Sample cover letter for Internship position at Royal Bank of Scotland


Summer Analyst

Dear Recruiting Coordinator,

I am currently a Junior studying Economics, Business, and Statistics at the University of Michigan, where I have acquired and fine-tuned valuable skills such as analyzing difficult problems, articulating my opinions effectively, and succeeding in extremely competitive environments. Please consider me for a summer internship, where I can put into practice all of the skills gained through my academic and extracurricular activities here at Michigan.

While at Michigan I have taken classes such as Introduction to Quantitative Research Methods, which have given me a considerable amount of knowledge on the interplay between research designs, models, and the credibility of empirical research. This class utilizes a statistical programming language called R that I have had to quickly learn while analyzing data and conducting research. This strong analytical thinking is an example of a quality I will bring to RBS. Along with being a full time student at Michigan, I am a member of the University Cheerleading team and also currently working 20 hours a week, exhibiting my extraordinary time management, comfortableness in fast-paced environments, and multitasking abilities. Through attention to detail and strong communication skills, my cheer team and I have won the National Championship both the previous two years. My initiative to succeed and focus on exceeding all of my goals in order to ensure a flawless presentation has assisted me in winning at such an elite level. These are just a few of the qualities I will use to help make a difference in your organization.

My background, self-motivated enthusiasm, and strong interest in the financial markets make me a good fit to work for Royal Bank of Scotland as a Summer Analyst. To demonstrate this in more detail, I have attached a copy of my resume for your review. You can reach me by my cell phone number or email address. Thank you for your consideration.
