Dear Hiring Manager:
I am writing to express my interest in the Corporate Strategy
Intern role at Electronic Arts Inc. Video-games have always been an essential
part of my life. I remember playing Mario and Dangerous Dave with my siblings
and friends as a kid. During college, I won the NFS MW competition hosted at my
institution. These games have not only helped me form bonds of camaraderie but
also taught me skills such as to adapt and never give up or to find the most
efficient route to the goal that I regularly use IRL. However, every ability is
not perfect for every situation. As I have continued to play more RTS games and
RPGs, I have learned to strategize on the fly and break down big missions into
smaller ones to achieve my goal. These gaming experiences have shaped a big
part of my life and have been the guiding force for behind many of my
decisions, and I would be thrilled to be a part of a team that shapes these
experiences for the future generation of
During my progressive career as a management consultant, I am
confident that I have spent my hard-earned skill points to level up on skills
that would help me drive impact at EA –
Skill – Ownership
and responsible leadership: My experience
at ZS Associates provided me unparalleled opportunities to develop and shape my
leadership skills. To illustrate, I actively managed four cross-continent teams
to design and implement a financial solution across 152 countries for a Fortune
100 pharmaceutical firm. I can leverage these skills to lead and guide teams at
EA while maintaining transparent and effective communication with all
stakeholders and create value..
Analytical Ability: While working on multiple global engagements, I
have devised efficient and effective process flows to resolve complicated
issues. In the middle of a project for a $56B US-based firm, the 4-member team
couldn’t meet client expectations and brought me in an advisory role to help. I
deep dived into the coding, changed the framework, and suggested an
optimization framework that made the solution at least five times faster. This
ability to propose simple yet effective solutions will help me produce the
highest quality work at EA.
Communication: I can convey critical points succinctly, and I
understand how to listen. As an offshore team-lead for multiple engagements
simultaneously, I communicated continuously with the broader global team to
understand developments in the project, keep track of deliverables or inform
the senior management of the progress. These communication skills would help me
perform at EA.
I would greatly
appreciate the opportunity to interview at EA and look forward to hearing from
you. Thank you for your time and consideration.
