Sample cover letter for Internship position at Oclaner Asset Management


Business Analyst

April 16th, 2015

Dear Mr. Bartolintti,

I am a sophomore majoring in Economics at Boston University and would like to join your office in Singapore asan investment analyst intern this coming summer. I am impressed by how diverse yet personal the services offered at Oclaner are. That is why I am excited to apply. I believe I can contribute to your projects my experiences drawn from my international background along with my sensible diligence and results-driven mentality.

I became interested in finance after my father asked me to manage his and my mother’s retirement investments. I didn’t do so well; however to cultivate that interest and improve, I competed in investment competitions and enrolled myself in finance classes normally taken by MBA students. I have also taken it upon myself to learn more about accounting and valuation techniques in my own spare time. 

I am fully committed to meeting all of the high expectations of your firm. Whether it will be reviewing documents, making spreadsheet models, or running little errands around the office. I guarantee every single step will be properly handled. I would sincerely appreciate the chance to be interviewed and would like to share more with you my motivations, capabilities to demonstrate why I will be a good fit for your team.
