Sample cover letter for Internship position at Nomura

Joe Dane

HR Head



Dear Ms Joe Dane

In my current role at my company, I advise senior leaders on corporate transactions. My company has undergone phenomenal growth, selling one of our divisions to a competitor for $3 B and buying various assets and taking over other smaller companies. I prepare the sale and buy value of the assets. My guidance to senior leaders was crucial to closing the deals in our favour. I am very interested in understanding the basics for corporate decisions at the top level. My long-term aspiration is to work with the M&A division of a leading bank to create an impact on the industry and society.

Quantitative analysis has always been my strength and pursuing a career in engineering was natural. I am thrilled by the impact I could create as a banker and it’s not only challenging but also rewarding at the same time. The natural transition for me from my current role would be to move to a corporate finance role within my current organization.

Many of my friends from my university are working with leading financial institutions. From them, I have gained insights about the industry, the challenges and the impact of their work. My network is not only an inspiration but will also be beneficial to me while seeking opportunities in the sector. This baking trek will provide me with further networking opportunities.

A copy of my resume is enclosed for your reference. I would welcome an opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you and learn more about Nomura at your earliest convenience. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
