What to Include in Your Cover Letter

Make sure your cover letter demonstrates your flexibility, along with other skills that are essential for consultants, such as communication and leadership skills. As well, mention any specialized skills related to your area of consulting. Here's more information on consultant job titles, skills, and career paths.

Dear Mr./Ms. LastName,

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 thinker.

My professional experience and Smith Business School education prepare 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, managing global information security projects 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.

More Consultant Cover Letter Tips 

In your consultant cover letter, as in any cover letter, you are making a case for your candidacy. Follow these strategies to make an effective case: 

Send a personalized letter. While it may seem like a timesaver, avoid creating a generic form letter and sending it off with every consultant application.

Your cover letter will be more persuasive if it's targeted to the specific company and job at hand. In your letter, explain why you are eager to work for this company in particular. For instance, maybe the company specializes in helping businesses based in Asia expand to the United States, and you wrote a thesis on that very topic. If you have a connection at the company, you can mention the person's name (with permission) to strengthen your cover letter.  

Reference relevant experience and skills. But don't just write a list of positions and responsibilities (that's what your resume is for) or make statements about your abilities and skills. Instead, tell a story — follow the classic writing advice of "show, don't tell." Instead of saying, "I'm a hard worker and good with the details" give an example of a time when you demonstrated grit and follow-through with a project.

Check and double-check your cover letter. Before you hit the send button on your email, or place your letter in an envelope, read through it carefully. Make sure it follows the correct cover letter format. Proofread carefully, checking for typos and grammatical errors. (Follow these proofreading tips for job seekers.) Confirm that any attachments mentioned in the email are indeed attached, and that the recipient's name and the company name are spelled correctly. 

How to Send an Email Cover Letter

If you're sending a cover letter via email, list your name and the job title in the subject line of the email message. Include your contact information in your email signature, and don't list the employer contact information. Start your email message with the salutation (see salutation examples). Get more information on sending an email cover letter, and how to apply for jobs over email.
