Human Resources Department

Dear Sir or Madam:

This letter is to express my interest in the ZZZZ/YYYY position within your GGGG/HHHH Team listed on http://www.YYYYYYYY.co.uk (Recruiter Ref: YYYYYY). I earned an economics master’s degree in September 2006 graduating within the top 10 of my class from the YYYYYYYY University Berlin which last year won the title 'Elite University' in a German-wide excellence initiative and whose department of economics is ranked 5 th in Europe and 2nd in Germany.

The ad said you seek someone who is passionate about the fixed income market and is able to work independently to produce accurate, detailed materials while meeting tight deadlines. Analyzing the events that influence the world economy as well as the fixed income market is my passion. Due to my stock market activities, mainly on the French small- and mid-cap market and by using primarily fundamental analysis combining it with technical analysis, I was able to finance my entire studies. In 2005 as well as in 2006 I generated an after-tax return of about 60% per year.

During my studies I gained placement experience in several well-known companies where I often did accurate and self-reliant research and analysis work and prepared exact decision memos. My academic focus on empirical economic research and on transition economics helped me a lot in developing strong analytical and quantitative skills by using the right tools.

My work experience and extracurricular activities as a member of the stock market group of the University of Berlin are the best proof that I am quick to learn, a strong team player, and also able to work effectively alone. I am eager to learn more about the position at Johnny’s Bank & Co., and I look forward to meeting with you. My curriculum vitae is enclosed.

Thank you for taking the time to review my application.

Yours sincerely,

Johnny Cash

Nobody an idea?
