Sample cover letter for Internship position at KMB


Data Analysis Intern


Dear XXX

My name is XXX and I am a second-year undergraduate Business Administration student at the XXX University.

I write to you today to inquire about a possible summer internship in your office. I am highly interested and passionate about finance and would love to learn under your tutelage. I can assure you I am highly proficient, efficient and businesslike in fetching coffee, photocopying and filing, amongst other important tasks. In all honesty, I just wish to be in the presence of professionals in this industry and learn as much as I possibly can.

I shan’t waste your time by inflating my credentials. I have no previous experience in such an industry, nor do I have any formal qualifications, yet. What I do possess is diligence and a friendly personality, eager to supersede expectations and gel into team-working environments to contribute nothing but my full potential.

Working under your wings will provide me the unique opportunity to develop in a competitive international business environment, which I believe will prepare me well for a career in this field. I hope my letter has in no way offended you, and sincerely hope that you consider me as a worthy candidate for such an exclusive opportunity. I have attached my résumé for your reference.

Yours sincerely,
