Boston Consulting Group
Subject: Job Application.
I introduce myself as Vipin Antil. I am a third year student at Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal, pursuing a Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) degree in Instrumentation and Control Engineering.
On discovering this internship opportunity, I became very excited, upon seeing it, to add up business management and practical experience. Therefore, I have chosen to apply for this profile. During my second semester at college, I developed passion for analytics and data-driven marketing which influenced my decision to work in the field of marketing and part-take in my extracurricular activities.
The reason why I have chosen to apply to this internship is that I have sought out multiple opportunities to develop my analytical skills and I further want to develop other professional skills in this field too. I believe that I am a good fit for this position as I have a varied range of work experience in digital marketing and business development. This last winter, I interned at OYO Rooms in Manipal. My position entailed marketing products to different target groups in campus and publicising the offers specific to the university students. I was able to utilise my marketing skills to promote OYO Rooms.
I have been an active contributor to my college’s festivals, where I help arrange events and conduct talks from prospective sponsors. As a Sponsorship team organizer for the cultural fest, Revels 17, I developed professional communication skills. As a Campus Ambassador for BYJU’s in Manipal University, I was responsible for updating the students with information on further career and higher studies. This involved a bit of digital marketing and one-on-one marketing of the products and services offered by BYJU’s to the in-campus students. In addition, I am currently learning SAS & Business Analytics with R and I am willing to learn Python & SQL in advance of the placement.
Right now I am very enthusiastic about getting a foothold in the Big Data industry. In the future, I see myself working in a reputed Financial Services firm which is why I really wish to intern at your company. As a student, I look forward to this internship to hone my knowledge in my area of interest. I believe that a professional experience in analytics will boost my career further and will provide me a stepping stone for my dreams.
I have heard a lot about American Express from a few of my seniors who are currently working at your company and a few who have interned there before. I have heard a lot about the culture and the work ethics, but mostly about the work-life balance at American Express. I would like to work with your company to understand the work culture and to know the way people interact in business. It will give me an edge over others and would hone my professional skills. These are the rationale why I am really determined and ambitioned to work with American Express. I prefer mentioning “work with” instead of “work at” here because I believe that if I get selected for this opportunity, I will work “with” the whole team, with American Express.
I believe that I possess good comprehensive and oratory skills and also believe that my leadership skills and corporate world work experience make me a prime candidate for this position. I like taking initiatives and believe strongly in teamwork and commitment. I am diligent and passionate about my work. I will be a valuable asset to your company and will use this as an opportunity to grow and further the development of my skill set. As I prepare for this career, I am eager to gain a more detailed understanding of the field by working closely with an experienced team. I feel confident that my skills and expertise make me a perfect candidate for this position.
I thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
