Sample cover letter for Internship position at Deloitte
Summer Audit Internship
My Name is [name], a junior at the University of California, Berkeley and I would like to be considered for a summer audit internship position in the San Francisco office.
I am interested in a summer audit internship position because I believe that it would provide me with valuable knowledge and hands-on experience in the audit practice. After learning about the audit services from various professionals, it has inspired me to pursue a career in audit because of their ability to work with various clients, learn more about the company and financial situations, which has always been an interest of mine. I also believe that I would be able to work with many students like myself, that are motivated and eager to learn, which would inspire me to work even harder and excel as an intern. I believe that I can contribute to the successes of the other students and mine during this internship through some of my previous experiences. I anticipate that this internship would offer for students an opportunity to attain audit experiences, team-building and networking with business professionals, which would expand my knowledge towards my future career in audit.
Over the summer, I participated in the Deloitte Future Leaders Conference, where I was able to network with many Deloitte professionals and learn more about the services that Deloitte offers. I gained very valuable soft skills and had the opportunity to visit one of the clients. I took away many great tips about networking with professionals and presentation skills that I now use in my daily life. I enjoyed learning more about Deloitte’s services, culture and people, which has provided me with knowledge of a firm that I would certainly like to work for. This conference increased my interest and reassured my decision to go into audit as a future career, especially at Deloitte.
I also work at the University of California, Berkeley Office of Undergraduate Admissions as an administrative assistant. I am a customer service representative, who administers support for customers regarding admissions and other services that the office offers. I lead and manage various projects that range from creating a handbook for the new hires as a reference and creating games for children for a certain event. I gained more leadership skills and knowledge about professional mannerisms that further developed my skills. Both my experiences as a participant and as an assistant are some of the things that I can offer to the internship position.
I attached my resume for your review as well. I hope that we can arrange to speak so that I can discuss at greater length the contribution that I believe I can make to this internship. Should you require an additional information, I can be contacted at the phone number and e-mail listed above.
