he Chief Recruiting Officer

Credit Suisse
Dear Sir/Madam,
I, Aman Agrawal, am a final year B. Tech student of Chemical Engineering Department. I write to
express my interest in joining Credit Suisse as an Analyst for Prime Services in Mumbai office.
Four years of education in field of engineering and business management (Minor Degree) has led me to believe
that finance provides me with the best opportunity to align my interests with my career goals. This industry offers
a unique opportunity to work across verticals and horizontals with some of the world’s leading clients in fields of
investment banking, private banking and asset management services. This sector demands energy and ambition in
its employees and provides a learning opportunity of all the sectors and industries, which looks very promising to
me. This is the sector which rewards you for your performance
The brilliant people and the vibrant & encouraging work culture of Credit Suisse as vouched by seniors and
surveys alike is something that makes it a preferred place for me to work at. Credit Suisse being a leading
provider of Prime Services; create practical solutions understanding the unique needs and challenges faced by the
funds. Reputed as the safest Prime Service provider and best Prime broker, there are a lot of opportunities and
avenues to explore such as prime financing, listed derivative and managed lending. Apart from these, the cultural
diversity and employee empowerment to work openly and respectfully appeals me a lot.
Throughout my student life I’ve strived to excel in things I have kept myself involved in. Although from an
engineering background, I have taken keen interest in finance during my undergraduate studies completing
courses in Financial Management & Accounting and Managerial Economics. I’ve been certified by National
Stock Exchange in courses of Financial Markets and Investment & Portfolio Management with distinction marks.
Maintaining a balance between co-curricular and extra-curricular activities has always been my prime focus.
Apart from academics, I have always been very passionate about sports and music all my life. Not only have I
excelled as a player, but as a leader, I have managed the team, discovered new talent, and provided exposure to
the team at the national level as the institute captain (volleyball). The responsibility of General Secretary of Board
for Sports Activities (BSA) has provided me with an opportunity to make an impact on the student community as
a whole. Playing different genres of music with different set of people has enhanced values of creativity,
innovativeness and dedication in me. All these experiences have imparted in me a never-say-die attitude, a skill of
managing time and people and confidence to deliver results.
I strongly feel that with the confidence developed through years of rigorous training at premier institutes, and
diverse exposure through various channels, I shall be able to meet the high standards of excellence at Credit
Suisse. I really appreciate your time and consideration; hope to heat from you in near future.
Aman Agrawal
