Dear Mr. Carr:

Your Associate Consultant position demands the skills, aptitudes, and work ethic that I have developed as a scholar-athlete at Tufts University. A recent graduate with a double major in Economics and International Relations, I am eager to leverage my internship and academic experience to contribute to your bottom line.

Based on my understanding of your position and your organization, here are the aspects of my background that seem most relevant to meet your needs:


Analytical thinking and creative problems-solving skills, cultivated through a rigorous curriculum expanded beyond my majors to include computer science;


“Real world” experience with Capital Advisors Group, developing spreadsheets for portfolio management, quarterly performance templates for clients, and PowerPoint presentations for external and internal use;


Successful research and writing for coursework, as evidenced by 3.57 GPA and numerous academic honors; and


Leadership, collaboration, and conflict resolution skills, based on membership with the Tufts Women’s Basketball team.

As you seek a candidate who can adapt and contribute to your different research and consulting teams, I hope you will consider my credentials. I can be contacted at 617-552-1212 or

Thank you for your consideration.
