Hiring Manager
Barclays Capital
Investment Banking Division

New York, NY 10166
Dear Ms. Doe:
I am a senior economics major at Smith College very interested in the investment banking analyst
program at Barclays Capital. At the September 27th information session at Amherst College I was
struck by first-year analyst Gregg Casale’s description of Barclays as a global team that prides
itself on its ability to do things differently while delivering exceptional financial solutions for
clients. With my finance experience, teamwork, and problem-solving skills, I believe I am well-
paired to the analyst program and to Barclays Capital’s culture.
As a summer analyst at Morgan Stanley last year, I prepared pitch books and analyses for client
presentations and built financial models for leveraged buyouts and credit reviews. Through
participating in deal calls as part of the Financial Institutions Group team, I gained an
understanding of how client needs are best met under the pressure of time. Currently as
treasurer of Smith’s Student Government Association, I administer financial transactions for 120+
student organizations and oversee a $500,000 budget, responsibilities which draw on my attention
to detail and ability to balance multiple priorities.
I’m attracted to the firm’s practice of bringing togethera flat hierarchy of diverse team members,
each with the opportunity to make a difference through creative problem solving, as this is how
I’ve discovered I work best. Barclays Capital’s commitment to service projects such as mentoring
at-risk students and serving food in local shelters appeals to me to given my volunteer experience
with our local Big Sisters program. The firm’s client-centered philosophy and global market
position combined with the opportunity to contribute to the community make Barclays Capital an
exciting place to build my career.
I welcome the opportunity to talk with you about my qualifications, experience, and interest in the
analyst program at Barclays Capital. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to
hearing from you.
