Sample cover letter for Internship position at roche



Dear Mr / Ms,

I wish to express my interest to be accepted at the Student Internship in Basel Site Controlling at La Roche. I am very familiar with the work of La Roche, since, the company is one of the world´s leader pharmaceutical companies, being the global leader in Cancer treatments. Besides that, La Roche is also a well-diversified company providing not only oncology products but rather a great range of products, which helps the company to achieve its sustainable growth and shows the flagship of the company, innovation. La Roche is also recognized by many sources as Forbes as one of the best places to work. It offers great work environment, where employees have access to great benefits and can balance their work life working out on the site or having the possibility to work at home.

My passion about finance, besides my strong analytical aptitude and strong excel and VBA knowledge, enabled me to work as a junior consultant providing financial consultancy for a great variety of customers. It also helped me to take, afterwards, a position as a Finance and HR Trainee in one big multinational pharmaceutical company, where I had the opportunity to work within Finance and HR department simultaneously and experience the linkages between both, to deal with international and national stakeholders and participate in one international project. It also enabled me to experience how great is the opportunity to work and put every effort to save patient´s life.

Moreover, my strong desire and passion about finance sector made me moving abroad to specialize in Corporate Finance and acquire my master degree in one of the European countries recognized by Top education. Thus, the passion about finance and controlling, the experience of working under deadlines and pressure in a multinational, the strong desire to constantly learn, the taste for challenges and, most important of all, the desire to save life make me the right person for the Student Internship in Basel Site Controlling at La Roche.

I lookforward to hearing from you

Kind Regards,
