Sample cover letter for Internship position at Accenture
Ms. Barbara Fitzgerald, a recent SUNY Albany graduate, now employed at Accenture, encouraged me to apply for the consulting summer internship position posted on CareerBuilder.
My academic achievements along with my successful work experiences and active co-curricular participation in college clubs and sports have all helped me to develop strong analytical and problem-solving skills and have further developed my ability to work independently as well as a successful member of the team. My ability to work well with others can be attributed to my strong communication and interpersonal skills which have helped me get elected to several leadership positions on campus.
My position as Assistant Loan Officer for SUNY’s Student Credit Union is an excellent example of the level of responsibility that has been handed to me. I started out as an entry-level data entry assistant and was quickly promoted to Assistant Loan Officer due to my ability to get along well with my peers as well as my ability to handle complex problems with minimal assistance. I currently have two students whom I supervise on a daily basis. Our group has been commended on a number of occasions by the Chief Loan Officer of the Credit Union for our ability to work well as a team and for getting our daily work accomplished in record time as well as completing timely reports that are handed over to the Board of Directors each month.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I am excited about this opportunity with Accenture since I recognize that they are a strong leader in the consulting industry. I know Accenture has won numerous awards for its excellent customer service and I know, if selected, I would quickly become a key contributor to the team. I will contact you within one week to ensure that you have received my documents and to answer any questions you might have about my qualifications. I look forward to speaking with you soon and hope that I will be able to secure an interview once we have an opportunity to speak.

Mr. Oren Davidson
New York-Presbyterian Hospital
New York, NY
Dear Mr. Davidson,
I am writing to express my interest in the summer internship position within the Support Services and Patient Centered Care Department at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. I am currently a first year student at the Yale School of Public Health concentrating in Health Management. As part of my program, I have completed core public health courses as well as Accounting, Sourcing and Managing Funds, and Operations at the Yale School of Management.
My goal upon graduation next spring is to secure a fellowship in hospital administration. I believe that a summer internship at New York-Presbyterian will be invaluable in helping me develop a deeper understanding of the complex dynamics that drive the financing and delivery of care in a large academic medical center.
Prior to enrolling in graduate school, I worked for three years as the Director of Meeting Planning for the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. This position provided me with the opportunity to collaborate with doctors, allied health professionals and patients in developing educational programs that raised awareness about PH with the goal of earlier diagnosis, better disease management and improved patient prognosis. My experience in aligning the motivations of various stakeholders and executing projects in high-stress situations has helped me to foster a strong skill set that will translate well in a hospital operations role. I am eager to apply the lessons I’ve learned in project management to improving clinical quality and the patient experience within the hospital delivery system.
I believe that the combination of my academic and professional experiences has provided me with the organizational, interpersonal and analytical skills that will enable me to make a significant contribution to the Support Services and Patient Centered Care Department at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Enclosed please find a copy of my resume, which provides additional information on my background and work experience. Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you.
