Dear Internship Hiring Committee:
I am writing to express my interest in Deloitte’s Audit Summer 20XX Internship at the San Francisco office. As a junior Accounting and Finance major at the University of San Francisco, I am the perfect candidate for this internship, as I bring accounting work experience and desire to contribute to Deloitte’s success as a public accounting firm.
In the past two years, I have gained a great amount of experience working at the Accounting and Business Services Office at the University of San Francisco processing Concur reconciliation statements, depositing checks, and preparing for an end-of-the-year audit for 20XX. As my responsibilities increased, I learned how to extract financial data from the University's internal database, generate business intelligence reports, and use Microsoft Excel to reconcile various accounts. During this learning process, I was able to use my detail-oriented and time management skills to take on a wide range of projects, meet daily and monthly deadlines, and ask questions to improve my understanding of accounting concepts.
In addition to my work experience in an accounting office, I was also a Legal Intern for Kong Law Offices in Oakland this past summer. As an intern, my main tasks were to ensure that all client files were ready for trials, conduct legal research, create settlement demands, and assist Cantonese-speaking clients when necessary. Through this internship, I was able to use my strong written and verbal communication skills to pass on information and learn about various legal strategies to find solutions and close cases. By having experience in both accounting and legal services, I am able to take on a variety of assignments and to adapt to different environments.
My professional work ethic, eagerness to learn, and hardworking character make me a great candidate for Deloitte’s Audit Summer 20XX Internship. If hired I will commit to contributing to Deloitte’s vision to be the “Standard of Excellence,” the first choice of the most sought-after clients and talent. I am confident I can meet the expectations required for this internship and look forward to speaking with you soon. Thank you for your time and consideration.
