Dear Human Resources,

I consider myself a self-starter, which requires minimal supervision. Having worked in the Mutual Fund and Securities industry for a well-known financial company for 4 years, in an intermediate level position, I have a proven track record. At the same time, I have attended night school to achieve my Information Systems Programmer/ Analyst Diploma in; C, C++, Java, (Java JSP/JDBC /VB ADO Active X), Visual Basic, SQL, and MS Access, and recently competed the PROGRESS 4GL V-9 Essentials tutorial. I am seeking a position in the information systems department.

I am a fast learner. Some of my past achievements include working closely with the Information Systems Department on the development and marketing of Mutual Fund Trading Systems, managing key Marketing/Systems Projects targeted towards the independent Financial Advisor, Broker, MFDA and IDA.

Given the chance I can exceed expectations. Past work experience includes the development and marketing of products such as Back Office Services, Equities and Fixed Income Trading Facilities, Core Business, Account Services, Registered Investment Products, and Group Investments. Other skills learned include creating and maintaining advertising campaigns throughout the country, conducting intensive industry research for the department, conducting design work, and providing supporting presentations for each product.

Please review the attached resume and feel free to contact me for further information. Company Personal Performance Appraisals are available upon request for your review.
