Sample cover letter for Internship position at Nomura



Dear Sir/Madam, 

I’m writing this letter to express my interest in working as a Risk Analyst with Nomura Services India Private Limited. It is a widely acknowledged fact that a Team Member position at Nomura Services India would provide any fresh graduate with a top-notch insight into the world of banking. It would also be a great opportunity for me to learn from some of the best in the field of banking and to hone my problem-solving skills and creativity. The position of a risk analyst would provide me an exposure to sales, origination, trading, marketing, financial services and private banking, specializing in credit, market, operational or regulatory sector. This position is the perfect opportunity to start my career because of the multi dimensional exposure attached to it.

I believe my qualifications make me a strong candidate for the position. Courses like Operations Research and Operations Management has made me adept in documentation, analysis, and reporting. Fortunately, at XXX, I’ve had the opportunity to work in numerous groups with different kinds of people including leading a hundred-member team of iPals (International Peer Advising Leaders) 2014, that has inculcated a strong sense of responsibility and teamwork. I was also able to develop an excellent communication skill-set in this process. I believe all these abilities that I've developed over the past few years have helped me become a perfect candidate for this position, where leadership, team-work, communication and problem-solving are the essential requisites. As a Team Member at Nomura Services, I strongly believe that I would add value with my analytical skills and my ability to stay determined and dedicated over long periods of extreme pressure as demonstrated during my life at XXX. Thank you for your time and consideration. 

Yours sincerely,
