Sample cover letter for Internship position at JP Morgan


Corporate & Investment Bank Investment Banking Summer Associate

I am a member of the Morehouse Business Association (MBA), I learnt about an finance internship position for summer 2016 in your organization through an email that was sent to me by the MBA information department. I believe I am the best candidate for this position because of my course of study and my previous involvement in activities related to this job.

The passion to be in Corporate America saw me developing an intense interest towards economics which I am majoring with right now, I am also minoring in mathematics. In order to develop the necessary skills I have been involved with multiple organizations in high school. I led a successful fundraising project with the Higherlife Club that raised $500 towards elementary school orphans in our community. This was my first project and it sparked the zeal in me to do more. From then I am fully committed to do any project that will yield more money. I read from your website that you help those students trying to exploit their potential and this I promise I will be able to do once mi join your company not only for the benefit of the company but also for my advancement. The drive to achieve goals in specific periods has developed me into a hard worker who can give anything in for the completion of a project. I held leadership positions in high school; these positions helped me to develop problem solving and oratorical skills. I believe the internship position will give me the necessary exposure that I need as I will be working with experienced people who already have knowledge in the area and have been successful in even greater projects. This will opportunity will go a long way in imparting more skills to me. I have already taken higher levels of mathematics including calculus 2 and 3 and statics. Currently I have a GPA of 3.3

Having a summer internship with you will be one my greatest achievement. I look forward to discuss internship opportunities with you. I will be contacting you after two weeks to check up if the position is still there and see if you need any more information. I am looking forward to working with you.
