It gives me so much pleasure to submit to you my application for the position of summer internship you offer.
Financial Services Assurance appeals to me threefold. Firstly, I have always been interested in the financial sector and I feel my personal strengths align with those competency skills for which the nature of the work demands. During my study of law, I particularly enjoyed studying financial services regulations and business law not only because they align with my professional and personal interest, but also because I am excited by the notion of delving into the intricacies of financial organisations. I recognise that as a result of the wide variety of circumstances and projects advisers are exposed to, this position provides an excellent opportunity to learn. Lastly, I am thrilled at the prospect of working with a team of bright, ambitious, like-minded people and clients from a variety of countries and cultures. My language skills would also be helpful provided that I have travelled extensively and worked in various cities including London, Toronto, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Taipei. I enjoy exploring diverse cultures and experiencing how cultural differences transpire in reality. Accordingly, I would relish the challenges that this role presents so as to develop personally and professionally as a consultant.
I am eager to begin a career within EY because I firmly believe my capabilities place me in good stead to thrive at EY. My work experiences within international law firms have allowed me to develop strong research methods and writing skills. I also have research experience in analysing the impact of regulatory changes in businesses. These responsibilities were made easier to manage because of my extensive word processing, spreadsheet, database software and programming skills which I had developed from partaking in extra-curricular courses. Accordingly I believe I also have the appropriate computing skills for this role. I regard my strongest competency skill to be in public speaking and presentation as was affirmed when I won ‘Business and Entrepreneurship Enhancement Programme’ and ‘Harvard China Thinks Big Competition’ with my sales pitch to invest in my team’s social enterprise project. I am both confident and comfortable with problem-solving and consulting as I came to discover in creating proposals for the competitions. My experience as a radio host at Metro Broadcast Corporation Limited, one of three broadcasting companies in Hong Kong, has allowed me to develop communicating complex ideas with clarity. I am also accustomed to producing high-quality work through sheer determination in pressurized, dynamic working environments where accuracy and meticulous attention to detail are required. Coupled with my leadership roles within AIESEC UK and Law Beyond borders which have provided me with the opportunity to work creatively within a team setting, I believe I am qualified to take on this role.
I strongly believe that I am a candidate worth considering for the position. I very much appreciate your time and consideration, and would welcome an opportunity to discuss my application in more detail. I look forward to hearing from you.
