Sample cover letter for Internship position at asshole



Dear Recruiter,

After carefully researching your business and its growing position within the market, I am writing to outline my keen interest in the Fixed Income Sales & Trading summer internship program at Credit Suisse.

I am extremely commercially acute and a highly motivated person with a natural flair for numbers. Through my previous internship with [Company name] as an Analyst I acquired the ability to work in a very competitive and a highly pressured work environment. Furthermore, I worked with a team of senior Analysts to solve challenging problems such as production loss and accurately forecasted [Conutry's] domestic Oil and Gas demand that helped increase oil production by 10%.

The Sales & Trading summer program appeals to me due to my rigorous academic training and previous work experiences. These have provided me with a very strong background in the mathematical techniques required to successfully synthesise and analyse complex financial data. Whilst working in retail as sales associate I regularly interacted with clients and consistently gave excellent advice on products, which increased sales by 20%. As Credit Suisse aims to focus on client centric strategies I feel confident that my breadth of skills will enable me to contribute to the Sales & Trading team by strengthening its coverage of key clients and offering comprehensive financial solutions.

After Speaking to [employee name] a [Position in the bank] at Credit Suisse I was impressed by your culture and your growing position in the financial industry. I believe the recent transformation in your fixed income portfolio will generate attractive returns and help maintain greater financial stability in the future for Credit Suisse. Therefore I am keen to be part of the summer internship program in Sales & Trading, which will provides an ideal opportunity for me to expand my knowledge of fixed income and allow me to make a very significant contribution to the firm's growth.

Thank you for your consideration and I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours Faithfully
[My Name]
