Sample cover letter for Internship position at Mathematica


Accounting Intern

Dear Hiring Manager:

I am writing to inquire about employment opportunities in your firm. I have received my Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Rutgers University in May 2013 and I expect to graduate from my Masters in Financial Accounting program from Rutgers in May 2016.

As my resume indicates, I have passed all four parts of the Uniform CPA Examination, which I believe has provided me with the right technical skills to perform well in the accounting field. I have also held internships during my undergraduate years at Rutgers. I thoroughly enjoyed working alongside professionals which enabled me to gain real world accounting experience. Besides my internships, I also participated in case competitions and was involved in various community service related activities throughout my undergraduate years at Rutgers.

I attached my resume for your review and I hope we can arrange a time to discuss my qualifications. Should you require additional information, I can be contacted at the phone number and e-mail listed above. Thank you for your time and consideration.
