Short Bio:

I have completed Masters in Development Economics from University of Sussex, Brighton, and I would like to apply my academic and professional skills for the growth of your organisation. During my undergraduate studies at Loyola College, Chennai, India; I was an active participant in co-curricular activities and have participated in out-reach programs as well as other programs organized by the Rotaract club in my college. I was elected the class representative during my under-graduation and as the class representative I was part of the organizing committee for the annual National Seminar conducted by the Economics Department in my college. Among other things, I was responsible to supervise sub-committees who were in charge of fund collection, as well as, organize the seminar hall. The program was a success and witnessed nationwide participation.
The dissertation for my master’s program related to migrant remittances and the factors influencing it. The dissertation was highly quantitative involving personal research and use of statistical package; STATA. I have used various tools of the package and conducted statistical tests to check the integrity of my regressions. The master’s program on the other hand has acquainted me with the latest developments in the field of development economics, by way of continuous referral of publications and journals. During my under-gradation I had a module in another statistical package; SPSS. I have an in depth understanding of the subject, thanks to the strong foundation given to me in my under-graduation and post-graduation.
As an intern in the finance department at the Export-Import Bank of India, Mumbai I had the opportunity to learn and gain knowledge regarding the functioning of the bank and its financial resources through the capital market. I was also able to gain valuable insight on decision-making skills, research and analysing, and work culture. This makes me an apt candidate for a position requiring an analytical mind and that demands researching and comprehending skills. Also, I have learned and put to use various economics concepts as well as courses which I have learnt in my under graduation and post graduation. I have good communication skills as well as the necessary inter-personal skills as required for an analyst.
My resume, which indicates the courses I have taken and work experience I have gained, is attached for your kind perusal. Currently I am looking for an opportunity to work on research projects and related job profiles. I have work experience of three years, working for State Bank of Travancore, an Associate bank of State Bank of India, as Assistant Manager, Pettah Branch, Kerala. I have had exposure in retail banking, international banking and corporate finance, which will be aid me in achieving your organisation’s goals. Working at your organisation would offer me a unique opportunity to acquire more technical skills, connect with clients and work independently and as a team player. I believe that if I am given an opportunity I would contribute significantly. I am willing to relocate and look forward to hearing from you.
