Dear Ms. King,
I would like to put my skills and experience to work for Fortress Investment Group LLC by filling the open position of Equity Analyst.
I have a bachelor’s degree in financial management and I worked as an Equity Analyst Assistant for over two years. During this time, I took part in conferences and meetings to help determine which financial investments would be the most beneficial for the company and which ones would be best left for another time.
Some of the duties I performed included reviewing balance sheets along with income and cash flow statements to look for ways to make improvements. I have experience calculating financial ratios and exchange rates. I am also knowledgeable in Excel, Bloomberg, Reuters, Word and a number of other programs needed in this profession and I have experience working in securities analysis.
I have the skills to get the job done in a timely and efficient manner. I am hard working, motivated and well organized. I pay close attention to detail and have the ability to meet tight deadlines. I am team oriented but I have the ability to work independently. I have outstanding critical thinking and research abilities and I possess great writing and presentation skills.
The attached resume contains a more comprehensive look at my education, experience and skills. I am confident that I can be a great asset to your company and I hope that you will consider me as a top candidate for this job.
You can reach me to arrange an interview by calling (555)-555-5555 and I look forward to meeting with you soon.
