Ms. Mary Smith Striped Bass, Inc. 1010 Avenue of the Stars, Ste. 900 Los Angeles, CA 90000

Dear Ms. Smith,

Jane Jones, a friend and Senior Financial Analyst at Striped Bass, suggested that I forward my resume to you. Based on a review of your website and my conversations with Jane about my educational training, work experience, and professional interests, I believe I would fit right in at Striped Bass. I am highly motivated to build a successful career in finance and hope to contribute to the team at Striped Bass as a Financial Analyst.

My fascination with finance has grown steadily during my business school studies, driven mostly by my desire to understand how business decisions are made. Beginning with my first finance class and continuing with more in-depth study of corporate finance and managerial accounting, I have come to see how financial data can be used to make business decisions, whether in launching a new product or acquiring a new company. I have also learned how important it is to keep a big-picture perspective during the decision-making process. This duality appeals to me tremendously as it follows directly from what I have been studying: business with its detailed focus on the company, and economics with its broad perspective on industry and the marketplace. Working as a Financial Analyst with Striped Bass would be a natural extension of the academic foundation I have gained.

My work experiences also reflect my desire to become involved with challenging projects such as those offered by your organization. The opportunity at Striped Bass to participate in executing senior staff’s complex projects as well as eventually leading my own is very appealing to me. At Boston Scientific, I created numerous forecast and inventory reports for the Global Supply Chain Management team. This required significant attention to detail and analytical work. I further developed my communication and financial skills by working on numerous cost efficiency projects for the Microbiology department, including the creation of a corporate-wide standing order matrix.

I would build upon these skills and experiences at Striped Bass and am confident that I would do outstanding work as a Financial Analyst. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, as I would like to meet with you at your convenience to discuss the possibility of full-time employment.

Yours Sincerely,

(The Sender's Signature)
