Sample cover letter for Internship position at Oliver Wyman


consulting Group

Dear Recruiting Manager,



I am writing to apply the vacancy for Singapore - Entry-Level Consultant - Core Consultant Group.

I am currently a student from Warwick Business School, University of Warwick (WBS) in UK pursing a Master of Science degree in Business consulting. I will formally graduate in January 2017, but now I have already finished all modules required by the university except the dissertation. (It is not necessary for me to come back to UK because the dissertation could be finished and submitted by email).

I applied the Work Holiday Pass to Singapore and I am eligible to work here until 21st June 2016. I could start to work as soon as possible.

Oliver Wyman ranks #9 of Best Consulting Firms for Financial Consulting in 2016 Vault rankings. And Oliver Wyman has been named to the 2015 list of Top Employers for Working Families by United Kingdom charity Working Families. I am hoping to begin my career in Accenture. This vacancy comprises of exciting rotations, which will equip me with the essential skills and knowledge to develop into a competent, world-class consultant.

My multi-disciplinary academic background (Accounting and Consulting), alongside my internship and project experiences, has given me the capabilities and experience to perform to a high standard in this role. And I am proficient in standard office software, especially Excel (I got an Excel Certificate from Liverpool management school) and PowerPoint (I finished lots of presentation in my universities with good mark).

I think I have already mastered other skills and capabilities that help me stand out from other candidates:

  • A proactive team player (consulting team member and innovative project team leader);
  • Interpersonal skills, Time management abilities and work under pressure (interacting with clients ranging from unit of city council, charity, foreign workers, to small and medium enterprises);
  • Sound problem solving and representing skills (presenting proposals).

This role is a great opportunity for me to learn from the smart people in Oliver Wyman and play my specialty to contribute to the company.

Please see enclosed copies of my Resume and transcripts.

I look forward to your favorable reply.

Yours faithfully
