Dragi gosp. Poslodavcu:
This letter is to express my interest in the analyst position listed on KillerJobs.com. I have an MBA from the University of Pluto and extensive Wall Street experience. I’m now a guest lecturer at the University of Berkeley’s business school. It is a challenging position, but I want to return to equity coverage, especially with a company like Mofo that focuses on the Pacific Rim.
The ad said you seek someone experienced in tracking the oil industry who can lead a team of junior analysts. I tracked the sector for seven years at Dewey, Cheetum & Howe in New York and oversaw the work of five analysts. We produced both industry and company-specific reports. My team was the first to raise concerns about Piddling Oil’s ability to develop its Caspian field. The financial press immediately picked up my report and, as you know, Monster Oil bought Piddling six months later–a company we had identified as a likely candidate to snap up its undercapitalized competitor. My team beat the competition, and we served our clients well.
I am eager to learn more about the analyst position at Mofo Corporation, and I look forward to meeting with you. My résumé and several reports, including my industry-leading insights on Piddling Oil, are enclosed.
Thank you for taking the time to review my résumé and material. I will call you next week.
