I am a final year student of Bachelors of Finance from International School of Management, WA. I have completed my internship from Wilson Financial Firm in July 2004. I need your help to get job references.
During my internship, I have learned about the practical application of the theoretical knowledge that I have gained during graduation. I have good academic records and was listed in the Dean's list for the last two semesters. I am looking for job in a small or mid-sized company that is around 2−10 years old and has 20−25clients. By starting work from a small company, I would be able to clarify basics of finance. Another positive aspect of starting career in a small organization would be that I will gain knowledge about work in different departments and will have more responsibilities than in large organization. I have attached my resume with this letter. It will provide more details about my education background and skills. Kindly recommend me for any such job opening you are aware about. If any of your friends or colleagues are aware about any such opening. Kindly provide them my reference or please give their contact details to me, so that I can ask them for recommendation.
Thank you for taking time from your hectic schedule and going through the letter. I would be eagerly waiting for your reply. After going through my resume you will be assertive about my financial knowledge and expertise. Please recommend me for those job openings you find me suitable for.
