Dear Sir/Madam,

As a student in the third year of the “Business School” Master’s in Finance program, I’m looking forward to pursuing my career in the field of Corporate Finance. It is my intention to write to you because I am keen to apply for full-time employment within the international M&A or Leveraged Finance team preferably based in London. I am convinced that working in a top-ranked investment bank like “Company 1” would be an ideal place to make complete use of my skills and knowledge. In my gap year, I was able to complete a six-month work experience in the “Company 2” BIEN M&A Department (French MidCap and Emerging Markets) in Paris. During the internship I was involved in pitching preparations and also in conducting two deals that involved food, one in the sector, and the second in the media/music sector (please check my CV).

Being able to work effectively in conjunction with team members from the M&A team, potential buyers and their clients helped me to enhance my technical abilities and professional mindset. In fact, I acquired a solid knowledge of complicated financial models like cash flow model and leveraged buyout models and I honed my endurance and my resiliency to pressured situations. I was able to meet the highest expectations of my colleagues.

Prior to this job I was employed for about six months in the capacity of a trainee Junior Auditor for “Company 3” in Paris. Through various missions of auditing of the statement of accounts I was able to significantly expand my skills in accounting analysis in addition to my efficiency and rigor in tackling short deadlines and tackling the issues I had to deal with. Alongside these work experiences and my academic background – “Business School’s” Master’s Degree in Finance – enables me to further develop and expand my technical expertise of Corporate as well as Investment Banking. Therefore, I would like to gain more about this department. M&A and Leveraged Finance Department at “Company 1”. A full-time job could be an excellent chance for me to get more involvement and accountability over time in an extremely stimulating and challenging work environment.

I am interested and eager to learn, and I am convinced that because of my abilities and enthusiasm I am able to contribute significantly to your organization. I thank you for taking a look at my application. I’d be more than happy to discuss my experiences and motives during an interview. I look to hear from you shortly, yours always faithfully,

Sincerely, XYZ
