Dear Recruiting Manager,

I am writing to apply for the 20XX Bridge to BCG workshop. I recently learned about this program when I attended the presentation by Dr. Panier at the reception for Advanced Degree Candidates at BCG’s Boston office. I expect to complete my Ph.D. in Cellular Biology at Harvard University in May 20XX and look forward to the chance to get an insider’s view of consulting at BCG this summer. Based on my analytical skills, communication ability, and problem-solving mindset, I think I would be a great fit for this workshop.
My intellectual curiosity and passion for asking questions is what led me to pursue my Ph.D. in Cellular Biology; however, my interest in a business career is also long-standing. At UMass, Amherst, I combined my interests by pursuing a chemistry and economics double major and enjoyed gaining the quantitative and analytical skills. A Global Strategies course gave me a taste of the real-life challenges faced by companies, such as decisions Novo Industri of Denmark had to make in response to the technology developments for insulin purification in the 1980s. On the other hand, a bioinformatics course introduced me to the challenges biologists encounter in producing and analyzing large scale biological data. Throughout my Ph.D. education, in addition to improving my research and analytical skills, I kept up my interest in the business of science. I participated in a workshop on Healthcare Innovation and Commercialization to explore how science is applied in the business world. I collaborated with five of the workshop participants to prepare a venture capital pitch to commercialize a real-life innovation in anesthesia for child-birth. Our “VC pitch” was selected, by a panel of five expert judges, as the best among four presentations.

My passion for teaching has provided me with a unique skill set that I believe will be critical for a successful career in consulting. My communication skills strengthened as I challenged myself to understand and respond to students’ questions while they tackled complex biological concepts. To convey material clearly to students with diverse learning styles, I developed different approaches to explain a single concept. I also embraced and supported a team culture, utilizing student feedback to improve my own performance and encouraging students to engage each other in their learning.

The analytical and communication skills I have honed throughout my PhD work will provide a strong foundation as I transition from the life sciences to a career in consulting. I am specifically interested in BCG due to its unique approach to personal growth and tailored solutions for each client. A commitment to support and train ADC members and global opportunities offered through BCG are invaluable. I look forward to hearing back from you about the opportunity to participate in the 20XX Bridge to BCG workshop and to learn even more about BCG. Thank you for your time and consideration.
