Sean Lee
ABC Consulting Group
123 Business Rd.
Business City, NY 54321

Dear Mr. Lee,

I am a second-year Smith Business School student interested in interviewing for a full-time

consultant position with The ABC Consulting Group. I believe that The ABC Consulting Group
has the ideal culture in which to pursue my goal of becoming a strategic business leader and

My professional experience and Smith Business School education have prepared me to be

successful at The ABC Consulting Group. Leading a high-level project to develop a China entry
and growth strategy in the new media industry for Television Networks Asia gave me invaluable
global strategy experience.

Furthermore, interviewing senior executives and entrepreneurs of top media and technology
companies gave me the unique opportunity to engage in high level business discussions with
leaders of industry.

While at DEF Consulting as a consultant, I managed global information security projects, which
gave me experience in the consultative and client service approach. As a joint-degree student
(MBA/MA International Studies), I have the flexibility in both language and culture to operate
successfully in many different contexts.

Finally, as a musician and producer of my own record, I have developed the capacity to think
creatively and entrepreneurially.

I firmly believe that I will be a good fit in The ABC Consulting Group's collaborative,
entrepreneurial, and intellectual culture. I am excited at the prospect of working for The ABC
Consulting Group upon graduation and have enclosed my resume for your review. Thank you
for your time and consideration.

Mr. John Doe

A.T. Kiley 222
West Dover Street
Chicago, IL 60606

Dear Mr. Doe:

I had the opportunity to work closely with Jane Smith, an A.T. Kiley consultant in the Higher
Education Practice, as a member of XYZ University's Presidential Search Committee. This was
my first exposure to the consulting profession, and it was a perfect match for someone with my
academic record, communication and leadership skills, and drive to succeed.

I have shown initiative, creativity in problem solving, and a commitment to building consensus
and excellence throughout our college community during the last four years. As an intern in the
Office of the U.S. Deputy Secretary of Education, I worked with the Senior Advising team to
provide accurate, effective, and concise statistical and anecdotal data to a variety of
constituents in order to support legislative proposals. I combined the written and oral skills I
have gained from courses in American Studies and Government with quantitative and analytical
training in a high intensity environment.

As Vice President of Academic Affairs for the Student Government Association and a student
representative on several college committees (including the one which nominated the sixth
President of XYZ University), I have learned:

 to use language precisely and effectively

 to articulate myself to a range of audiences
 the value of integrity and persistence in working toward short- and long-term personal
and institutional goals

The opportunity to effect positive change for a range of institutions is the most attractive
aspect of consulting for me. Employees have described A.T. Kiley as "down to earth" and as
having an "open culture."

I feel lucky to have been part of a college community whose openness has allowed for
measured risks and the candor necessary to achieve its goals, and I hope to begin my career in a
similarly rigorous and collegial environment where can I learn from industry leaders. I look
forward to exploring further my opportunities at A.T. Kiley and will call next week to see if it is
possible to arrange an interview.
