in driving internet users to our websites, increasing by over 60% since January of 2015, and a considerable rise in customer engagement in our social media channels. Because of this initial success, we are looking to expand the internship.

If selected as a summer analyst, I intend to use and continue to hone this strength during the program. As a person who always strives to reach the next level, I am thrilled at the possibility of being involved in a global company working on real projects with various team members.

I would love to have the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my qualifications and how I can contribute to the team at X. I sincerely appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
