Mr. James Crowley
Finance Manager
Acme Inc.
555 W. Applegarth Blvd.
Anytown, TX 75000

Dear Mr. Crowley:

Two of your former interns, Brian Hodges and Martha Smith, suggested I contact you regarding finance internship opportunities. They are familiar with my background and felt I would be an excellent match for your summer internship program.

Currently a junior majoring in finance at UNT, I have demonstrated strong academic performance in all finance courses, maintaining a 3.5 GPA in my major. The courses I have completed have given me a solid foundation in the tools, processes and methodologies involved in the successful analysis and management of portfolio-investment strategies. I have a proven ability to learn challenging concepts quickly and have developed competencies in diverse areas, including:



  • Industry research/information sourcing
  • Comparative analysis
  • Quantitative analysis
  • Pro forma analysis
  • Cash-flow analysis
  • Financial modeling and asset valuation
  • Portfolio and asset management
  • Insurance plans and mutual funds
  • Retirement and estate planning
  • Tax planning and investment strategies

In addition to my analytical strengths, I bring to the table advanced computer skills (with cross-platform exerptise in Windows and Mac); expertise in the MS Office suite of products; and familiarity with programming languages including SQL, HTML and VB.

Since starting college, I have worked part-time (summers/holidays/evenings) as a clerk at Wal-Mart. In this position, I have earned a reputation for consistently exceeding company and customer expectations. Wal-Mart's store manager has asked me to return this summer, but I yearn to gain corporate finance experience. I am impressed by Acme's innovation and success, and I would very much like to be part of such a winning company.

The enclosed resume provides more details of my skills and achievement track record. If you agree that I would make a valuable addition to your team, please feel free to call me at (555) 555-5555 or email me at I know you are busy, so thank you for your time, and I look forward to speaking with you.

Re: Best way to say "German Learner" on your CV/Covering letter


For now though, we just want to find a good way of saying that she's learning German and pushing forwards with it so that she can apply for jobs now rather than waiting to pass a test.

You can have a section called "Weitere Fähigkeiten". Under that, list the languages and in brackets the level. For example:

The CV should be in German completely. Get it translated if not.

Englisch (Muttersprache)
Deutsch (Grundkenntnisse, Goethe Zertifikate A2 November 2014)
Italienisch (Gut, CILS B1 July 2013)

In general, a language certificate can be deemed as "valid" for current knowledge for e.g., 12 months. If there are no exams passed, then list the course completion dates instead. The more recent the dates, obviously the more interested you appear (e.g., A1 course January 2015, A2 course February 2015, etc., . ). However, the language certificate at each stage makes this more concrete.

A rough way to convey the level for your CV is:

A1, A2: Grundkenntnisse
B1: Gut
B2: Fließend / Konversationssicher
C1: Verhandlungsicher

The reason I have put C1 as Verhandlungssicher, is because job sites rate Verhandlungssicher as what you need to have, to work in your specialist field of expertise. B2 rarely allows that. Usually you need C1 passed to be regarded as being able to conduct your business in the language, go to university, etc., .

B2 is sufficient to get casual work or non specialist work. The difference is vocabulary. B2 is around 3000-4500 word vocab, C1 is around 6000-7000 (rough estimate needed to pass the Goethe exams).

Re: Best way to say "German Learner" on your CV/Covering letter

Second 3Wishes advice. I have a paragraph listing the languages I speak as well incl the levels. I would add: "German - basic knowledge, currently taking intensive language courses (A2 level)" or something like that (take the higher level she's currently studying for, not the lower)

Also, there are admin jobs in large MNCs or generally international firms where German isn't necessary even on an admin level. Not a whole lot, but there are some. Plenty of Admins at my company that speak no German at all. Try that rather than smaller and/or more local firms. Though difficult to get in, it's the best bet without sufficient (i.e. at least B2) knowledge of the local language.
