Category: FINANCE Cover Letter


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.

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.

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.
