Application for the role of Financial Analyst
I would like to apply for the role of Financial Analyst which I have seen advertised in (which publication and when), please find enclosed my CV which details my skills and qualifications.
I studied as a Business Analyst at (what university, when and what grade did you come out with) and during this time I did a financial element to my analysis work and after leaving university I went into a graduate role where I have been working in a financial role providing financial analysis figures to clients and going through their accounts and showing predictions.
I am now very keen to do a financial analyst role and was really interested in the role that I have seen advertised with your company. Having done some research into the company I feel that my skills would cross over well and I would be very interested to discuss this further with you.
