Dear Mr. Shelby:
While scanning your website for employment opportunities, I came across a vacancy for a Stock Broker at Acme Securities. The financial world has been my home since I was in my early 20’s and I find it hard to detach myself from its web which is why I would like to offer my expertise in portfolio management by applying for this position.
From establishing new accounts to managing existing portfolios, I have done it all in the previous years. I have worked as an advisor and a trader simultaneously as I always keep abreast of financial news and have substantial contacts in the underground financial arena. My experience with popular trading software is quite diverse and my finger dexterity assists me in managing orders in an extremely time efficient manner. I am also familiar with all major stocks and remember most quotes like the back of my hand. Additionally, I am practiced in managing margin accounts, margin delinquencies and working short option reports.
Owing to the fact that I possess thorough understanding of stock exchanges worldwide and have strong research skills, I am quite confident that my resume will interest you. I will call you soon as a follow up on this letter and ask for a meeting. Please feel free to call me at (001) 444-4444 if you need any further information to make my application set complete.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
