Sample cover letter for Internship position at McKinsey and company



Dear recruiting team,

I am writing to express my interest in joining McKinsey & Company as an Associate Consultant. Fascinated by personal success stories of my friends at McKinsey and the impact of work done by your company, I am very keen on exploring a career opportunity with you.

The prospect of working in management consulting excites me because it has a unique offering of working across different sectors and functions alongside business leaders. This broad exposure will ensure my professional growth by equipping me with skills that can be applied across all industries and business needs. Additionally, the non-hierarchical and inclusive nature of  firm attracts me.

I firmly believe that passion and the desire to deliver results that create lasting impact is the greatest motivator and essential to push the boundaries of one’s potential. It has been that one common thread which connects all the previous work done by me. My bevy of experiences and my eagerness to learn have helped me develop essential skills to solve problems and deliver valuable results within tight schedules. I hope to take along this confidence and make valuable contributions to McKinsey & Company and create meaningful impact.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to an opportunity to interact with you in the near future and to work with McKinsey & Company.
