Dear Sir or Madam,
I am currently a first year student of a Master’s Degree in Management at SKEMA Business School in France, and I am very interested in working in Finance through a work placement.
I am particularly interested in working in Finance in order to develop and apply my skills in this domain. Moreover, I am very keen on taking advantage of my international dimension by working abroad in the United-Kingdom.
During my courses in Finance I carried out a group project concerning Corporate Governance related to the firm’s economic challenges and its environment. This team work proved to be very interesting as it enabled me to apply my knowledge and skills in Finance while working with my colleagues and learning from them, and this is what I am especially looking for by working in your company. In addition, I am well-organised and I have the sense of detail which enables me to feel at ease while I am working in Finance.
Furthermore, I took the decision to carry out the third year of my Bachelor’s Degree in Languages (English and Chinese) in England. I worked a lot in multi-cultural teams during this academic year, which enabled me to develop my communication skills. Indeed, I had to communicate a lot with my team colleagues as we were all foreigners involving different cultures and ways of working, so that we could work in an efficient way. Finally, I was able to emphasise my open-mindedness and apply my English and Chinese language skills through this year abroad. As a result, this mobility proved that I was perfectly able to face challenges in an international context.
Consequently, I feel that I have the profile, background and skills to execute a work placement in Finance abroad.
I am available for a Skype interview at your convenience. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to meeting with you.
