Sending Emails to Recruiters | GoFurther Careers Networking Series

June 18, 2017

Anyone ambitious should send emails to recruiters - doing so is respectful and helps you stand out. Here are a few sample emails you can use for traditional corporate finance jobs.

 

Sample 1

 

Hi Amanda, 

 

It was a pleasure to meet you at the Credit Suisse networking event at [insert School Name]. Thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to come and speak to us about your experiences and on the opportunities for undergraduates at Credit Suisse.

I was able to meet amazing analysts and associates at the company, such as Paul Dexter and Jaewon Chung. In particular, I was able to have a great conversation with Paul on his thoughts on the M&A market and whether the strong valuations and deal flows would continue. We also had an interesting discussion on transactions in the secondary market, which have been quite active and in high volumes lately.

Just to follow-up on our talk--I was wondering if you could connect me to people in the healthcare or FIG coverage group, Investment Banking division. I am very interested in a summer analyst position in these groups and would like to get more information and speak to someone. 

Throughout the ongoing recruiting process, I look forward to learning more about the company and getting involved with Credit Suisse.

 

Best Regards,

Hi,

 

It was a pleasure to meet your colleagues and the Goldman Sachs Investment Bankers at the Goldman Sachs networking event at [insert School Name]. Thank you for taking the time to organize and shed light on the opportunities for undergraduates at Goldman Sachs.

I was able to meet amazing professionals at the company, such as Jacob Munoz of FIG and Tony Pulice. In particular, I was able to have a great conversation with Tony on his deal work and his background as a consultant prior to Goldman Sachs. I worked at Ernst & Young in their Transaction Advisory team, where I dealt with financial institutions, and I was able to convey my interest in FIG to Jacob and learn about his background prior to Goldman.

I was wondering if you could connect me to people in the New York office, Investment Banking division. I am very interested in a summer analyst position there and would like to get more information and speak to someone. 

Throughout the ongoing recruiting process, I look forward to learning more about the company and getting involved with Goldman Sachs.
