Dear Mr. Smith,
Promoted 11 times in 21 years by Nelson International Technologies, I have an extensive background in information systems and project-based work. Since leaving traditional employment in 2003, I’ve been challenged by entrepreneurial ventures, career exploration, and civic work.
Enclosed is a resume detailing my strengths and abilities, with particular emphasis on marketing and technical skills. Other relevant areas of knowledge and expertise include the following:
- Leadership, consulting, and relationship building
- Strategic analysis and creativity
- Speech writing, presentations, instruction, and training
- Data synthesis and research
- Applications for academic learning approaches
- Marketing programs and client relations
Achievements, awards, and recognition attest to my ability to think “out of the box,” apply theory, test concepts, and contribute to breakthrough ideas. Leading edge … change-oriented technology …resourceful … self-motivated—these are qualities describing my style and approach to whatever I do.
An interview would provide the opportunity to exchange information, address issues, answer questions, and determine applicant suitability. I am most interested in discussing your company’s goals and needs and will call within the next week to schedule a time to meet. I look forward to speaking with you.
