Dear Mr. Burns,
With the competition in the widget industry more intense than ever, it’s become increasingly clear that the businesses which survive will be those who can maximize the effectiveness of their business processes, policies and information systems.
That’s what I’d like to do as a business analyst for Widgets Inc.
In addition to certification by the International Institute of Business Analysis, I will bring to the position stellar communication skills and a 10-year track record of successful work within the industry.
As a consultant with Blidgets Inc., I helped the organization increase the efficiency of its manufacturing division, reducing down time by 5 % and increasing productivity by 8%. At Flidgets Manufacturing I guided the company through institution of a flexible work schedule, which reduced absenteeism by 15% and improved retention by 20%. For the Spidgets Group I re-designed the company’s reporting systems, eliminating costly over-runs in the Triplicate Department and saving the organization $75,000 annually.
Thanks to my familiarity with the industry and my systems-wide approach to problem solving, I am well positioned to help Widgets Inc. realize significant cost savings and take advantage of new market opportunities, such as the growing interest in a solar widget.
I would like to schedule an appointment with you to share my analysis of your strategic position and discuss how I might be of assistance in helping Widgets Inc. pursue its corporate vision.
My resume is enclosed. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.
