Dear Ms. Grant,
Now that I have earned my Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of California, New Parkland, I am looking to start my professional career by applying for the Assistant Financial Analyst position that’s currently listed on your website. The attached resume details my academic experience and qualifications.
In addition to my classroom achievements, I completed two successful internships with Oceanside Financial Services and Sound Investments. I gained firsthand experience with a variety of administrative tasks and had the opportunity to sit in on a few staff meetings. I also have a firm understanding of the importance of confidentiality and nurturing productive client relationships.
I am an enthusiastic go-getter with a true passion for work in the finance industry. After some careful research and consideration, I feel that New Parkland Fidelity is the right place for me. As your new Assistant Financial Analyst, I will work hard, apply the skills I’ve acquired and quickly grasp new concepts.
With my strong analytical skills and comprehensive communications abilities, I anticipate being a reliable, contributing member of your team through this rewarding entry-level position. Thank you for your time and consideration. I hope to schedule an interview with you in the near future.
Sample cover letter for Internship position at JP Morgan
Corporate Finance Analyst
Application for a 6-month traineeship at JP Morgan
I am currently pursuing my penultimate year studies at X, willing to graduate with a Master in Management, Chartered Finance Analyst Major in 2017, and I am looking for a 6-month long internship on September 2015 to start my gap year. My finance courses and my interactions with professionals confirmed my determination to have a very challenging and stimulating experience within a leading European investment bank, especially in your corporate finance team.
What attracts me to JP Morgan is the worldwide presence and diversity of the organization. I believe that the diversity of its employees and customers represents a great opportunity to be enriched by interacting with people from different backgrounds. An emphasis put on professional development through training and a culture that rewards creative and able individuals also distinguishes JP Morgan. The combination of the above creates an environment where a highly motivated individual can make a positive impact early on. Finally, company’s successful track record and rich heritage would undoubtedly make me feel proud as a “team member”.
Furthermore, the former work experience I obtained in X. the investment bank of X Group provided me with excellent analysis and synthesis skills. This experience represented a great opportunity to improve my knowledge in financial analysis with particular focus on mergers & acquisitions, equity capital markets and debt capital markets. I developed the required sense of commitment to work in Finance as well as substantial qualities to work with others and under pressure.
I would like the opportunity to discuss with you any internship opportunities you might have. Thank you for your time in reviewing my resume and I look forward to hearing from you.
