Re: Business Analyst, Ref. #12345, Advertised on Monster
Dear Ms. Collins:
When I read ABC Corporation’s advertisement on Monster for a business analyst, I decided to apply immediately. Data-driven and highly analytical, I bring to the table 15 years of experience as a business analyst able to influence corporate growth strategies through fact-based, data-driven insights and analysis.
Since earning an MBA, I have worked as a business analyst for a mid-size supermarket chain, a financial services organization and a global pharmaceutical company. In each position, I planned and directed analysis of complex initiatives ranging from proposed mergers, acquisitions and divestitures to Six Sigma-based process improvements, organizational restructures and product launch proposals.
Areas of success include:
- Producingdetailed analytics and actionable reports that show key performance indicators, identify areas of improvement and facilitate informed decision making.
- Minimizing uncertainty, removing ambiguity and synthesizing large amounts of complex data into clear, concise and meaningful contexts.
- Leading system and process reengineering to capture improved efficiencies, fail-safe business continuity and multimillion-dollar cost savings.
- Conducting in-depth data mining, visualization and analysis to uncover and rectify process weaknesses and vulnerabilities, mitigate risk and resolve business and IT
As you can see, I am committed to being a positive driver of company goals and confident in my ability to improve ABC Corporation’s operational performance. I am available to interview anytime and look forward to speaking with you. You can call me at (555) 555-5555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
