Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Visma


Business Analyst

On www.finn.no there is a long list with vacancy announcements from different business and IT consulting companies. I have gone through most of them. VISMA interested me to a lagre extent. I looked through available information on your web page and decided to apply for the position of Business Analyst/Quality Assurer.

I am a PhD Candidate in Applied Mathematics at the University of Bergen. The main project of mine is to develop a program which solves particular differential equations. The program is being developed with Python, IPython is used for user interface. Other than that I have a background in Statistics, mathematical modelling, programming and teaching. I also gained a vast experience in multicultural communication as I traveled during my university studies and worked for international entities. 

I understand that my profile may not be the best fit for the position, but, in constrast to other candidates, I can state my educational and professional experience as well as personal qualities which are vital for a progressive performance at work.

In case you get better candidates, I believe you may consider me for a different position within the company.
