418 E. College Ave. #40 State College, PA 16801 October 16, 2000 Human Resources 82 Devonshire Street, Z 2 F2 Boston, MA 02109-3614 Dear Human Resources Manager: I am writing to inquire about a position as an Equity Research Associate, job code IMEQ, which was advertised on your website. I am very interested in researching equities and my analytical and quantitative skills are well defined. My eagerness to learn about investment management from one of the best investment companies in the world and my desire to become a CFA in the future, makes becoming an Equity Research Associate very appealing to me. The coursework I have taken at The Pennsylvania State University has given me the necessary background of analytical and quantitative skills that is needed to become a successful research associate. Also, a company analysis I performed on Amazon.com allowed me to obtain a glimpse of what a research associate will do with their time. I myself am an active investor in both stocks and mutual funds, one being your own Fidelity Small Cap Selector. I believe this shows that I am not afraid of taking risks, which is a necessary character trait in the investment management business. The challenge of upholding the reputation of Fidelity by becoming an employee is something that would appeal to me very much. I will bring an enthusiasm to the workplace and will be a very reliable worker, as my perfect attendance in high school can attest . I would like the opportunity to speak further with you in an interview if you feel I am qualified for the position. I can be reached at (814) 861-8103 or by e-mail at sbg124@psu.edu. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Shane Gilliatt Shane Gilliatt Enclosure Shane B. Gilliatt School Address: 418 E.
