Mr. Adam Crowley
KPMG, Inc.
111 South Calvert Street
Baltimore, MD 21202

Dear Mr. Crowley:

Currently I am a junior in The Perdue Business School at Salisbury University and am actively seeking an internship with a reputable company such as KPMG. I was extremely impressed with KPMG’s approach to auditing after attending the presentation given by your firm on April 19, 2005 at Salisbury University. After discussing the summer internship program with Wade Adkins, a Salisbury University student who interned at KPMG, I became even more excited about your internship program. In addition, I talked to other students who interred at KPMG and after I conducted research of my own I confirmed my interest in KPMG. I believe my skills and qualifications make a great match for your intern program.

I will graduate from The Perdue School of Business with a degree in Accounting in May, 2006, and have completed an internship in the Bergey & Co., CPA Firm which lasted for 10 months. This internship provided me with solid analytical and problem solving skills through my responsibility of identifying and resolving financial reporting issues. In addition I learned how to use multiple accounting software and acquired skills based on incentive calculations and payments. Account reconciliations and analysis are procedures I was able to master and I participated in closing programs through preparation and review of consolidated financial statements schedules, research, and journal entries. You will find that I am interested in every facet of accounting, but most of all I am interested in international accounting because I have vast multicultural experience and foreign language skills.

I am excited about gathering “real” world experience with such a prestigious firm as KPMG. Being an international student, I possess a diverse, multicultural perspective which I feel is critical to succeed in today’s market place. My business overview is truly global by nature and the chance to enhance that overview with KPMG is desirable to say the least. Learning from a firm such as yours will give me a true vision as to what is expected from a college graduate in the world of accounting. If I am selected, I will work extremely hard to learn as much as I can while fully understanding as a college student I do have so much to learn.

I have enclosed my resume for your review. I welcome the opportunity to meet with you and would greatly appreciate having the chance to further discuss my skills and qualifications. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
