Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Phillip Morris


Corporate Auditors & Senior Corporate Auditors

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to apply for the “Corporate Auditors & Senior Corporate Auditors” position at “Philip Morris International” in the Munich office as advertised on LinkedIn. I am particularly interested in developing my career at “Philip Morris International”, due to its undisputed reputation, continuous development and strong global presence. I have chosen “Philip Morris International” because its commitment to provide its clients with exceptional services is in alignment with the high professional standards and rigor that I demand from myself.

Besides my commitment to academic excellence, I have been determined to focus on the corporate finance sector, by completing an internship at the Corporate Finance department in a German company, Cuponation GmbH. There I assisted the senior staff with financial valuation of major DACH, Nordics, French and Spanish retailer chains operating in the FMCG market in order to discover potential synergies for company’s clients. In addition, I have been responsible for debit note’s distribution, allocation and bookings in the DATEV accounting system. I created a guideline for revenue/debtor’s bookings that have been approved by the MDs and have been adopted by the company. Furthermore, I’ve conducted reconciliation of accounts by collecting and analysing information.

I’m also passionate about tech market investments, as I believe it is a crucial driver of worldwide economic development – I’m satisfying this passion with my own equity portfolio management experience. I have been performing in-depth research within the information security sector, basing it on fundamental value drivers, such as an increased number of high-profile security breaches and continuous increase in global digital service's adoption. So far, my portfolio is up to 79%, and continues to grow in value with P/E ratio of 206. Currently, I’m working on its further diversification, valuating the hedging opportunities in a digital insurance sector.

I tend to thrive and perform best in environments where I can assume responsibilities and build strong relationships, which makes the “Philip Morris International” ambition to grow junior collaborators into tomorrow's leaders a perfect place for me to learn and grow.

I am looking forward to an opportunity to convince you in person of my confidence to be able to contribute meaningfully to your team and create value for your clients.

Yours sincerely,
