Sample cover letter for Internship position at Lazard


Spring Insight

Dear Sir or Madam,

I recently started studying for my bachelors degree in X and I am writing to express my interest in taking part at the Spring Programme with Lazard. It offers me the opportunity to get in touch with and learn from professionals in the investment banking industry.

My main reason for applying for a financial orientated programme is because of my experience at an insight programme last summer. Here, I had the opportunity to talk to and learn from bond traders who gave me a lot of input . I developed my fascination for global markets and corporate development and My willingness to constantly learn has drawn me into applying for the programme.

My motivation for applying to Lazard specifically, originated from their globally as one of the leading and most prestigious financial advisory firms. Lazard is big enough to be an institution which works on major transactions but also compact enough to work in small teams where everyone knows each other. This unique culture and working environment are facets that particularly draw my attention.
