With over 11 years of experience in leading student organizations and non-profit groups and two years of top-tier strategic consulting experience prior to 4 years with Yahoo!'s corporate strategy group, I am well-qualified for a corporate strategy or business development position that is positioned for rapid advancement towards upper management.  I specialize in working in a team environment with colleagues who are driven and who also enjoy challenging tasks and projects.  Furthermore, my experience in strategic business consulting has allowed me to develop strong analytical and problem-solving abilities that have prepared me for the next step in my career.

My best qualities in addition to my leadership and analytical skills are the depth of experience and understanding I have in marketing, business development, strategic thinking, and customer service, my ability to listen and grasp meaning, my attention to detail and hard-working attitude, and my personal integrity.  Also, my study abroad experience has given me the ability to see market conditions and business situations from an outsider's perspective.  I feel I would make an excellent analyst at a wide variety of firms.
