Sample cover letter for Internship position at financial company


Company Secretarial Assistant

Dear Human Resources Manager

Company Secretarial Assistant

I am very interested in the above post as advertised on JobsDB on 24 January 2014.

Being patient and attentive to details, I believe I am qualified for the position listed


I am a fresh graduate of the University of Hong Kong. I am proficient in spoken and

written English, Mandarin and Cantonese.

I have joined a HSBC Programme called the Company Program in which my team was

offered a chance to operate a virtual company from incorporation to deformation. I was

the secretary of the company where I have to handle loads of paper works for records

and for satisfying the company’s regulations. I was able to polish my administrative

skills and gain the opportunity to take part in secretarial affairs. The duties are

challenging as I would be responsible for all the documents announced.

After the programme, I enrolled in Associate of Arts in Legal Studies to take a further

glimpse of the field. I therefore gain much more legal knowledge which I believe would

be beneficial to my future secretarial career.

Upon graduation, I expect to see myself working as a secretary in a sizable company. I

am confident that with the valuable experience I gain in your company, I would be able

to pursue the company secretary qualifications within the next five years.

Enclosed please find my resume for your reference. Feel free to contact me if you would

like to set up an interview. I am available for interview at most times. I can be contacted

most easily on the mobile phone number given above. I look forward to meeting you.
