Investment Banking Cover Letter Tutorial (with FREE Word template)

A long time ago I said that we would never post a investment banking cover letter template… but here it is (click more for the download):
By http://www.mergersandinquisitions.com/ “Break Into Investment Banking or Private Equity, The Easy Way”
I was tempted to post a Word template, but I don’t want 5,000 daily visitors to copy it and to start using the same exact cover letter.

But hey, we already have resume templates that everyone is using, so why not go a step further and give you a cover letter template as well?

Plus, “investment banking cover letter” is one of the top 10 search terms visitors use to find this site — so you must be looking for a template.

So here it is: http://www.mergersandinquisitions.com/investment-banking-cover-letter-template/ (Get the full Word and PDF template here)

    A summer analyst gave me some inside detail about a vacancy in the firm he works and I'm not sure whether I should mention his name in my cover letter because of his designation? Any advice on this please?

    Thank you for your reply, one more thing- how would you bring up an extensive travel history (60+ countries) and language skill set (I am trilingual- but apart from English, the other two aren't major European languages, that they tend to desire). Any advice would be sincerely appreciated.

    I come from a medical non-finance background, how do I modify the template to allow myself to be competitive? Do I talk about my experiences in hospital placements and such, with a focus on team work, high pressure etc? Thank you for your assistance and guidance.
