Dear Recruiting Representative,
As a senior at The University of Michigan studying economics I have begun to familiarize myself to a vast array of career options in the fields of finance and accounting. After researching, I believe the opportunities offered at Northern Trust are very impressive. I am very interested in being able to develop my professional skills, while being placed in a role I am qualified and strong in. Also being able to strengthen my credit analysis and banking industry knowledge is excellent for my long term goals. I am confident that my analytical ability and my leadership and communication skills will enable me to excel at your company. I ask that you consider me for the Rotational Development Program, Credit Track at Northern Trust Corporation

MBFS having trusted and believed in my abilities, I soon had the same levels of authority of many of my direct supervisors. Excelling in this role allowed me to quickly update many new hires and transfers. My time at MBFS greatly helped them move into phase 2 of the company wide Nexus project.
Leadership Ability and Communication Skills: My leadership and people skills have been greatly tested through my work and school experiences. Having traveled to Shenzhen, China and working for an oil and gas technology start up I quickly had to improve my communication skills. My strong interpersonal skills allowed me to meet dozens of Chinese professionals and successfully conduct productive work. Being thrown into a completely different work environment I was able to quickly adapt and greatly improve all of my professional skills. Also I have shown great initiative by having introduced a new company on to my own college campus with Campus Bellhops. I hired over 100 working college employees and marketed my company enough to successfully launch a profitable company. My contributions led to the successful market revenue of $17,247 during the 9-month period I worked with Bellhops. I showed leadership by coming up with new ways to create work for our employees and promote our brand further. I contacted and worked with many large real estate apartment companies to help their move in process, and make both parties benefit from our joint collaboration.
I am approaching my final year of school and will be available for work after graduation in May, 2016. I have taken the required accounting courses during my time here as well. Due to my experiences, ability to synthesize data and effectively lead teams to success, I would greatly appreciate being considered for an interview and the opportunity to further my career at Northern Trust. Please feel free to contact me any time at (xxx) xxx-xx28 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Thank you for your time and consideration; I look forward to hearing from you.
