Sample cover letter for Internship position at XYZ Investments


I am writing regarding the Broker Trainee position posted on XYZ Investment’s website. In May 2011, I will graduate from Endicott College with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, with a concentration in Finance. I believe my previous work experience in financial services, as well as my strong analytical skills and record of excellent customer service will be assets to XYZ Investments.

While an intern at Morgan Stanley, I used a variety of resources to conduct research in order to provide the Financial Advisor with precise and up to date information on specific companies and mutual funds so that he could keep his clients appraised of their portfolios’ performance. As a teller at Citizen’s Bank, I gained a thorough understanding of the importance of developing relationships with customers. In recognition of processing transactions and resolving concerns accurately and efficiently, in addition to maintaining a friendly and professional demeanor, I was given an award for providing outstanding service to customers.

I am eager to begin my career at XYZ Investments, and believe the combination of the excellent training program offered by your organization, along with my motivation, initiative and skills, will allow me to excel in this position. I will contact you the week of March 11 to follow up on my application and to answer any questions you may have regarding my qualifications. In the meantime, if I can provide you with additional information, please contact me at 978-232-1234 or emailaddress@mail.endicott.edu. Thank you for considering me for the Broker Trainee position.
