Sample cover letter for Internship position at SGCIB
Dear Mr. Crowley:
Two of your former interns, Brian Hodges and Martha Smith, suggested I contact you regarding finance internship opportunities. They are familiar with my background and felt I would be an excellent match for your summer internship program.
Currently a junior majoring in finance at UNT, I have demonstrated strong academic performance in all finance courses, maintaining a 3.5 GPA in my major. The courses I have completed have given me a solid foundation in the tools, processes and methodologies involved in the successful analysis and management of portfolio-investment strategies. I have a proven ability to learn challenging concepts quickly and have developed competencies in diverse areas, including:
Pro forma analysis
modeling and asset valuation
Portfolio and asset management
Insurance plans and mutual funds
Retirement and estate planning
Tax planning and investment strategies
addition to my analytical strengths, I bring to the table advanced computer
skills (with cross-platform exerptise in Windows and Mac); expertise in the MS
Office suite of products; and familiarity with programming languages including
SQL, HTML and VB.
Since starting college, I have worked part-time (summers/holidays/evenings) as a clerk at Wal-Mart. In this position, I have earned a reputation for consistently exceeding company and customer expectations. Wal-Mart's store manager has asked me to return this summer, but I yearn to gain corporate finance experience. I am impressed by Acme's innovation and success, and I would very much like to be part of such a winning company.
The enclosed resume provides more details of my skills and achievement track record. If you agree that I would make a valuable addition to your team, please feel free to call me at (555) 555-5555 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I know you are busy, so thank you for your time, and I look forward to speaking with you.
