Dear Ms. Adair,
Re: Application for Analyst Position
I am writing to express my interest in securing an analyst position with your firm, in response to your job posting in the National Post. I am currently employed as a financial analyst at Solaris Ltd., an emerging software company providing management information system solutions to the telecommunications sector.
I come to you with a solid understanding of the MIS software industry and market participants. Reporting directly to the CFO at Solaris, I worked closely with Management on financial and strategic issues. As a highlight of my experience, I participated in three annual budgets, was instrumental in engineering one major corporate restructuring, and collaborated on diverse process development and monitoring initiatives. My work required me to interface with key actors in every department of the company to meet deadline-oriented deliverables.
At this stage in my career, I am ready to make the leap to consulting. My background working in an emerging software company provided me with an insightful perspective on problems that companies encounter in their day to day operations. I ask for the opportunity to translate that experience into business solutions for your customers.
In that regard, I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my qualifications and the possibility of joining your organization. Please find enclosed my resume for your review. I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours very truly,
