Sample cover letter for Full Time position at New York Federal Reserve


Bank Examiner

Donna Mastroianni

Graduate Recruiter

New York Federal Reserve Bank

33 Maiden Lane

New York, NY 10001

Dear Ms. Mastroianni:

I am a second-year graduate student at the University of Michigan School of Public Policy,

concentrating in international trade and economic policy. I recently attended your presentation in Ann

Arbor, and I enjoyed hearing the first-hand account of activities at the Federal Reserve Bank of New

York. Your presentation highlighted the dynamic environment of the Bank and further fueled my

interest in pursuing full-time employment. Additionally, I learned of the many opportunities in the

Bank Supervision Group and wish to be considered for the Bank Examiner position within the

Financial Examinations Department.

This past summer I worked for two agencies in the Executive Office of the President conducting

research, providing analysis, and making recommendations on courses of action responsive to agency

needs and goals. Specifically, I worked with the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to forward the

Administration’s policy objectives for increasing trade flows with Sub-Saharan Africa. At the Office of

Management and Budget, I performed budget analysis to determine possible funding allocations for a

federal health agency. Prior to attending graduate school, I also worked in a variety of capacities

where analytic skills were applied to making assessments and offering solutions to problems,

including positions with a law firm and with non-profit associations.

I am very enthusiastic about employment possibilities with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and

hope to apply my professional experiences to the exciting work of the Bank. Namely, I hope to bring

analytical, communication, leadership, and computer skills to bear as an Examiner with the Bank

Supervision Group. As such, I have enclosed a resume for your review and look forward to hearing

from you soon.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
