Dear Mr. Smith,
After a successful and satisfying career with Iowa’s largest independently owned financial institution, I recently moved to Florida and am looking forward to embarking on a new career here. I am taking the liberty of enclosing a resume describing my background. When you review it, you may notice that I am experienced in and capable of stepping into a variety of areas. Let me elaborate.
Project Management. A consistent thread through my career at the bank was that I was often given the responsibility to oversee projects ranging from implementing new software to managing a major consolidation of branches. I have proven that I have the expertise to manage people and processes, resulting in minimal disruption to clients and/or staff.
Administration. I believe I have succeeded in providing administrative and technical support to management and users at all levels within the corporation. I am skilled in assessing others’ needs and developing strategies to meet those needs. My communication skills are well developed, which facilitates my efforts.
Training and Supervision. My experience encompasses both. Because I had no formal technical training, I had to constantly self-teach and update my own skills. That gave me a unique perspective and helped me to become an effective trainer. As my resume indicates, I supervised a high-volume second-shift processing department.
In addition to the traits listed above, my performance reflects a dedication to my employer and a high degree of self-motivation. Performing beyond expectations is the norm for me. After you have examined my material, I hope you will contact me to arrange an interview. I am confident I can make significant contributions to your organization. I can be reached at home (555-555-5555) or on my cell phone (000-000-0000). Thank you for your time and consideration.
