Sample cover letter for Internship position at Mentorship program

POSITION:

Mentee

I am a 3rd year exchange student at UC San Diego majoring in economics and management. I’d like to take this opportunity to apply for FPN mentorship program. As an exchange student I am really interested in joining this program because it would help me gain an exposure to investment banking field and a more experienced perspective on bankers’ working lives. This is a kind of experience that I might not get in my home university.

A mentor can give me the benefit of his or her perspective and experience. He or she can help me assimilate to a new position and give me an insider’s view on how to get things done effectively. I would like to explore my career path and a mentor could ensure I don’t lose focus, continue down that road even when I am distracted by day-to-day pressures and define my career goals. I want to reach my full potential in my future jobs and promote my personal and professional development, which could be achieved by a good mentoring in a strategic and supportive way. I desire to develop my employee skills from this program that will remain valuable beyond the duration of this mentoring partnership. It will provide a direct opportunity for knowledge sharing - enhancing and tapping into corporate knowledge. I wish to expand my network of contacts and business acquaintances and I could use this mentoring program as an opportunity to explore the Wall Street world. With the help of a good mentor, I can work more efficiently with a clearer view of the future I am trying to achieve. This will help me feel more confident in my job, which will lead to a better job performance and more success along my chosen road.

Thank you for considering me and I look forward to hear from you soon. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at XXX-XXX-XXXX.
