Melissa Stevens

Recruiting Coordinator

5215 North O’Connor Blvd., Suite 500

Irving, TX 75039

Dear Ms. Stevens:

I am applying for the Associate Consultant position with Bain & Company. As a senior at

Vanderbilt University majoring in Economics with a minor in managerial studies, I know

that I would be an ideal candidate for this position. My studies in economics have

provided me with the knowledge to apply my business and analytical skills to different

business scenarios. I have an avid interest in the management consulting industry, and I

believe that the Associate Consultant position with Bain & Company will provide me with

unparalleled experience in business strategy.

My experience with Accelerator, Vanderbilt’s Summer Business Institute, inspired my

enthusiasm for consulting, as well as granted me experience in applying my knowledge

by collaborating in teams. During the Accelerator program, I led a team of four on the

marketing initiatives for a global campaign for Yum! Brands. The team presented our

marketing plan to Yum! Brands representatives and was selected as the winners of the

competition to have it implemented throughout the corporation.

As I continue to strive for academic success, I enjoy working on teams and have had

significant experience through my extracurricular activities where I hold several

leadership positions. Currently, I serve as the Vice President for Interhall, the Student

Dormitory Government. I plan community events and fundraisers for the organization

which include Save the Children, Juvenile Diabetes Bike-a-Thon, and tutoring local

youth in math and reading. I’m also the Assistant Treasurer for Delta Gamma Sorority. I

created a more efficient process for the organization to maintain financial records for a

$50,000 yearly budget. I feel my strong work

ethic and analytical, creative mind would

equip me to contribute meaningfully to Bain & Associates as an Associate Consultant.

I would like the opportunity to meet in per

son to share more about my background and

the skills I would bring to your company. If you need any additional information, please

contact me at (


) or phone (615) 123-4567. I look

forward to the opportunity to interview with Bain & Associates. Thank you for your



Jennifer Consultant
