Sample cover letter for Internship position at NBCUniversal


Finance Intern


I am writing in response to your advertised Finance Intern position in Financial Planning & Analysis team as publicized through the City University of London Placement Office. I am currently a second year BSc (Hons) Accounting & Finance student at Cass Business School, City University of London, seeking to pursue a career in the vibrant, stimulating and exciting environment of Financial Advisory.

Through the two years in the Accounting & Finance course I have had an opportunity to expand my knowledge in subjects such as Accounting, Financial Analysis and Risk Analysis & Modeling. Having worked in the fashion industry for many years I have developed a profound interest in the media business. I believe that the Finance Intern position at NBC Universal would be a perfect fit for me and would give me an opportunity to pursue a career in a position that combines two of my passions – finance and media.

Travelling as a model I had to quickly adapt not only to the changing environment, but to different cultures and teams too. Being self-employed made me very self- motivated and independent. Modeling also gave me an insight into the media business, which I believe is an advantage even when dealing with financial data. Through the years I became able to quickly comprehend clients and their requirements and gained an understanding of what a client or a viewer wants to see. Furthermore, I am sure I would fit in the team easily; working in an Italian restaurant Pizza Lounge as a bartender and waitress I acquired great team working and leadership skills. Taking orders from clients and being in direct contact with them gave me the communication skills needed to succeed in professional environment. I am a hard worker that is able to work under pressure and manage time by prioritizing tasks based on importance and time given to accomplish them. I developed these qualities while combining full-time studying with part-time job and at the same time maintaining excellent academic record.

I am keen to join NBC Universal as I admire its dynamic, creative and inspiring culture together with well roundedness of the business. I am impressed by the group’s ability to combine individual businesses and ideas into one media powerhouse with a shared goal to inform, empower and inspire. Moreover, it would be an invaluable experience to work with and learn from the professionals working in the Universal Pictures International department. Therefore, I am confident that NBC Universal is an excellent place for my future career.

I appreciate your time taken to review my credentials and experience and thank you for your consideration.

Yours Sincerely,
