Sample cover letter for Internship position at KPMG



January, 2015

Sub: Application for Internship opportunity at KPMG.

Dear Sir/Ma’am,

I would like to apply for an Internship opportunity at KPMG, India. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Computer Science & Engineering. I am at present in my fourth year of college class expecting to graduate with Honors in May 2015.

During these four years in university I have developed a very keen interest in Business management as well as Technical Engineering. Pursuing engineering and doing practical projects has given me the opportunity to sharpen my analytical and problem solving skills, and has made my thinking more structured, results-oriented and pragmatic. Being part of an Entrepreneurship society as well as studying Management, Finance and Marketing as subjects has given me hands on experience of the business world. Hence I feel that an internship opportunity at KPMG would be a perfect ground for me to learn and to pursue my interest in business and finance.

I am an astute worshiper of hard work and I believe that passion to achieve is the key to success. This belief has helped me come this far. As house captain I was awarded the best house trophy for the calendar year 2013-2014. Being a house captain has helped me foster my leadership as well as management skills. Moreover the analytical and iq I possess doesn’t reflects in my marks but it does reflects in my achievements in different curricular activities. I have always tried to explore my abilities in other disciplines. Through my participation in NIIT’s active campus life, I have honed my interpersonal and teamwork skills.

I believe that business and management is the ideal place for my caliber and talents, and the perfect opportunity to expand my intellectual and career prospects. I would be highly honored to work for such a prestigious company. Please find enclosed my resume for your perusal. I firmly believe that with my skills and qualifications I have the potential to start contributing from day one and given the chance I assure you I'll prove to be an asset to your organization.

Looking forward to your positive reply.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
