Sample cover letter for Internship position at Thomson Reuters


Business Analyst

My name is ABC and I am currently a junior at ABC University double majoring in computer science and mathematics. When I was a freshman, a good friend of mine who was a senior at that time and now works at Barclays told me about his experience as a summer analyst, and I was deeply impressed by your values and focus on interns. I am interested in pursuing an investment banking analyst position through ABC at your firm, and have enclosed my background information below.

I have previously completed internship at ABC. Through this experience, I have honed my analytic skills and gained considerable experience self-learning and working in a team.

Combining them with my analytic and teamwork skills, I am a particularly good fit for the investment banking summer analyst position at your firm. I look forward to joining and contributing to your firm.

I would welcome an opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you and learn more about Barclays at your earliest convenience. I can be reached at XXX or via email at ABC. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
