I am writing because I am extremely interested in securing an internship position in your Financial Management Program. Throughout my college career, I have demonstrated perseverance and consistently challenged myself to obtain the knowledge and experience that would prepare me for a challenging and rewarding career. I am ready to bring that same motivation to GE. I have gained diversified work experiences within the corporate finance sector, the restaurant service industry, and pharmaceutical industry, which have prepared me well for the challenges as a finance intern.
