SAMPLE COVERLETTER FOR FINANCE
My name is ______ and I’d like to share my sincere desire to be an accounting major at the Eller College of Management for the Fall semester of 2015. I’d like to join the Eller group with a major in finance in order that I can grow professionally and have a positive impact on the school as both a scholar and leader, and learn new financial skills. After a thorough self-assessment I am convinced having been involved in different student organizations have helped me build skills which are directly related to the fundamentals that define being an Eller financial student such as the diverse array of decision-making and analytical skills. Furthermore I have a deep desire to develop my public speaking, interviewing and interpersonal skills. I am looking forward to learning from colleagues and professors during my time at Eller.
In my most recent role as the recording secretary of my Sorority Gamma Phi Beta, I was personally responsible to record the attendance of more than 250 women, keeping track of chapter minutes, and preparing the day of recruitment, Day 4, Preference. Through the various positions I held, I’ve learned organizational skills and developed effective communication skills through team-based efforts. As a sales associate at Pretty Please Boutique, I was in charge of balancing various events, customers and deadlines, all while working in a high-energy, fast-paced setting. I gained proficiency with using the Microsoft Office Suite putting together employee schedules, local advertising and a streamlined inventory log. Furthermore, I gained creativeness by creating Eller’s initial website as part of the larger task to help the newly-established business build a lasting relationship with its customers. As I am just beginning the pledge process within Delta Sigma Pi Professional Business Fraternity I’ve already realized the importance of effective time management. This is crucial to success in Eller.
I am convinced that as a finance student at the Eller College of Management I will bring the greatest worth to the University of Arizona. I have proven that I have a strong determination, a fervent determination to learn, as well as excellent communication and finance abilities. If given the opportunity I believe I’ll succeed in the work-oriented culture at the university, as the culture is similar to my current work and goals. I’ve attached my resume for you to review and further outlines my academic and professional accomplishments. Thank for your consideration and time and I am looking forward to getting in touch with you in the near future.
