Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Mckinsey


business analyst

Dear Sir,

I am a Computer Science graduate student with Management as a minor at NYU. I am interested in the Business Analyst position at your firm. I perused the job requirements, and I am glad to state here that they match perfectly with my experience and technical expertise.

I have gradually developed a strong interest in user experience and have burned the midnight lamp to learn all the tools such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Balsamiq, Axure, proto.io etc. I can build wireframes quickly, create fresh and innovative designs for web and mobile apps, also build mockups and prototypes for them easily. I encourage you to check out my portfolio at www.behance.net/pankhureesrivastava

I was the Teaching Assistant at NYU for software engineering under Professor Fred Strauss till May 2014; therefore I am well aware of the software development lifecycles (SDLC). I can easily make modelling diagrams and requirement analysis documents which is an important part of being a Business Analyst.

As a computer science student I am exposed to the programmatic part of the applications and I believe this will aid me when I work closely with developers. I took two management courses at NYU which increased my knowledge of that domain. I am particularly fond of “Managing Tech Change and Innovation” which is related to the latest changes in technology and managing them in a firm.

Apart from that, I have good communication skills. I have always been good at debating and writing competitions in college. I interned at TransPerfect this summer and my manager always appreciated my communication skills and encouraged me to follow my dream of being a business analyst. It was another motivating factor for me. Also, recently I was a Graduate Orientation Leader for Fall 2014 students at Poly which allowed me to interact and manage 500 new students.

I am particularly interested in your firm because it has a good reputation. I have heard good reviews about the environment and work culture at your firm and I can’t wait to be a part of it. To know more about me kindly visit my personal website i.e. http://pankhureesrivastav.wix.com/resume. I believe if given a chance I can prove to be an asset for the company. I thank you for your time and consideration. I hope to hear from you soon.
