Sample cover letter for Internship position at McKinsey


Summer Associate

My desire to pursue a career with McKinsey is the result of my passion to provide the right solutions to the client’s problems and bring about positive change through rigorous problem solving and exceptional teamwork.

My strength lies in a diverse background comprising of an MBA, close to 4 years of work experience in Sales and Marketing for a manufacturing company and exposure to an international working environment in the Middle East. Customer focus has been the quintessential feature of my job. The client-facing atmosphere inspired me to come up with original and effective solutions and at the same time provide solutions that added value for the client. Working with individuals at all levels with my clients as well as the internal product management team helped me achieve sales growth year after year as well as introduce new products into the local market.

The approach I adopted during my work in technical sales was that of providing effective solutions to the client’s needs by integrating the knowledge available to the company across the globe and by getting the client involved during the design and selection process. I believe McKinsey follows a similar approach with the concept of “One Firm” and the exceptional impact it achieves by engaging clients during the problem solving process.

Thank you for providing me the opportunity to apply for the Summer Associate Program. I hope to further discuss my motivation and suitability in more depth at interview.
