Business Analyst

Dear Ms. Allen: I am responding to your posting for an entry-level audit position through SDSU Career Services. I am very interested in your firm after hearing your presentation at the Accounting Society meeting on campus last month. I am presently maintaining a 3.60 grade point average while completing my Master of Science in Accounting at San Diego State University. I have supplemented my accounting coursework with advanced study in Spanish, as required in your job description. After studying abroad in Spain and participating in an internship with KPMG in Madrid during my junior year, I would rate my Spanish language skills as highly developed. In addition to my university classes and internship, I have been very active in on-campus groups at SDSU. I am currently serving as Treasurer, in charge of overseeing all the financial operations of __________. This role has strengthened my leadership, teamwork, and public speaking skills. I feel that my strong grade point average and Spanish language skills, in conjunction with my internship and leadership activities, are good indicators of my ability to succeed as an auditor with your firm. I will contact you at the end of the week to discuss the possibility of an interview for this position. If you have any questions about my resume or application, please call me at 619-123-6789 at your convenience. Thank you for your time and attention to my interview request. Sincerely, J
