I have previously completed Internships with XXX Company. Through this experience working on Investment and Product strategy teams, I have gained Financial and Analytical skills and honed my abilities of working in a team as well as taking important decisions. I also had the opportunity to work on the <.......> of ......., which will be launched in near future.

Alongside my regular academic curriculum, I have spent 3 years as a part of the organising team of XXXXX starting as a volunteer to the Executive Head. I have a lot of experience working as a team player as well as heading independent teams for various responsibilities. In the process I have worked with numerous organisations handling sponsorship and branding, connected with VC firms, conceptualised campaigns and have been successful in almost doubling the output compared to previous years. Having had the experience of maintaining relations with corporates, I would like to work with government establishments to enhance my understanding of the dynamics within government bodies as well as leverage my skill sets to help build strong relations that would be instrumental for years ahead.

Given my experience in a Multinational Financial Services industry as well as a Non-profit educational organisation management, I hope, I would be an ideal candidate for policy formulation, research, planning and management and bring versatility in the decision making the solve the intended problems.
