Business Analyst

Ms. Cathy Recruiter

McKinsey & Company

10 Park Avenue South

City, State Zip Code

Dear Ms. Recruiter,

Mr. Frank Hurley suggested that I forward my resume to you for consideration. I am a senior at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Isenberg School of Management majoring in Finance with a minor in Economics with a 3.6 GPA. I am currently working as summer intern with Alternative Investments Group.

As Mr. Hurley may have mentioned, I am in the top 5% of my class at Isenberg, and I recently was elected president of Beta Gamma Sigma, National Business Honor Society. In both my academic and extracurricular activities, I have consistently demonstrated my capacity to make a positive impact, regardless of the situation. My analytical and personal skills are ideally suited to management consulting, and I am confident that would be an asset to McKinsey & Company.

I have extensive knowledge of business applications including Excel, Word and Access and have interpreted complex data for several honor classes as well as an independent study on global investment strategies. I believe my strengths in data analysis, analytical problem solving, and communication have prepared me for a successful career in investment banking.

I want to thank you in advance for your time and preference list consideration. You may contact me at

Sample cover letter for Internship position at McKinsey


Fellow Analyst

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am applying for a position as Fellow Analyst, starting in spring 2015. I have an avid interest in management consulting, and as a member of McKinsey Fristhand I have been in touch with McKinsey for over a year now. I believe this opportunity will provide me with an unparalleled learning curve and the best possible experience in consulting.

I will graduate from the XY College with an expected GPA of 3.6 in February. I am pursuing a dual degree. While my business studies coursework has taught me the relevant technical skills, my economics studies have provided me with rigorous analytical skills. I have successfully used and further developed both at a four months M&A internship at XY Bulge Bracket Investment Bank.

As a very ambitious person, I believe that the high paced environment and the bright people at McKinsey will enable me to tap my full potential. Furthermore I am certain that with my strong work ethic and analytical thinking skills alongside my initiative and creativity I will be able to contribute to the firm’s success.

I look forward to the opportunity of being interviewed in order to share more about my experience and skills that I could bring to your company. Pleaso do no hesitate to contact me in case any questions arise. Thank you for your time and consideration.
