English Professor

Penn State University

Dear Ms. 

My name is and [FM1] I am currently a senior economics and political science double major at State University[FM2] . I was recently introduced to your firm via, and was impressed with the culture and prestige associated with Morgan Stanley. I am interested in pursuing a full time analyst position in Wealth Management at your firm.

I have previously completed an internship in the Private Client Division at, Inc. Through this experience, working directly for two financial advisors, I have gained relevant experience in wealth management. I have also had the opportunity to be a teaching assistant for a three hundred level economics course. After exceling in the course, the professor asked me to be a teaching student from a pool of over three hundred students. My experience as a teaching assistant is directly transferable to wealth management. Working in wealth management and working as a teaching assistant both center around making the customer happy. As a teaching assistant it is all about the students, and as a financial advisor it is all about the clients.

Given my background in Wealth Management and my experience as a teaching assistant, I am a particularly good fit for this full time position at your firm. I know with the name Morgan Stanley has in the industry combined with my work ethic and ability that I will be able to help bring clients closer to their financial needs.

I hope you will carefully consider my application. A copy of my resume is enclosed for your reference. I would welcome an opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you and learn more about Morgan Stanley at your earliest convenience. I can be reached at or via email at Thank you very much for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
