Sample cover letter for Internship position at Rothschild
My name is --------- and I am a first-year student in the --------------------------. I was recently introduced to your firm via your website and was impressed with what I learned of your culture. In particular, I like your international perspective: an unparalleled network of global knowledge with approximately 900 advisers in 40 countries around the world, developed in more than 200 years. I am interested in attending the Spring Insight Programme, and have enclosed my resume and background information below.
I am currently working at -------------, a promising Italian startup, in the Marketing and Business Development division. Through this experience working on different tasks, I am gaining versatility and honing my teamwork skills. I also have the opportunity to work with entrepreneurs and innovators, who have a different mentality and appetite for risk than most of the people, and also they look at problems from a different standpoint and create innovative solutions.
Given my background in ---------- and my aforementioned skills, I am a particularly good fit for the Spring Insight Programme. I am impressed by your unrivalled track record of advising clients on mergers and acquisitions, having advised on more deals than any other adviser in your core markets: for instance, advising Rolls-Royce on its €3.6 billion public tender offer for Tognum effected via a JV between Rolls- Royce and Daimler. Therefore, I look forward to joining and thriving within your firm.
I would welcome an opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you and learn more about Rothschild at your earliest convenience. I can be reached at ------------- or via email at -----------. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
