As an individual who is constantly seeking to expand knowledge and utilize experience, I have developed the critical skill set that is outlined in your job [insert name of position].
As an expert in Human Resources with a broad-based background in financial management, I can offer you a unique skill set.

Additionally, I gained critical HR experience as a Legal Placement Consultant where I built successful relationships with more than 140 legal firms to fulfill all their personnel needs.
In my current position, I interacted regularly with trade support, technology, financial accounting and other infrastructure teams to ensure the accuracy of daily profit and loss (P&L) for up to 80 different books totaling $600 million annually of P&L. Also, I successfully researched, identified and corrected control gaps in the trading desk’s daily results.

Additionally, I have focused on building a team-oriented atmosphere and have led several internal activities which effectively increased employee morale.
