Shveta Cover Letter Critique Request
I would like to express my interest in an opportunity with Acumen Fund. Throughout my job search and conversations with people working in the field or researching on it, I have come to respect the entrepreneurial nature that characterizes the firm and its employees.
I am confident that the Fund team's values and objectives would highly complement my own strengths and enthusiasm. I would like to be considered for positions which would involve fundamental researching skills and knowledge in the development field as well as basic project planning and implementation.
I was impressed to learn of Fund's achievements in the clearly categorized fields of health, housing, energy and water across India, Pakistan, East and South Africa.
Innovative and exciting approaches of the firm's investments, its criteria and instruments, convinced me that the Fund is the ideal environment to begin my microfinance career.
Evidence of my leadership and analytical skills can be seen in my responsibilities of a executive position holder in a student organisation (AIESEC) and my commitment to my academics.
My educational background in business and political economy, combined with my previous experiences at UBS and Technopak Advisors (management consultancy), has been excellent preparation for a career with Fund. It gives me adequate knowledge about development and finance.
Please review the enclosed resume and consider my application for opportunities available at the New York or the Hyderabad office. I look forward to exchanging ideas with you concerning a career at the Acumen Fund and the positive contributions I would offer as a member of your organization.
Thank you for your consideration.
