Dear Ms Mahoney,
I am writing to express my interest in a position with American Express Financial. I have had ample opportunity to research companies for finance positions, and have found American Express Financial to be the best company all around. For this reason, I gratefully submit my resume and letter of interest for your Finance Associate position.
I have a B.S. in Finance and Accounting from Stanford University, and approximately three years working as a Financial Associate in an investment firm. With my comprehensive education, as well as my training in finance through my present position at Lucrative Investments; I have gained a lot of valuable knowledge regarding succeeding in the financial world. I hope to bring this to American Express Financial.
My reasons for applying for this position are many fold. First, though I have enjoyed the time I have spent with my present employer, I no longer feel challenged; and need a place where I can be constantly learning and honing my skills and talents for a financial career. Secondly, I have done ample research into the track records of financial companies in the country, and time and time again-American Express Financial has come up as a leader in innovation and successful financial concepts and dealings. Lastly, I have found that the company environment is one that expresses the same conditions in which I work at my own optimum-as well as employee reviews being stellar for company values. For all of these reasons and more, I seek to become a part of the American Express Financial team; and add my education, enthusiasm, financial background, and strong work ethic to its long term success.
You will find from the included resume and also professional references, that I have many professional contacts that can attest to my initiative, team playing success, and general value as a part of the team. I am great with people; enjoy working many hours, and finding success by the sweat of my brow. I look forward to the possible opportunity of extending these qualities to your company.
In closing, I thank you for your time; and can be reached at (555)-555-5555 at your earliest convenience to speak more about this position, and also any questions you may have about me.
Thank you for your consideration.
