Sample cover letter for Internship position at KPMG



I am currently a Junior at the University of Louisville where I expect to graduate with a BSBA in Accountancy in May of 2017 and will reach 150 credit hours in December of 2017. I am also a non-traditional student, maintaining a full-time job while attending school full-time. After returning to higher education in the fall of 2013 I have made the Dean’s list in every semester for which I was eligible and have earned a GPA of 3.928 at Louisville. I learned about the opportunity to intern with KPMG through my university’s career center and relish the prospect of learning from some of the industry’s best at a world-wide leader in the accounting trade.

I have spent the past 10 plus years in the hospitality industry working directly with customers on a daily basis which has polished my public speaking and interpersonal skills. While I regret that I cannot claim any campus organizations or student government positions on my resume, I have been employed in various levels of management through which I have gained quality leadership experience. As the purchaser for Sun Valley Resort’s Beverage Department I also acquired valuable experience with inventory, cost-control, and supply-chain logistics.

When it comes to my professional personality, the aspect of which I am most proud is my drive for success. Not only am I not content with the “bare minimum”, I want to be the best I can be at whatever it is that I do.

I would love the opportunity to prove myself as an asset for KPMG where I believe I can secure crucial skills that will enable me to progress within KPMG and in the accounting industry. I truly look forward to meeting with you to discuss the possibility of my future with your firm.
