am writing to express my interest in the Junior Researcher in Globalization and
International Business position posted on the New York University Stern School
of Business Web site. I am completing my senior year at Marist College and will
graduate with a Bachelor of Science in International Business and a paralegal certificate
in May 2018.
believe strongly in the need for international intervention, especially in
today’s society. The work that Professor Pankaj Ghemawat delivers integrates
law with globalization and ignites conversation for business academics. New
York University’s Center for Globalization of Education and Management would
provide me with the best opportunity to broaden my interest in the
international business field. This position would allow me to use my analytical
and research skills to organize and assess that data for future research
efforts. It is NUY’s reputation and persistent search to amend public policy
that makes me eager to join your team.
my undergraduate career at Marist College, I have learned many lessons through
academia and two campus work study positions. My research assistant role at the
Marist College Institute for Public Opinion introduced me to data related to political
issues and their effect on society. During my time as a resident assistant at
Marist College, I was presented with challenges that forced me to strategically
approach situations. Further, my interest in international affairs heightened
during a model United Nations trip to the United Nations Department of Peace
followed by a briefing conducted by the Ambassador for the Latvian Mission to
the UN. These experiences have reinforced my strong interest in global affairs
and business, and inspired my goal for a career in law.
I have maintained my scholarships each semester while working 20-25 hours per
week. My involvement in activities outside of the academic realm has strengthened
my interpersonal skills and organizational skills. As a Coxswain for the Marist
College Women’s Crew team, I executed strategy and facilitated communication
between rowers, while recording data pertinent for success, without any prior
experience. I strive to learn and grow as an individual in order to contribute
to the betterment of society.
you for your consideration and I look forward to the opportunity to speak with
you about my candidacy in greater detail.
