Sample cover letter for Internship position at Morgan stanley



Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a motivated master student who is eager to start in the Finance sector, and determined to apply for the possibility to do the Finance Industrial Placement Programme for one of the leading financial service company in the world.

During the recent years I became fascinated by the finance sector and the complexity and thrive it comes with. The possibility to determine financial strategies at an executive level, finding solutions for financing questions, the art of valuation and the excitement of the negotiation process truly passionate me. I welcome taking down these challenges with a motivated and ambitious team in a highly pressured environment and deliver high quality results to the clients at the same time. Furthermore, I appreciate the goal-orientated nature of this sector, as well as the wide range of skills set required for the different phases.

The long track record and specific industry knowledge have led Morgan Stanley to the top position in the finance services league tables. This placement will provide me with an opportunity to work with and learn from its exceptional team of employees and build a strong foundation for the career that I am striving to attain.

During the course of my masters I have studied about the financial modelling and my previous experience are the reasons I have applied for this position.

Please find enclosed my resume. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you in person. I thank you for your time considering my application.
