I’m currently in the process of applying for a place on Goldman Sachs summer internship. I am about to write the section where they ask for me to write a cover letter. They have an empty text box which says 300 words below it to type into. Here are the instructions:
"Please provide information on the following area(s) and copy text as appropriate from your resume / CV. For more information on how to copy and paste, please refer to the Help instructions.
Cover Letter - motivations for applying
Please provide information you would typically include in your cover letter in 300 words or less. Be sure to provide examples of the qualities you would bring to Goldman Sachs and describe your motivations for applying. If you are applying to more than one division, please discuss your motivations for applying to each."
I may be worrying too much about this, but should I fill this section in like an actual cover letter, with my name and address and layout similar to a letter? This section is part of an application where i’ve also provided all my personal information and addresses.
Also, whilst i’m posting I may as well ask, are there any tips on what to include in this section? I was planning on writing why I chose Goldman Sachs, why I chose the division i’m applying to and what qualities I can bring to Goldman Sachs. is this covering everything?
Thank you very much for reading all of this, hope to hear back soon.
