Sample cover letter for Internship position at Mckinsey




As a first year student at the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad, I would like to be considered for the associate intern program. After attending the on-campus presentation, I became excited about the career opportunities at McKinsey. I was particularly impressed with the ability and focus to serve the clients in different fields and across different functions which result in a long-term relationship with the client. Additionally, as the company acts as an advisor to the biggest NGO’s and governments across the world, it gives me a chance to leverage my analytical and creative abilities to create a social impact.

I believe my experience as an entrepreneur helps me have a better understanding of the various issues that can be faced from the ideation to the implementation stage of a project. I have had experience in the different stages from planning to setting up a manufacturing facility, managing operations and studying the market for the product. The problems or issues faced at the different stages have also helped me keep a calm attitude at times of ambiguity and volatility. All this backed with strong analytical and communication skills would help me become an effective part of the team at McKinsey.

During my MBA, I have focused on developing a structured approach while analyzing situations, this along with knowledge of various fields like finance and marketing along with my prior experience and passion for problem solving would help me contribute well as an associate intern in McKinsey.

I believe I possess the necessary skills and would appreciate the opportunity of interviewing with the firm on November 4th. Thank you for your consideration, please find the resume attached for your reference.
