Sample cover letter for Internship position at JP Morgan

POSITION:

Corporate Finance Analyst

Application for a 6-month traineeship at JP Morgan

Dear Mister,

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.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. James Crowley
Finance Manager
Acme Inc.
555 W. Applegarth Blvd.
Anytown, TX 75000

Dear Mr. Crowley:

Two of your former interns, Brian Hodges and Martha Smith, suggested I contact you regarding finance internship opportunities. They are familiar with my background and felt I would be an excellent match for your summer internship program.

Currently a junior majoring in finance at UNT, I have demonstrated strong academic performance in all finance courses, maintaining a 3.5 GPA in my major. The courses I have completed have given me a solid foundation in the tools, processes and methodologies involved in the successful analysis and management of portfolio-investment strategies. I have a proven ability to learn challenging concepts quickly and have developed competencies in diverse areas, including:

 

 

  • Industry research/information sourcing
  • Comparative analysis
  • Quantitative analysis
  • Pro forma analysis
  • Cash-flow analysis
  • Financial modeling and asset valuation
  • Portfolio and asset management
  • Insurance plans and mutual funds
  • Retirement and estate planning
  • Tax planning and investment strategies

In addition to my analytical strengths, I bring to the table advanced computer skills (with cross-platform exerptise in Windows and Mac); expertise in the MS Office suite of products; and familiarity with programming languages including SQL, HTML and VB.

Since starting college, I have worked part-time (summers/holidays/evenings) as a clerk at Wal-Mart. In this position, I have earned a reputation for consistently exceeding company and customer expectations. Wal-Mart's store manager has asked me to return this summer, but I yearn to gain corporate finance experience. I am impressed by Acme's innovation and success, and I would very much like to be part of such a winning company.

The enclosed resume provides more details of my skills and achievement track record. If you agree that I would make a valuable addition to your team, please feel free to call me at (555) 555-5555 or email me at pamela@somedomain.com. I know you are busy, so thank you for your time, and I look forward to speaking with you.

Sincerely,



Pamela Jung
