A LETTER FOR A SAMPLE FOR PROGRAM OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT

 

Dear Sir/Ma

I am eager to apply to the Information Technology Development Program internship during the summer of 2015. My goals are in line with Johnson and Johnson’s Credo to enhance their lives for its customers and uphold high ethical standards. As an M.S. in Engineering Management student at Dartmouth College I have an extensive background in engineering and operations that could provide me with a strong technology-based support for J&J’s business.

When I review a gadget I break it down into the most important aspects such as viability, usability cost-effectiveness, scalability, maintenance. My background in engineering gives me a well-structured method of problem solving, with a high degree of flexibility and creativity. When I was doing research into cancer, I developed an Excel-based application that used VBA and SQL to automate the maintenance of inventory procedures, which resulted in improved operational efficiency. I’m determined to make a difference in lives in a different direction by exploring the technology that helps the company’s operations.

J&J insists on a multidisciplinary collaboration between departments that are structured, and encourages collaborative work. My accomplishment as Chief Director of the smaller IT recruiting firm was due to my multidisciplinary experience. I incorporated my biomedical expertise to assess candidates for large medical device and pharmaceutical companies and then entered the the biotech industry. This wouldn’t have been possible without the combination of biomedical knowledge and business knowledge.

In Johnson & Johnson, I am able to make the biggest impression on a constantly changing workplace and be exposed to. I would like the chance to further introduce myself and am looking forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

 


SAMPLE COVERLETTER FOR FINANCE

Dear Sir/Ma

My name is ______ and I’d like to share my sincere desire to be an accounting major at the Eller College of Management for the Fall semester of 2015. I’d like to join the Eller group with a major in finance in order that I can grow professionally and have a positive impact on the school as both a scholar and leader, and learn new financial skills. After a thorough self-assessment I am convinced having been involved in different student organizations have helped me build skills which are directly related to the fundamentals that define being an Eller financial student such as the diverse array of decision-making and analytical skills. Furthermore I have a deep desire to develop my public speaking, interviewing and interpersonal skills. I am looking forward to learning from colleagues and professors during my time at Eller.

In my most recent role as the recording secretary of my Sorority Gamma Phi Beta, I was personally responsible to record the attendance of more than 250 women, keeping track of chapter minutes, and preparing the day of recruitment, Day 4, Preference. Through the various positions I held, I’ve learned organizational skills and developed effective communication skills through team-based efforts. As a sales associate at Pretty Please Boutique, I was in charge of balancing various events, customers and deadlines, all while working in a high-energy, fast-paced setting. I gained proficiency with using the Microsoft Office Suite putting together employee schedules, local advertising and a streamlined inventory log. Furthermore, I gained creativeness by creating Eller’s initial website as part of the larger task to help the newly-established business build a lasting relationship with its customers. As I am just beginning the pledge process within Delta Sigma Pi Professional Business Fraternity I’ve already realized the importance of effective time management. This is crucial to success in Eller.

I am convinced that as a finance student at the Eller College of Management I will bring the greatest worth to the University of Arizona. I have proven that I have a strong determination, a fervent determination to learn, as well as excellent communication and finance abilities. If given the opportunity I believe I’ll succeed in the work-oriented culture at the university, as the culture is similar to my current work and goals. I’ve attached my resume for you to review and further outlines my academic and professional accomplishments. Thank for your consideration and time and I am looking forward to getting in touch with you in the near future.

Dear Sir/Ma

In the two years I was in this Accounting & Finance program, I have had the opportunity to increase my knowledge on topics like Accounting, Financial Analysis and Risk Analysis and Modeling. After working in the fashion industry for a number of years, I’ve developed a deep passion for the media industry. I think I am a good fit for the Finance Intern job with NBC Universal would be a ideal fit for me. It could provide me with the opportunity to work with a job that is a combination of two of my passions : media and finance.

Modeling as a model, I was required to swiftly adapt to not only the constantly changing conditions, but to other cultures and teams as well. Being self-employed helped me become confident and motivated. Modeling also provided me with an understanding of the business of media and I think this is a benefit even working with financial information. Over the years, I was adept at recognizing the needs of clients and gained a greater knowledge of what a viewer or viewer would like to be able to see. Additionally, I am certain I’d fit into the team quickly. While working in an Italian restaurant called Pizza Lounge as a bartender and waitress, I developed amazing teamwork and leadership abilities. Receiving orders from customers and having direct contact with them helped me develop the ability to communicate to be successful in a professional setting. I am a committed worker who is able to be under pressure and stay on top of my work by prioritizing tasks according to the importance and amount of time required to complete these tasks. I developed these skills as I juggled full-time studies with a working part-time while keeping a high academic score.

I’m keen for a chance to work with NBC Universal as I admire its creative, innovative and inspiring culture as well as an rounded business. I am impressed with the group’s ability to integrate different businesses and concepts to create a media powerhouse with a common goal to educate, empower and invigorate. Additionally, it will be a great opportunity to interact together and study with the pros employed within the Universal Pictures International department. So, I’m confident I can say that NBC Universal is an excellent job for me to pursue my future.

I appreciate the time you took to look over my qualifications and experiences and I thank you for your attention.

Sincerely,

 


SAMPLE COVERLETTER FOR FINANCE Internship

Dear Sir/Ma

Through the ABC Financial Group’s website I was able to learn about your bank’s current job opportunities. I am keen to secure a spot within ABC Financial’s Global Equity Summer Internship Program.

My current year is in second at the Smith Business School of the State University and am focusing in accounting, finance as well as real estate. This summer I finished an internship at First National Bank, and I am currently working with the university’s Student Federal Credit Union. The experience has provided me with a thorough understanding of financial institutions and increased my enthusiasm for pursuing an investment banking career. I believe that an internship at ABC Financial Group would be the next step to take towards my growth as an investment banking professional.

My primary motivation to join ABC Financial Group stems from its impressive standing. The esteem of the company is best reflected in its recent recognition as “America’s Most Trusted Corporation” for the second time in a row. I believe that the company’s diverse customer base, substantial market capitalization as well as its well-established summer intern program will provide me with an unforgettable experience that would enhance the studies I am taking through Business School. I believe I’ll thrive in the firm’s dynamic and stimulating environment. I believe that my skills, dedication and drive could make me a valuable contribution to your company.

I’d prefer to be working in global equity, however, I am prepared to take any job you may offer me. Thank you for considering me and I look forward to chatting with you in the near future.
