Sample cover letter for Internship position at NYU


Finance Assistant

Dear ABC

I am writing to apply for the  Finance and Program Assistant position in your organization. As a XYZ, I am eager to get hand-on experience of nonprofit management in the real world. Your Program just aligned with my passion for empowering the vulnerable group- women and reminded me of my experience that developed and promoted leadership skills for Sri Lanka youth in college.

I possess highly relevant experience at Deloitte as an audit intern. Through my role, I reconciled financial reports from the client for auditing and finished cut-off testing independently. I am also experienced in the proofreading financial statements and following up with vendors, clients, attorneys to verify liabilities when preparing the final audit report, skills that would undoubtedly serve me well to help maintain and process financial documents for your program.

I am very interested in this position. And I believe my capacities would make me a perfect fit for it.I have enclosed my resume for your review.  Look forward to hearing from you soon.
