My interest is in analysis and I am looking to get into a graduate programme that will allow me to progress to this role. I have a year’s experience in a stockbroking firm but they did not have an internal analyst division where I could progress to. I have a Bachelor of commerce degree in accountancy which is good basis for analysis but I furthered my studies to include investments. I have an Advanced diploma in financial markets and will be writing my CFA level 11 exam in June 2018. I am hard working and I always take initiative, using what I have to do better. Through my involvement with toastmasters, student societies and tutoring throughout varsity, I have nurtured the soft skills that I think are needed in corporate. I am a fast learner and I adapt easily. This graduate role is the perfect opportunity to start and apply what I have learned in theory also hoping to add value to my work through completing the CFA charter. I have a financial markets practitioner occupational certificate through the South African Institute of Stockbrokers where I had to complete a portfolio management and trading and settlements exam. These practical exams and the experience I have had have helped me understand the stockbroking and asset management functions. Hoping that my application will be considered. Your sincerely Tamoledi Makoti
