Sample cover letter for Internship position at bdg



Having graduated with annual Scholarships in Economics from Northeast Agricultural University, I am currently studying an MSc in Finance at the University of Bath, School of Management. I believe my academic background and previous finance and research experience would allow me to add value to the team.

I am particularly attracted to Citi investment banking full time analyst program after attending several career events last year. I was impressed by your emphasis on partnership culture and diversity and feel this would be an environment in which I would quickly add value to the team and your clients. Your frequent accolades as an industry leaderand as an Employer of Choice (eg. Times Top 100 Graduate Employers) strengthened my motivation to apply to you.

Evidence of my interest in business can be seen from my participation inICBC CHALLENGE, successfully managed a virtual trading portfolio (currently up 15% from 2013) and I participated in the Events of the Bath Finance Society. I am really into financial service research and although I haven’t done work in this field before, I really want to pursue it as my career path. Whilst working as a Pricing Analyst at INDUSTRIAL SECURITY, I used statistical techniques Stata, Eviews and Excel to analyse and interpret financial data and make recommendations on pricing content. This required strong analytical and problem-solving skills. In this role I particularly enjoyed understanding how macroeconomic trends, such as the economic slowdown in China, had a dramatic impact on the pricing content we prepared for tenders globally. I developed strong communication skills when liaising with engineers internally and customers externally, and enhanced my IT skills when maintaining the customer database. I gained experience of managing a project from conceptualization to implementation when introducing e-commerce functionality to my family business, which improved profitability by 20% in 3 months.
