Example Cover Letter

November 16, 2004
Mr. Pierce F. Smith
Merrill Lynch Investment Banking
250 Vesey Street, 31st Floor
New York, NY 10281

Dear Mr. Smith:

I am leveraging my academic experience, communication skills, and energy to pursue a career in investment banking. I attended Merrill Lynch's presentation on campus on September 17 at Sacred Heart University and since that time have conducted additional research into the firm and its culture. I believe that Merrill's client-focused and team-oriented environment is one for which I would be well suited. For these reasons, I am writing to request an interview for an internship position in investment banking.

For the last three years I have worked as an financial services intern at American Express. I thrived in that climate because of my ability to adapt quickly to changing environments and to build relationships with a sophisticated international and domestic clientele. My success hinged upon my ability to assume short and long term responsibilities and to contribute to my team's effective solutions for client's' complex litigation issues.

At Sacred Heart, I am taking an intensive course load in accounting and finance and participating in the Finance Club. Combining my experience in a demanding entrepreneurial environment with rigorous coursework in finance and accounting will enable me to make an impact as a Summer Intern. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to interview with you. Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sam Smith
