Dear Hiring Manager,
I am writing this letter to apply for a career opportunity at Leap Ventures. After carefully reading about your company, I was pleased to discover that my academic achievements and work experience precisely meet your requirements.
I am a Team Leader at D.A.S. (audit and tax office) in Beirut. I was previously a Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) analyst trainee at BNP Paribas in Lisbon with a Master of Science in Finance from Nova School of Business and Economics. During my training, I was responsible for conducting research on potential transaction opportunities and performing strategic and financial studies on sectors and companies for the French Domestic Markets. Furthermore, I assisted the team in buy and sell-side pitch presentations as well as valuation using models such as DCF, trading and transaction multiples. In addition, I was an intern at BankMed in Lebanon in the corporate department where I was responsible for analyzing financial statements and documenting credit packages and cycle with attention to details under the pressure of tight deadlines My teamwork skills and enthusiasm to learn were essential to my success and performance during my trainings. These experiences provided me with a detailed knowledge of financial institutions and have reinforced my interest in pursuing a financial and advisory career.
My outstanding academic record differentiated me from others since I was granted merit scholarships during both of my degrees and was placed on the high distinction list.
I believe that I would succeed in the professional and motivating environment of Leap Ventures and that my strong analytical skills, work ethic and passion would make me a valuable asset to your company. I would be very grateful for a chance to prove myself. Thank you for taking the time to consider my application.
Looking forward to meeting you to discuss a potential collaboration.
