As you already know, my name is XYZ and I'm currently excited to be just a few months away from graduation and en route full-time employment within an established and innovative firm, such as yours.
I describe myself as motivated, analytical and curious. These three attributes sufficiently speak to my professional abilities as I have earned ample successes over the years with these attributes instilled in me. Throughout the course of my education at XYZ university, I have had countless opportunities to exhibit stellar leadership and academic achievements and these attributes certainly put me at an advantage because, 3000 hours of research work, 30 units of academic credit, regular poster presentations, a presidential role in student government and a minor in business management is definitely no walk in the park . My motivation has driven me to initiate a variety of ideas and programs within my organization. Most recently, I founded the XYZ platform where I ensure that YZX is done and hone my mentoring skills to interested individuals. This has also allowed me to serve the minority population within the organization by serving as a proxy for the servicing of their complaints and requests. Being a minority myself, I stand for diversity and inclusion and am grateful for the unparalleled opportunity that I have been given to progress and develop the cause while ensuring optimum satisfaction within the program.
I also serve as the Chair of /// within the organization of XYZ and this has put me in a position of healthy exchange of ideas and collaboration with my team and with the general population. I have been able to achieve exemplary communication, presentation, and negotiation skills through my constant chairing of meetings, communicating with event vendors and planning of program activities. During my tenure, my team and I achieved more than 95% student engagement in activities and general communication matters and introduced over five new empowering initiatives to the program. I believe my reinstating and reutilization of the XYZ communication platform also contributed to the widespread positive growth in correspondence.
I am passionate about impact. Growing up in the rural area of XYZ instilled in me an attitude of vigor and service because I know the impact that an effective solution and implementation can have on the general outcome of a situation. This is why consulting fits my goals. Together with the technical expertise that I have garnered during the course of my ABC degree which was predominantly team-based, to the buoyancy of transferable skills I have acquired, I believe that I would be able to achieve my highest potential within an organization that will allow me to openly contribute to the solution of complex yet exciting problems.
*can also expand on transferrable skills acquired from relevant team-based/consulting-like classes and how it fits with my personality and how it will allow me to parallel with the company's goals.
