Dear Hiring Manager,
My name is <Redacted> and I graduated from University of London, Banking & Finance with a First Class Honours. I am going to read Msc Finance & Private Equity at London School of Economics in 2016 and will be taking CFA level 1 this coming December. I am extremely interested in pursuing an internship with Deloitte, and have enclosed my resume and background information below.
I had previously completed summer internships at Duff & Phelps and OCBC Bank. At Duff & Phelps, I worked under the valuation team and my main duties were to calculate the cost of capital for the purpose of discounted cashflow analysis, comparable analysis, data extraction, industry research, companies screening and building up pitchbooks. My experience at Duff & Phelps had honed my technical knowledge and financial modelling skills substantially and I am confident to hit the road as soon as the internship starts.
Last summer, I was awarded with a scholarship based on outstanding academic achievements to London School of Economics summer abroad programme. I took up the course called Advanced Corporate Finance. The analytical and quantitative skills gained from this vigorous course, has prepared me well for any upcoming challenges in the field of corporate finance. Also I wrote an article recounting on my personal experiences at LSE and it was featured on the University of London’s website.
One of the main reasons for choosing the internship program is the fact that it is exciting yet challenging with a steep learning curve. It provides ample opportunities for me to develop new skills and enhance those I already had. I am willing to commit and do up pitch books, financial modelling, business reports and due diligence. The challenges and dynamism of working in Deloitte are appealing to me as Deloitte can provide me with a learning platform where I can explore my talent, hone my knowledge and skills and an opportunity to be challenge with greater responsibilities.
I am confident that I can make an immediate positive contribution Deloitte and would welcome an opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you. Thank you for your time and consideration. Should you require any further information I can be contact at the number <Redacted> or email address <Redacted>.
