Dear HR Officer,

My name is <redacted> and I’m currently a junior at Dartmouth College pursuing a major in Computer Science and a minor in Economics. I have had the opportunity to attend Credit Suisse’s INSPIRE event in Boston last October and was very impressed with the firm’s strong presence in Asia and its emphasis on learning for incoming analysts. As someone originally from Vietnam, I am interested in the Summer Analyst position for the Investment Banking team in the Singapore office, and have enclosed my information below for your consideration.

I have previously completed a summer internship with Horizon Capital Group, a $200M private equity fund based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. This internship entailed performing financial modeling to value companies and compiling market news to update the Managing Partner and Vice Presidents. My work culminated in an independent project to identify a company for an investment recommendation. In 2 weeks, I looked into 50 Vietnamese companies with market caps of over $80M and finally selected a jewelry company for investment recommendation. I then evaluated the company by building a three-statement operating model and comps analyses considering other leading jewelry companies in Asia and the world.

Despite my previous background in finance, I am well aware that an internship with Credit Suisse will entail a steep learning curve. I greatly enjoyed the investment banking and sales & trading workshops at INSPIRE, and I believe that I have both the drive to succeed and the humility to appreciate and take advantage of the learning opportunities that the job can offer. Given my experience, I believe I am a particularly good fit for your Summer Analyst position. I hope you will find me well qualified for this position and I would like to reiterate my strong interest to discuss my qualifications with you further.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
