Letters of Recommendation


To whom it may concern,

I am a senior majoring in Political Science at Purdue University, seeking a career in the banking industry upon graduation in May, 2011. The banking industry is looking for a professional individual who is honest, smart, and articulate; qualities that I possess and can demonstrate.

I am a hardworking person.I have been employed since I was 14, putting my earnings in a saving account for college so that I could provide for myself with little debt while pursuing my academic interests.I also kept a job while being a student, displaying an ability to be flexible and multi-task.I have been entrusted with much responsibility in my employment, creating a rapport of honesty and an excellent work ethic.My academic success has not at all been sidetracked by my professional or extracurricular activities either.I have maintained an outstanding grade point average, achieving Dean’s list every semester and being accepted into Pi Sigma Alpha, the Political Science National Honor Society.

In this portfolio, you will find evidence of my work and academic success, as well as examples of my communication skills in my writing samples.I believe that this portfolio effectively demonstrates the assets that I can bring to serve you.
