Dear Mr./Ms. LastName

 Through ABC Financial Group's website, I learned about your bank's present career opportunities. I am extremely interested in securing a position in the ABC Financial Group's Global Equity Summer Internship Program.

I am currently in my second year at the Smith Business School of the State University and am concentrating in finance, accounting, and real estate. Over the summer I completed an internship with First National Bank, and am currently interning with the University's Student Federal Credit Union. My experiences have provided me with a detailed knowledge of financial institutions and have enhanced my interest in pursuing a financial career. I feel that an internship with ABC Financial Group would be a logical next step in my development as an investment banker.

My main interest in joining ABC Financial Group stems from its impressive reputation. The prestige of the firm is best captured through its recent decoration as "America's Most Trusted Corporation" for the second consecutive year. I feel the firm's diverse clientele, large market capitalization, and well established summer internship program would provide me with an invaluable experience to complement my studies at Business School. I believe that I would succeed in the firm's exciting and motivated environment and that my strong work ethic, ability, and passion would make me a valuable asset to your firm.

I would prefer to work in global equity, however I am willing to consider any position that you offer me. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to speaking with you in the near future.

Sincerely,

 

Your Signature (Hard Copy Letter)
