Sample cover letter for Internship position at goldman


summer analyst

I am writing in order to apply for the position of Investment Banking Summer Analyst that was presented to me at the "Bocconi & Jobs" meeting and on your web site. I am a first year master student currently enrolled in the Master of Science of Accounting, Finance and Controlling (AFC), graduating in 2016.

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.

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.
