Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Citigroup


Public Finance Analyst

Dear Sir or Madam,

This letter is in regards to my interest in the Public Finance Analyst position with Citi.

I am currently a Business Risk Consultant at Deloitte in the Risk Advisory practice, which is a practice that advises clients on how to effectively optimize their management of strategic, financial, operational, technological, and regulatory risk to maximize enterprise value. I joined Deloitte after graduating from Baruch College in May 2014, with a Bachelors in Economics. Being that I am a first generation college graduate, I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to expand on the values that I obtained while working in my family’s grocery store at a young age, by joining Deloitte and developing my analytical, technical, and quantitative skills. However, I have had a keen interest in the municipal finance space for several years, and am hoping to now gain more exposure by transitioning to a Public Finance Analyst role.

My interest in municipal finance sparked during my internship at a boutique investment banking firm, Global Gaming and Hospitality, which is an opportunity that I secured through my involvement in the Management Leadership of Tomorrow Career Prep Program. We advised a municipality, Worcester, Massachusetts, on whether it should host the development of a casino gaming facility. One of my deliverables for this project was to conduct research on host development agreements between a municipalities and gaming companies, as well as municipal budgets. I learned a little about how municipalities receive financing from banks to finance infrastructure projects, as well as develop hospitals and schools. After this experience, I did more research and started to appreciate municipal finance for being a cultivation of 3 disciplines: financial markets, economics, and public policy. I feel strongly about contributing to the growth of local governments, being that I grew up Washington Heights, NYC, a community that has historically been underserved. Municipal finance allows me to do that as a profession while at the same time strengthening my knowledge of the macro economy and financial markets. Furthermore, there is a great deal of satisfaction from knowing that Public Finance contributes tremendously towards the economic development of state and local governments by playing an integral role in infrastructure, healthcare, and educational development.

Given my experience and interests, I am a particularly good fit for the Public Finance Analyst positon at Citi, and I would relish the opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you at your earliest convenience. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Sample cover letter for Internship position at Citi



I am interested in becoming a summer analyst in the Risk Management division. The idea of playing with risk and making business decisions based off of the data in order to maximize profits while simultaneously minimizing costs intrigues me greatly. Being in control of risk leads to growth as well as consistent performance, and I am very curious as to how risk can be quantified to stabilize a business.

Although I do not have much work experience to offer, that just means that I have not yet picked up any bad habits. Instead, the mentors assigned at Citi can correctly guide me through all the fundamentals that there is to banking. It is more than just learning one method of problem-solving in a specific sector and applying that over and over; it is a stream of education that will guide me in future business prospects, and with Citi’s world-class reputation, the knowledge I gain will make a difference.

The key strengths that I possess to be successful in this internship include:

  • Communication skills to convey how the products we sell are unmatched and convincing the potential buyer that it would be a decision that they would not regret.
  • Motivation and self-organization to set up my own presentations and schedules throughout the week.
  • A preference towards numbers, an interest in mathematics and statistics; I enjoy analyzing figures and getting results.
  • Analytical and problem solving skills.

Thank you for taking the time to review the credentials and experience that I have and for the opportunity to apply for this internship.
