Dear Ms. Peabody:

My academic and previous work and internship experience make me the perfect candidate for Merrill Lynch’s Summer Analyst Program. Mary Smith, Merrill Lynch’s Senior Analyst, recommended that I write you in regards to the position in hopes that I can apply and interview with you prior to the October 31st deadline.

In the internship posting it listed strong analytical, leadership and quantitative skills. Through my business, finance, and economic courses I have developed strong skills in these areas and look forward to the opportunity to further develop my skills through a challenging and rigorous internship experience. My previous experience in the financial field includes an internship as a analyst with Smith Barney as well as working for the credit union for the past two years at my college. In addition to my knowledge and skills in the area of finance, I have been commended by my professors and previous supervisors as to my strong verbal and written communication skills.
