Sample cover letter for Full Time position at KPMG

POSITION:

Audit Intern

GOT THE JOB? Yes

I am a candidate for an LL.M. in Taxation at New York University School of Law, and I am writing to express my interest in an associate position in the New York Office of Green, Garfinkel & Redlich. Your firm’s strong international tax practice and growing presence in Asia first drew my attention, as I believe my skills and international background are well suited for an entry-level position in a global firm such as yours. I received my J.D. from Villanova University School of Law where I graduated in the top 15 percent of my class. Throughout the pursuit of my law degree, I worked to expand my experience and knowledge in the area of taxation, as I knew from my first year that I had a strong interest in this field. I excelled in Villanova’s tax law classes, earning a GPA of 3.68 in my five tax classes. Additionally, I engaged in both professional and community service activities that further enhanced my skills as a lawyer and tax professional. I am regarded as a very diligent and thorough worker, possess excellent research and writing skills, have a proven capacity to undertake serious responsibilities and can work effectively in a challenging environment. I look forward to putting my experience and enthusiasm to work on your firm’s behalf. My resume and J.D. transcript are enclosed for your consideration, and I will follow up with my Fall semester grades, once they are available in January. I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you further about the needs of your firm during the coming year
