Dear Hiring Professional:

In response to your search for a strong technical team member, I bring more than 15 years of experience at IBM. As a Senior Development Manager, I provided the technical, planning and operational management on several key projects for the company. Developing and launching complex computer systems is my expertise.

I am an extremely creative and innovative leader who is always looking for new ways to approach a project. Many of my achievements are due to my ability to create and maintain rapport with individuals-peers, subordinates and management. These qualities, coupled with a drive to think strategically and excellent technical ability, have given me a track record of success. Some areas I can help you with include the following:

  • Project management: setting objectives, critical path planning and allocation of resources
  • Planning and coordinating test strategies and release analysis
  • Problem resolution and creative solutions
  • Hiring, interviewing and training
  • Budget development, administration and tracking
  • Creation and presentations to management regarding project status

I am eager to relocate to your city within the next year and plan to be in town next month interviewing for positions at several companies. I would love to meet with you then and discuss your company's needs and my relevant experience in greater detail. Please call or email me if you would like to meet.


Mather Smith
