Deustche Bank Spring Week Cover Letter

Dear Sir or Madam,


My name is <Name redacted> and I am a first-year student at the University of Bath, currently studying for a Bsc (Hons) in Economics. I was directed to this opportunity through a previous participant in your spring week insight program – through whom I learnt a vast amount about the week, particularly the fact that it offers a broad insight into the world of Corporate and Investment Banking, and in particular the innovative and resilient culture of Deutsche Bank. Henceforth, I am interested in participating in your Spring into Banking program so that I can fully experience the culture and breadth of the opportunity offered by Deutsche Bank.


I have previously taken part in a week of work experience at Northern Trust, where I was able to shadow a range of employees (ranging from Senior Executives to Vice Presidents) within the front, middle and back office. Additionally, I took part in an insight event at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch in which I networked with middle and back office employees and executives. Through this experience, I was able to gain valuable insight into areas where my skills are best suited, however, I have not been able to experience the breadth of jobs on offer at a bank such as Deutsche Bank, in particular, exposure to the Investment Banking Division. I believe that the Spring into Banking Programme will provide the best foundation for me to make a successful application for your summer internship program and subsequently a prosperous career in banking.


My initial interest in participating in the Deutsche Bank Spring into Banking week stems from the glowing recommendation given by a former participant, who is now a front office analyst at a large Investment Bank. Additionally, the resilience that Deutsche Bank has shown in tough economic times, raising pre-tax profits by €56 million euros (Q2 2017) compared to 2021 in a relatively stagnant economic environment, is admirable and really demonstrates a go-getting, success-driven culture, one that I would very much like to be a part of.


I consider myself to be a very accomplished communicator, having undertaken primary client-facing roles in all of my jobs, extracurricular and entrepreneurial endeavours. I am supported by strong presentational and leadership skills, demonstrated by my leadership of my Sixth Form’s Target 2.0 team whilst I also have experience in collaborating in an international team, all skills that I believe are transferable to the professional workplace. Having learnt French within the space of a year, after having been placed in a French-speaking school, I have been able to develop many characteristics such as grit, determination and get up and go, all of which are evident from my entrepreneurial endeavours.


Thank you for your time. I would be extremely grateful if you would consider me for a placement on the Deutsche Bank Spring into Banking Programme.
