Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing in regard to the opportunity that is being provided by

Placement Services USA, Inc., of which I was made aware of recently

and would be like the opportunity to work and learn from a company

such as yourself.

I have done my Bachelors in Computer Engineering from BIT, Bangalore,

however two years into my Computer Engineering I decided that math

would be my field of interest, rather than Computer Science. As a

result of which I chose entirely math based electives in my final two

years, while still fulfilling my Computer Engineering requirements as

it was not possible to change majors two years in. It was for this

reason I chose to do Operations Research during my graduate studies.

As a part of my curriculum I have taken a number of courses which will

be essential and core in today’s business forum. As an Analyst I would

use me keen and sharp quantitative ability to perform the task given

to me and with my good social skills interacting with the clients will

not be something I will shy away from. I am well versed in the

happenings of the business world and with my assiduous work ethic and

thirst to learn I think I would make a fine addition to your

prestigious firm. I am highly motivated and make sure I meet deadlines

well in advance. As far as experience I worked as a quantitative

analyst and built business models using optimizing softwares as a part

of my internship over the summer of 2011 and presently. I gained an

immense amount of knowledge and learnt how to function effectively in

a business setting.

I am well aware that a large number of qualified candidates would have

applied for the position and I thank you for considering my


Thanking you,

Yours Sincerely,

Rohan Vijay Guthal

P.S I have put my resume in this mail as well.
