Dear Mr. Flanton,
I recently graduated with a bachelors degree in economics and am looking for a full-time position in the investment banking field. I am extremely interested in beginning my career at Mock and Biddle. The investing history of Mock and Biddle, especially its stability during the 1980s junk bond and LBO craze, was the subject of my undergraduate thesis.
I feel I have much to offer in Mock's drive to involve a younger generation of investors. As the founder of the Oberlin Students Investment Group, I managed the capital of 31 of my peers, making 9 percent annual return over a three-year period, and raising the amount of capital from an initial $8,000 to $54,000 my senior year, all while maintaining a 3.8 average in my field. I want to apply that vision and multitasking ability at Mock and Biddle.
Mock and Biddle is my first choice for my entry into the professional arena, and I believe that my employment would be highly beneficial to Mock and Biddle as well. As co-founder Charles Anderson said in his 1962 commencement speech at Brown University, "There is no more sound investment than youth."
Thank you very much for your time and consideration, I look forward to discussing with you the ways I can contribute to Mock and Biddle's future.
