Sample cover letter for Internship position at McKinsey


Fellow Analyst

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am applying for a position as Fellow Analyst, starting in spring 2015. I have an avid interest in management consulting, and as a member of McKinsey Fristhand I have been in touch with McKinsey for over a year now. I believe this opportunity will provide me with an unparalleled learning curve and the best possible experience in consulting.

I will graduate from the XY College with an expected GPA of 3.6 in February. I am pursuing a dual degree. While my business studies coursework has taught me the relevant technical skills, my economics studies have provided me with rigorous analytical skills. I have successfully used and further developed both at a four months M&A internship at XY Bulge Bracket Investment Bank.

As a very ambitious person, I believe that the high paced environment and the bright people at McKinsey will enable me to tap my full potential. Furthermore I am certain that with my strong work ethic and analytical thinking skills alongside my initiative and creativity I will be able to contribute to the firm’s success.

I look forward to the opportunity of being interviewed in order to share more about my experience and skills that I could bring to your company. Pleaso do no hesitate to contact me in case any questions arise. Thank you for your time and consideration.
