Dear Ms. Shiner,
I write today with great interest and enthusiasm as to the opportunities you may have available at Franklin Investments, and have submitted my resume to this end.
I am a recent graduate of University of Michigan, and I know that my fantastic interpersonal skills, dedication to learning, educational background in Finance, and my strong work ethic; make me a great candidate for an entry level position with Franklin Investments.
Briefly, I have a Bachelor of Science in Finance, and graduated Magna cum Laude from the University of Michigan. While attending to my undergraduate coursework there, I was able to take a range of comprehensive courses in financial subjects, as well as fill the position of Class President and Debate Team Leader. I know that my success in my educational work, as well as my extracurricular activities was based wholly on my strengths as both a leader and team player; and I hope to apply both of these along with my work ethic, education in Finance, and enthusiasm towards a long and fruitful career with Franklin Investments.
Though I am a recent graduate, I do offer a wealth of talents and education, that I wish to put to work at your company. I also bring to the table the fact that I have been very selecting in who I choose to apply to for opportunities, as I have researched all companies in efforts of finding a position with a company who is a leader in the Finance industry. I look to Franklin Investments, as I know you have a long standing reputation as one of the best financial investment firms in the business-and I want to learn from the best.
I thank you very much for your time, and look forward to the possibility that we might speak further about what I can bring to the team at Franklin Investments. Please contact me at (555)-555-5555 to arrange a time for this.
