Dear Mr. Moore,

I’m writing to apply for the Financial Analyst position on [URL] under section [‘Work at’]. I was pleased when reading your job posting because I believe that my cutting-edge data and project management skills closely align to the requirements listed in the vacancy. I kindly ask you to consider this job application for the open finance specialist position at your department in New York City.

To shortly introduce myself, my name is [Kobe Bloomberg] and I have five years of working experience in developing financial models and conducting financial forecasts. I noticed [Company name]’s efforts on employees’ long term career opportunities through training, coaching and e-learning modules. The prospect of working in such an engaging and vibrant working environment is what makes me want to apply for this job opportunity.

During my internship at [Company name], I was assigned to work in the auditing and compliance department to help audit the financial statements of 10 multimillion-dollar companies. I have been working as a financial analyst at the same company ever since. Over the past few years, I managed to implement and streamline cutting-edge data management procedures and improved the operational efficiency by 10%, which reduced labour and material costs by 8%. To achieve these results, I had to manage 6 different projects with a budget over $200.000. I received recognition for these results (see references).

As of next month, I will be available for a 40-hour work week and therefore I am seeking to obtain a new, challenging and growth oriented position. I welcome the opportunity to discuss my candidacy and demonstrate my accounting abilities. I would like to draw your attention to my enclosed resume and references. For additional information, you can reach me at [000-0000-0000]. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Kind regards, 

Kobe Bloomberg
