MARKETING • ANALYSIS • DATA • APPLICATIONS
Dear Mr. Holloway:
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.
