Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
As a recent graduate with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from the University of XXX, I am writing to express my interest in your Business Analyst opening. I have completed internships that focused on marketing and data management over the course of earning my degree. Additionally, I studied abroad in Spain and Germany to gather an understanding of international markets.
Your job ad said that you required an understanding of Software X, Y, and Z. During my summer internship in 2017, I gathered business requirements from multiple departments to assist in the selection of a new CRM vendor. The company selected the software you use and I spent time training on the software and helping others learn it as well.
Your ad also stated that you need a person who can handle press releases regarding product updates and launches. Because one of my internships focused on marketing, I have drafted multiple press releases and several pieces of marketing collateral to promote new product launches, company events, and store openings.
During my overseas studies, I improved my fluency in German and Spanish, so I am well equipped to work for your U.S. and Mexico operations. I believe my understanding of European markets will also help me in this role.
Confident I will be successful in this position and make a positive impact on your business, I’d like to offer my resume for your consideration. If you would like to schedule a meeting to review my qualifications, I will make myself available at your convenience. I appreciate your consideration and hope to hear from you soon.
Christopher P. Smith
