Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Gregory Consultants
GOT THE JOB? Yes
I am writing in response to the recent vacancy for your company, that was advertised
on the Oxford University Careers Service website. I wish to apply for the post of
Business Analyst with Gregory Consultants.
As you will see from my CV, I am in my final year at Oxford University, studying
Mathematics. My internship with Schroder Salomon Smith Barney convinced me that
I have the personality and qualities necessary to be a successful business analyst, and
I am keen to pursue a career in the consultancy sector, as I believe it will give me
exposure to, and involvement with, a variety of different organisations. From my
discussions with those in the industry, I know that you value breadth of experience
and encourage your analysts’ involvement with all stages of a project. The
opportunity to see a project from conception to conclusion appeals enormously to me.
I would like to work in an environment where the pressures and rewards are
immediate, and I am applying to Gregory Consultants because it is an expanding firm
with a good reputation for both training and rewarding its employees. I feel confident
that I can meet the challenges presented by such a fast-moving business.
I am effective in team situations, and enjoy working with others towards a common
goal. I have sought out opportunities to work on worthwhile projects throughout my
time at university, and planned and managed publicity for the college ball and the
voluntary organisation Jacari. My three-month placement as a business analyst
involved work in a range of areas, including research and modelling, and I was able to
use the analytical skills honed during my degree to good effect, as well as developing
my written and oral communication skills liaising with visiting sixth-form students.
I look forward to hearing from you.
