Sample cover letter for Internship position at NOMURA


Spring Intern

Dear Madam/Sir,

My name is (NAME) and I am currently a 2nd year financial economics student at (BUSINESS SCHOOL). I was recently introduced to Nomura via (NAME) who works in (TEAM) and I was impressed with what I learned about the entrepreneurship culture Nomura has developed throughout the years. I am interested in pursuing a Spring Intern position at Nomura and I see this opportunity as a means to experience the very international roots of your bank.

I have previously completed a rotational internship at (FIRM). Through this experience working on transactions and shadowing the trader’s work, I have developed analytical and teamwork skills, as well as a real interest for sales & trading. I also had the opportunity to have a direct relation with the client’s front, middle and back offices concerning price, brokerage fees and settlement issues.

I would welcome an opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you and learn more about Nomura at your earliest convenience. I can be reached at (NUMBER) or via email at (EMAIL). Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
