Robinson-Humphrey

THE FINANCIAL ANALYST POSITION

The following is an excerpt from a letter sent in January of 1997. Therefore, the two contacts mentioned may not still be at Robinson-Humphrey. Regardless, you should contact this strong regional investment bank to gather information for your cover letter and strategy. Address your initial inquiries to the "corporate finance analyst program recruiter".

Thank you for your interest in the financial analyst position. The position consists of a two-year program in the Corporate Finance Department of Robinson-Humphrey and provides an opportunity to participate in a variety of financial transactions in a wide range of industries. The principal responsibility of the analyst is to provide analytical support and includes preparing the financial models, analyses, and presentations required for the various transactions. Our recruiting process for the analyst program generally takes place during the fall and winter with hiring decisions made in February. Our new analysts then typically begin their employment the following July.

If you happen to be in Atlanta ... and would like to arrange an interview to further discuss the opportunities associated with the analyst program, please contact either Allen Moseley at (404) 266-6031 or myself at (404) 266-6951.
