I have spent the better part of this past year studying at California State University Fullerton towards a Bachelor in Business Administration of Finance so I can achieve my goal of helping my parents enjoy the rest of their lives. I have always been a numbers person, with exceptional mathematics and computer skills. I am fluent in a number of data management systems and software, including Excel, MySQL, and SPSS. Statistical significance, A/B testing, and data-driven optimization are the rhythm of the drumbeat I march to.
As much as I am into data manipulation, it is the analysis of data that really gets me going. I like to explore the relationships between numbers, and translate digits and spreadsheets into stories. In the age of big data, these stories become actionable solutions and strategies for businesses, and I take pride in my ability to make data accessible to both executive decision-makers and frontline sales staff.
On a personal level, I am detail-oriented, organized, and precise in my work; the only thing cleaner than my room are my spreadsheets. I have strong communication skills with a knack for clear and illuminating presentation. I am comfortable on my own facing the numbers, but I really enjoy being part of a motivated team of smart people.
Please find my contact information at the top of this letter, as well as on my enclosed resume. I appreciate your time spent reading this letter, and look forward to connecting in the future.
