    Hello Dear Sir,
    After my graduation from North South University, I had my internship in a reputed agency where I had worked in the data analysis department and now its been 1.5 years I have been working in a financial institution which give assurance , advisory and tax service. This is why I am very much interested in your organization to work with. Another impotent reason is you offer 5 days of work, i found that employees get motivated by legal vacation.
    You might know more about me if we meet.
    Have a good day.
