Sample cover letter for Full Time position at McKinsey & Company



Dear Sir/Madam,

Financial Analyst

I am writing in response to the Business Analyst Intern position offered. This cover letter is aimed at outlining the skills and knowledge I have acquired from my studies in related fields, as well as the diverse experience I have gained from my previous work experiences. I believe I possess the necessary capabilities in order to make a difference and create value in your organisation.

As a prospective graduate of the MSc Finance of Cass Business School in London I see McKinsey & Company as a great opportunity to begin my career. Both my undergraduate and postgraduate studies have provided me with the required knowledge to succeed in any finance role. More specifically courses in Advance Corporate Finance, Raising Equity Capital, Mergers and Acquisitions, and Trading and Market Microstructure among others, offer transferable skills that will hopefully be translated into making sound investment and management decisions in my future career. Additionally, having completed a training program at Olayan Group, a private investments firm, I have gained the specific experience needed to be successful in providing financial advice. More importantly my training coincided with the company restructuring its portfolio of investments, which gave me a great idea of the process, and provided me with invaluable experience to be able to cope with similar matters in the future. Moreover, during my internship in PricewaterhouseCoopers I was trained in both the consulting and assurance departments, where I had the opportunity to learn from industry experts and managed to complete my own projects for reputable clients.

McKinsey & Company’s culture is highly motivating, as the focus is on team-work and producing efficient, effective results in a timely manner. The ability of the firm to deliver complex solutions to its clients is one of the many factors that set McKinsey & Company apart from its peers. Along these lines, I trust that my long-term aims of continuous improvement and value creation for the company are perfectly associated with your line of business, thus a career opportunity in McKinsey & Company will be an invaluable experience for me.

I would like to thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Should you have any questions or require additional information, please feel free to contact me via telephone or email. I look forward to scheduling an interview in order to further discuss how I can positively contribute to your company’s success.

Yours faithfully,
