Dear Mr. McMullin:
I recently spoke with
Erin Frey regarding an internship with Pricewater houseCoopers’ International
Assignment Solutions division of the Tax and Legal Services department,
and I am very interested in this position. PricewaterhouseCoopers’ reputation
as a “Big Five” accounting firm speaks for itself, and the International
Assignment Solutions is known as the leader in consulting for firms with
international dimensions. I feel the internship will be a great experience
for me, while at the same time allowing me to demonstrate my skills to
From the PricewaterhouseCoopers
website, I have learned that the internship position requires proficiency
in finance and accounting. As you will see from my enclosed resume, I have
excelled in both academic areas, as well as in business courses overall.
My previous work experience has also allowed me to develop skills which
are beneficial in the business world. Working in the Louisiana State
Senate gave me the opportunity to work in teams daily where I was responsible
for researching and preparing legislation for the senators, as well as
efficiently conducting senate committee meetings. This experience has taught
me the importance of functioning as a group with every member completing
their assigned tasks to meet deadlines, and I know this will benefit me
in any position with PricewaterhouseCoopers.
While working for the
Federal Bureau of Investigation, I acquired many technical skills that
may also benefit PricewaterhouseCoopers. I am knowledgeable in web development,
and I understand that International Assignment Solutions maintains a website
independent from PricewaterhouseCoopers that allows clients to learn the
latest tax laws from countries where they have projects. Also, my ability
to use Microsoft Office will aid in developing cost projections that International
Assignment Solutions performs for its clients, and my international experiences
have prepared me for dealing with foreign cultures.
I am very excited about
the opportunity to be a part of the PricewaterhouseCoopers team, and I
feel I can positively contribute to International Assignment Solutions.
If you need any additional information, please feel free to contact me
at 225-766-3327 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your
time, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
