Sample cover letter for Internship position at JP MORGAN



March 31, 2015

J.P. Morgan and Chase

Dear :

While searching on the J.P. Morgan Chase website for summer 2015 internship opportunities, I came across the Summer Finance Analyst Development Program. I believe that this internship will provide me hands on experience with day to day operations in several diverse areas of the organization. I would be a perfect candidate for this role as I am eager to learn different company functions and find the best fit for my skill set.

I am currently a junior at West Chester University pursuing a double major in Finance and Economics and while my complete resume is attached, I would like to highlight some skills applicable to the Summer Analyst Internship positon. While my direct experience with financial markets is limited, I am extremely eager and motivated to pursue a career in finance. Currently I am working full time hours, splitting my time waiting tables at a high volume restaurant while also working as a receptionist for a wellness spa. In addition to working to pay for tuition, I am enrolled as a full time student, excelling in all of my courses. I believe that my work ethic exemplifies my passion and drive, which will be focused solely on the position at hand should I be considered.

Thank you very much for your time, I look forward to discussing my application with you in greater detail. I will contact you within the next two weeks to make an appointment at your convenience. At that time, I would be happy to discuss my credentials more thoroughly.
