Sample cover letter for Internship position at Lockheed Martin


Business Analyst

Hiring Manager

Lockheed Martin Enterprise Business Services

1040 S Parkway Frontage Rd

Lakeland, FL 33813

Dear Hiring Manager,

I am a finance student at the University of xxxxxxxxxxx applying for the business analyst internship available at Lockheed Martin for the summer of 2015. My education in finance, computer science and IT coursework, and applicable business management skills are highlights as to why I am the perfect candidate for this position.

I can contribute to the success of the technical operations organization by maximizing the efficiency and effectiveness of business processes via software optimization and development. I earned an “A” in both AP computer science and IT in business courses. These courses thoroughly covered the programming language of Java, The Microsoft Office Suite, and the five components of an information system coupled with the software development lifecycle. These courses, accompanied with my experience with financial statement preparation and analysis, will allow me to effectively cross-communicate with an integrated team of both software engineers and business analysts.

Lockheed Martin needs an effective communicator and creative problem solver that is analytical and organized for this position. As a small business owner, I have real world experience calculating risk, managing finances, creating cost-benefit analyses, preparing financial statements, and selling. I purchase, rebuild, sell, and maintain high performance vehicles. Every vehicle I consider purchasing, I calculate down to the dime just how much I will need to invest, and subsequently project how much I’ll be able to sell it for. I pride myself in the meticulous preparation of Excel sheets I use to analyze the profitability of every investment. Using this model, I have generated $xx,xxx in revenue in under 2 years with a xx.x% profit margin. I can scale my personal experiences with business management to apply them directly towards a broad understanding of the many business processes Lockheed Martin has in place.

I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to further review my qualifications with you, and discuss how I can contribute to the success of Lockheed Martin. Further information can be found included in my resume attached. At your convenience, please contact me via phone at xxx-xxx-xxxx or email at I look forward to future contact from you. Thank you for your consideration in adding me to the team.
