Sample Cover Letter For Bank Graduate Trainee
Dear Mitsubishi UFJ Securities Recruitment Team,
I graduated from the University of [university] with an upper second class degree in law in [year]. I would like to apply for a graduate position with MUSI.
I have decided to pursue a career in the investment banking and securities field because I developed a very strong interest in the financial sector following my employment during which I was closely involved in several banking matters. I feel that a career in the financial sector will provide me with a very stimulating and challenging environment through active involvement in the financial markets and the application of the effective decision-making process with the aim of producing optimal solutions for clients.
The international reach and global outlook of MUSI and affiliate companies within the Group will enable me to develop an understanding of individual client requirements and expose me to interesting and challenging cross-border work. I find MUSI’s prestigious and high-profile client base very attractive since this will add variety to my workload and allow me to think creatively in order to produce innovative and tailored solutions that will generate attractive returns to clients. I strongly feel that the entrepreneurial culture at MUSI will allow me to thrive intellectually and allow me to contribute my perspectives and ideas in order to add value to my work and achieve effective and innovative solutions for clients. I find MUSI’s corporate structure very appealing because it will allow me to form working relationships with other professionals and share expertise which will aid my development and allow me to make a contribution across different levels of the corporate structure.
I believe that my range of skills and experiences make me a strong candidate for a graduate position at MUSI. I am a very enthusiastic, commercially aware and confident which will allow me to deal with new challenges and align all my work to individual client requirements. At [law firm], I accompanied a group of shareholders to a board of directors extraordinary general meeting of a natural resources company in Amsterdam. During the meeting, I played a very proactive role and demonstrated very good knowledge of the client’s business and the natural resources sector and identified the main problem areas, all of which helped the solicitors to devise an effective and timely solution for the client.
I possess strong teamwork, communication and analytical skills which will enable me to work seamlessly in diverse teams to discuss and develop ideas into successful solutions for clients. At [law firm] , I assisted the solicitors with the preparation of an initial public offering prospectus for a luxury brand in the fashion industry. During the negotiations with associates and other stakeholders, I contributed my perspectives based on my knowledge of the matter and helped to develop ideas raised by others. I always communicated my ideas across succinctly and convincingly.
I am entrepreneurial, enthusiastic and well organised which will enable me to deal with challenging situations professionally and effectively. In [year], I pioneered the University of [university] Amateur [sport] Club for the first time in fifty years by developing and implementing a successful strategy to persuade the Sports Committee to grant permission for a new [sport] club.
I believe that my linguistic abilities as well as my cultural empathy will allow me to thrive in an international environment and serve as a valuable contribution towards the firm’s objectives and growth.
I thank you for your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
