Dear Sir or Madam,
My name is [Name Redacted] and I would like to be considered for the Investment Banking Spring Program at Goldman Sachs. I am currently a first-year Business & Economics student at the Stockholm School of Economics and I have previously studied one year of mathematics and mathematical statistics at Stockholm University.
My interest for finance sparked when I three years ago joined [name of a shareholders’ association for young people]. The association has not only taught me about finance but also developed my teamwork and leadership skills. The association also led me to believe a career in investment banking could suit me well, which I feel was confirmed when I worked as a part-time analyst at the global M&A advisory firm [company name]. What I enjoy about M&A is the team environment and the possibility to gain in-depth knowledge about specific companies.
I am motivated by the opportunity to eventually also gain industry expertise. The financial sector is especially interesting to me and I am aware that Goldman Sachs has a very strong Financial Institutions Group, hence my strong interest in Goldman Sachs. In addition to that, [First name Last name] and the other representatives were all truly helpful when I met them at the Goldman Sachs event at the Stockholm School of Economics. Goldman Sachs seems to offer the team environment where I would be able to thrive.
Given my background in finance and sales, I am a particularly suitable candidate for Goldman Sachs Spring Internship. I believe that my experiences show my dedication, strong communicative skills and interest in finance, while my analytical skill is shown by my excellent academic performance.
I am available any dates and I can be reached at [phone number] or via email at [email address]. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
