Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Allianz Global Investors
Thank you very much for the invitation to interview for the above stated postion. I appreciate the opportunity and I look forward to meeting with you. As per your request, I enclose my CV, transcripts and job references for your consideration.
Allianz Global Investors appeals to me because of its flat, meritocratic structure, which encourages professional development. Moreover, I am intrigued by the excellent training you offer your employees, including studying towards obtaining the Chartered Financial Analyst qualification. Finally, Allianz Global Investor ́s strong market position and its global outreach match my desire to work at a firm which is leading in its sector and allows one to work on an international level. The role of the Trainee appeals to me, as it is a role at the nexus of finance and research and matches my desire to employ my analysis skills in a fast-paced environment. Another distinguishing feature of this role is that it allows for continuous learning, meaningful contributions early on and a varied work environment, which I can easily adapt to.
My Political Sciences degree and my work as a research assistant have moulded me into a highly inquisitive and evaluative thinker. The position of the research assistant involved the processing of large amounts of data and required a lot of attention to detail. As a postgraduate business student at a triple-accredited business school, I was offered to write a case study on a public-private partnership project for a textbook on project finance due to my strong performance in class. This experience demonstrates that I not only possess an affinity to work at the nexus of finance and research, but also have the drive to immerse myself in unknown subject matters. Being an avid reader of the Economist and the Financial Times has furthermore strengthened my business acumen and my knowledge of the financial world. My analytical skills coupled with my commitment to hard work match your candidate profile.
I have lived and worked in four different countries. This experience enables me to function effectively in a global setting and quickly build rapport with external clients. My team-working and project management skills enabled me to successfully lead seminars in two countries for up to 50 international participants each. My internship at a recruiting company exposed me to client-focused work and working to tight deadlines in a fast-paced environment.
The strong emphasis I place on being a high achiever and working hard will allow me to be an invaluable asset to your firm.
