POSITION:

finance intern

Dear Hiring Manager

The position of summer finance internship posted on your website on () is of great interest to me. My exceptional academic background coupled with my international business experience and analytical skills will allow me to excel in this position.

I am currently a senior enrolled at the University of () and am a candidate to graduate suma cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance with a minor in Mathematics in May 2014. During my education at UMD I was taught how to apply and understand finance and accounting principles and concepts. During this time I relied heavily on Microsoft Excel to help me problem solve and model various events.

In the spring of 2012 I studied international finance in (), during this time I sharpened both my interpersonal communication skills and my knowledge of international business as a whole. After the semester ended I spent the remaining month of the summer in () creating an online marketing and sales campaign for my family’s hotel business. To date the online presence has increased business by over 10%.

Throughout my education at () I was also heavily involved with on-campus activities and was part of many clubs and organizations. As the vice president of the investment club and head finance tutor I improved upon my communication, leadership, and organizational skills and learned how to prioritize and perform multiple tasks at once. Additionally I volunteered in the ()program, a free tax preparation service for low income and elderly individuals. This experience was extremely fulfilling and taught me the skills needed to prepare individual tax returns and exposed me to other accounting software technology and helped to improve my interpersonal skills.

I am eager to discuss with you the kind of contributions I can make to Raytheon as a finance intern. Feel free to contact me at() Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
