Dear Ms. Cooper,
I am writing to apply for the position of Information Analyst now available with The Raymond Corporation.
I have earned a bachelor’s degree in statistics and I am working on my masters. I have five years of experience working in data management where I gained extensive knowledge in analyzing data and using this information to create informational reports. I also have extensive knowledge of the data management systems used in this profession and of a wide variety of sophisticated computer software packages.
My qualifications also include a strong knowledge of computer systems and a complete understanding of the organizational structures of the data being analyzed. I have experience crosschecking data for accuracy and using this information to forecast and make projections that will help your company determine what steps to take with future investments and projects.
I have excellent verbal, writing and reading communication skills with the ability to converse with others with and without technical skills. I also have outstanding critical thinking and problem solving skills, which are needed to troubleshoot and solve problems when they arise.
I am self-motivated and enjoy working alone to accomplish my goals and complete projects but I also have the interpersonal skills needed to work as a team when necessary. I welcome the opportunity to put my expertise to good use with your company and I hope that you will consider me for this position.
I am available most anytime for an interview and you can reach me by calling (555)-555-5555. I hope to meet with you soon.
