Dear Mr. Johnson —

Ever since I was a young child, I was exceptional with math. It came easy for me. But many other subjects did not. And when I started to get older, I realized that looking over large data sets was something that was easier for me than others. Through that, I discovered corporate finance. I'd love to apply my skills to your company needs. Here are some of the things I've been able to do as a previous Financial Analyst:

Audited more than 10,000,000 records of financial information in Q1 of 2012.
Took part in more than 20,000 market condition and business analysis sessions.
Collaborated with other financial analysts and business analysts to provide leadership with market projections.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
