Ms. Helena Chang
Thank you for your interest in my application for the Research Assistant position. I am keen to work at Company Z, in a position that will allow me to utilize my strong analytical, research, and accounting skills.
My enthusiasm for this position stems from my previous experience as a Research Assistant at Company A, where I developed a keen interest in research and problem-solving. My role there required me to gather and compile information from a variety of sources, including statistical data and was particularly rewarding when I was able to resolve issues for the lab manager and his employees.
The analytical and statistical skills I developed during this time will prove useful in the Research Assistant position, as Company Z is well known for utilizing an analytical approach to its business. Moreover, my experience managing a complex financial system at Company A, as well as performing financial duties such as reconciling inventory, credit card payments, and travel requisitions, will be an asset to the Research Assistant position.
I have also gained a strong grasp of communication and interpersonal skills through my work at Company A. I worked closely with the lab manager, who oversaw the lab’s daily operations. My interaction with the lab’s employees was critical to my success at Company A. I was able to resolve many difficult situations professionally and effectively, and I am confident that my proven performance record and ambition will be an asset to Company Z.
I am excited to apply my research and analytical skills in pursuit of a career with Company Z. I look forward to meeting you.
