Sample cover letter for Full Time position at McKinsey

POSITION:

Senior Consultant

Dear Ms. Recruiter,

Mr. Frank Hurley suggested that I forward my resume to you for consideration. I am a senior at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Isenberg School of Management majoring in Finance with a minor in Economics with a 3.6 GPA. I am currently working as summer intern with Alternative Investments Group.

As Mr. Hurley may have mentioned, I am in the top 5% of my class at Isenberg, and I recently was elected president of Beta Gamma Sigma, National Business Honor Society. In both my academic and extracurricular activities, I have consistently demonstrated my capacity to make a positive impact, regardless of the situation. My analytical and personal skills are ideally suited to management consulting, and I am confident that would be an asset to McKinsey & Company.

I have extensive knowledge of business applications including Excel, Word and Access and have interpreted complex data for several honor classes as well as an independent study on global investment strategies. I believe my strengths in data analysis, analytical problem solving, and communication have prepared me for a successful career in investment banking.

I want to thank you in advance for your time and preference list consideration. You may contact me at

Sincerely,
