Free Economist cover letter example

Dear Mr. Pemberton,

I am writing to schedule an interview for the position of Economist. As an accomplished economist with a master’s degree in economics and five years of experience in making sense of complex economic trends, I think I’d be a great fit for your organization.

My professional experience includes 5 years as an Economist for the Economist Council, where I developed algorithms to efficiently analyze and make sense of economic data. I was able to excel at this position through my dedication to detail and expertise in both Statistics and Calculus, and I think I can use these qualities to be an asset to Glass Economic Analysis.

Here are my most relevant achievements and qualifications:

Earned a Master’s degree in Economics from Duke University

Developed algorithm designed to make sense of socioeconomic data

Used statistical software to forecast economic trends and presented findings to decision makers

Helped employer save $500,000 in expenses last year by creating an accurate economic forecasting model

Crafted economic articles to be published in Economic journals

I think my absolute dedication to the finest details and my ability to write scholarly articles based on my work are two qualities that separate me from candidates with similar qualifications. If you think I’d be a good fit for your organization, then I’d love to schedule an interview at your earliest convenience.
