Sample cover letter for Internship position at Santander


Technology Operator

Dear Hiring Manager,

I have just applied for the position of the Internship Summer Programme. I am an ambitious, enthusiastic and determined individual. With my strong interest in the finance and banking sector this will not only drive myself but I will learn about the banking sector, key computer systems and project management skills which will in turn help towards my university degree. As a learning individual in this industry I want to further develop my IT and start my banking career into the USA Banking Network, whilst using my strong knowledge that I hold within IT. As stated it requires an individuals who is currently studying a Business or Engineering related course. The degree that I am currently studying meets this criteria as it is heavily mathematics and computer science based. I am truly excited about this opportunity and I hope that I am selected to join one of the top banks in the world on this internship programme.
