Sample cover letter for Internship position at microsoft



The internship programme at Greenhill & Co interests me greatly because it presents the opportunity to work for an independent investment bank, and being able to meet with and learn from senior professional experts in delivering client assignments.

I believe Greenhill & Co can be differentiated from their competitors in that they are sector specialists rather than generalists, their business strategy is to specialise on advising their clients in financial deals in all major industry sectors. Within banking I am most interested in advisory work, so I find the fact that Greenhill & Co has a focus on this area compelling.

I am an ambitious individual who is keen to learn and develop my skills in my chosen field of delivering quality financial analysis and evaluation to business clients. I thrive on hard work and enjoy the challenge of meeting stretching personal goals and contributing to team objectives and timescales by demonstrating my flexibility and commitment. I have a logical and organised approach and pay great attention to detail and the accuracy of my work. I am an effective written and verbal communicator and would welcome the opportunity to enhance these valuable skills in a fast paced and dynamic environment such as M&A advisory or other work within the financial services sector.

Taking into account the above, the ideal culture which I would relish working in would be one that sets stretching personal and team objectives, whilst supporting its employees and allowing them to develop as a part of a highly experienced and motivated team. Such a business culture would allow me to push myself to learn more and more from colleagues who are experts in their field and genuinely interested in their work’.

Please let me know if you need any further information in regards to this application.

Yours faithfully
