GOT THE JOB? Yes
I am writing to express my interest in the Financial Analyst position you have posted. My attached resume highlights my broad range of experience and qualifications that closely align with the position description.
My accumulated experiences focus on my ability to gather data from a range of sources and apply that information to developing plans for both the short and long term in a variety of business segments. My work has included interacting with all levels in an organization, providing timely updates on key trending data, anticipating changes that may be needed to accomplish goals and utilization of a variety of software tools that have included advanced use of Excel and proprietary report-writing software.
In my position as Senior Financial Analyst Modeling & Planning, Treasury & Risk Management, at Cardinal Red University I was responsible for the development and use of a ten-year financial model used to analyze “what if” scenarios. Additionally, I completed a complex analysis that integrated data from a variety of sources to analyze the financial performance of each major offered by the university. This work took advantage of my data analysis skills, my ability to interact with the senior managers of the university, my ability to think strategically and anticipate the future needs of the university, my ability to work with very detailed data while keeping an eye on the bigger picture and having the skill to develop and give succinct, informational and actionable presentations. Cardinal Red University is undergoing a need for staff reduction and my position has been included in those that are being eliminated.
The position of Financial Analyst is attractive to me because it does require excellent analytical and thinking skills, the ability to communicate and your advertised need of having the ability to “operate effectively in a fast-paced, constantly changing environment”.I would appreciate an opportunity to learn more about your organization and the position of Financial Analyst.
