Sample cover letter for Internship position at black rock



Dear Sir/Madam,

I am currentlya second year Student at L’Ecole Polytechnique. As a motivated student who is eager to start in the derivative sector, I was immediately determined to apply for the possibility to do a summer internship for your firm.

Exactly these values attract me to Morgan Stanley.

I have previously [Completed Internships In… / Worked Full-Time In…]. Through this experience [Working on Transactions / Leading Teams and Managing Projects / Performing Quantitative Analysis], I have gained [Go Into Anything Relevant to Banking, Such As Analytical / Leadership / Teamwork / Finance / Accounting] skills and honed my [Any Other Relevant Skills]. I also had the opportunity to work on [High-Impact Project], which [Describe Results].

Given my background in [Summarize Internships / Work Experience] and my [Summarize Skills] skills, I am a particularly good fit for the [Position Name] position at your firm. I am impressed by your track record of [Transactions / Clients] at [Firm Name] and the significant responsibilities given to [Position Name], and I look forward to joining and contributing to your firm.

After completing my Bachelor I gained my first experience in financial market during an internship last summer.

I had the opportunity to have insight at the whole M&A process and gained a deeper understanding of the valuation theory. This work experience not only taught me how to deal with deadlines and clients, but also pushed me to deliver a high level of quality in everything I do. During my time at the Nike EMEA headquarters I had the opportunity to witness an acquisition from close by and discover all the complexities that come along with it. I gained first hand experience with the synergies that can arise, as well as the organisational problems. Furthermore, the MSc in Corporate Finance at the Cass Business School was able to offer me a unique combination of theory that was taught by well-distinguished professors and practise from professionals. Besides my academic career, I am convinced that my active membership of a student society and my experience in a broad range of sports created awareness for strong team values and a natural appetite for victory.

I believe both my background and my skills have equipped me to be effective in your firm. I would welcome the opportunity to interview. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
