Dear Mr./Ms. LastName,

I am interested in finance and I would like to inquire about positions at ABD Company. ABD's Professional Leadership Program has been recommended to me as one of the most highly regarded corporate finance training programs in the industry. I would be interested in learning more about the company and about available opportunities.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting from XYZ University. In addition, I completed two internships focusing on finance and spent a summer work for DEF Corporation at its New York City headquarters.

My resume, which is enclosed, contains additional information on my experience and skills. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss the leadership program with you and to provide further information on my candidacy. I can be reached via my cell phone, 555-555-5555 or by email at bbbb@gmail.com.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you about this exciting opportunity.
