Anytown, ST 12345
Dear Mr. Wilson:
I am very interested in the Senior Business Systems Analyst (Job ID 56789XY) position advertised at HotJobs.com as I
believe that my background and experience are just what you're looking for. I matched my specific qualifications to those
requested in your advertisement:
Sixteen years experience as a systems analyst and project manager. I have considerable experience as a project
manager developing technology solutions for major international corporations. A significant part of my work history has
involved acting in the capacity of on-site expert and lead consultant specializing in finding solutions for clients with unworkable,
inefficient or damaged systems. The solutions I implemented are outlined on my resume and have brought significant savings
to clients by reducing their operating expenses and increasing productivity.
Five or more years experience in sales support . I have a proven record of success in providing sales support to clients.
One recent project involved writing training and sales presentation guides as a part of a sales initiative offering simplified ERP
implementations for mid-sized companies. Another success was being able to retain a major client who was unhappy with an
e-procurement system that contained major flaws. I was able to resolve those problems to the client's satisfaction saving my
employer a major account.
Technical Skills: I have provided effective system architecture solutions; have worked with web portals and standard
ERP and SFA packages, as well as metric tools. I am highly proficient in using MS Project, am very experienced in change /
risk management, resource leveling, time / cost analysis, and multi-tasking. I have managed small and large projects in cross-
functional environments and am experienced in all stages of the system implementation life cycle.
Excellent communication skills. I am accustomed to leading and working with teams on diverse projects and interacting
closely with clients, many of whom are well-known international corporations. These projects have required a high degree of
team coordination and interaction to be completed on time and within budget.
College degree . I hold a bachelor's degree in Information Systems and Management and have completed post-graduate
courses in business administration and marketing.
I have enclosed a copy of my résumé that gives you more specific information as to my background, accomplishments,
and technical skills. I look forward to meeting with you in person to discuss my qualifications and ideas on developing a new
sales force automation tool for your company. Many thanks for your time and consideration.
