Sample cover letter for Internship position at Titan Advisors


Investment Analyst

Dear [name],

I am writing to express my interest in the [job position]. I chose to pursue a career in Investments due to the dynamic and fast paced nature and its direct impact on the organisation.

I am an international student. I am in my penultimate year of my course and is currently looking for a placement. As an international student, I believe that coming from a different perspective may help approach the subject in a creative way – ability to look at problems with fresh eyes. I am certain that my skills in communication, organisation, team working and adaptability which can be evident from my CV (attached) can be of great use to [organisation name].

Whilst much of my knowledge is from the management side of the business world, I have applicable knowledge and understanding of accounting, book keeping, finance and economics – acquired from the A-level equivalent subjects learned in school and also from the various modules I have learned in university as part of my course.

I believe that by applying the theories and techniques I have learned, I can contribute to the [organisation]'s bottom line and also improve my performance and understanding of Investments.

Thank you for taking the time to read my cover letter and CV. I look forward to a response from you in due course.

Kind Regards,

[name of applicant]
