Sample cover letter for Internship position at goldman


summer analyst


I am an excellent and curious student, very interested in economical world, particularly in Investment Banking. As a motivated student, who is eager to start in the mergers and acquisitions sector, I was immediately determined to apply for the possibility of doing a summer internship for one of the leading investment banks of the world.

My MSc has been able to offer me a unique combination of theory that was taught by well-distinguished professors and practice 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 helped me in building awareness for strong team values and a natural appetite for victory. Also working with various ethnicity groups, as I did this summer at the Keio University, Tokyo, enables me in using abilities within people presenting different cultures and cooperate efficiently to success.

My main motivation for entering into the investment banking division can be attributed to a will for variety in my career. The vast range of companies and their corresponding industries that an investment banker will come into contact over the course of the career will result in developing a well-rounded working knowledge of the world. Furthermore, I am drawn to the caliber of individuals, who often are at the top of their field, that an investment banker would have the opportunity to personally interact and assist them on closing deals like mergers and acquisitions. These deals could hugely impact the operations of the organization, or even the industry itself, and I am personally excited by the sense of accomplishment that this could bring.

I believe my behavior is very well suited to get a summer job: I am a very hard worker and determined to achieve the objectives I set for myself. I am reliable and this is why I have been elected class representative for many years.

To further acquaint you with the specifics of my background I am enclosing my résumé. I really hope to be selected to participate to your summer internship. I look forward to meet you and discuss my qualifications more in detail at your earliest convenience. I thank you for considering my application and look forward to hearing from you.
