Re: Project Manager, Job Ref. #12345, Advertised on Monster

Dear Ms. Washington:

I was excited to read ABC Company’s posting for a project manager. I offer 11 years of experience executing project delivery for multimillion-dollar, strategic client projects involving:

  • Ecommerce website design and development
  • ERP systems development
  • Systems interface design and deployment
  • Customer service delivery
  • Order fulfillment and payment processing
  • Transportation and logistics

Most recently as project manager for XYZ Company, I delivered results such as:

  • $23.5M in cost savings as lead of an enterprise-wide IT productivity program and development of a multi-year strategic roadmap enabling more informed decision making.
  • 10% revenue boost (YTD) as leader of a $2M, enterprise-wide implementation of business intelligence applications for DEF Stores, which also facilitated supply chain decisions, improved store configuration, enhanced customer satisfaction and increased promotional sales.
  • Management of a complex implementation of Oracle ERP, sun-setting SAP environment and seamlessly integrating a new platform without interrupting business operations. 

Reinforcing my project and team management experience are credentials that include Project Management Professional (PMP) designation, multiple certifications (Six Sigma Green Belt, PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) and Microsoft Dynamics NAV), a BS in Computer Information Systems and an in-progress MBA.

Blending business, technical and people management skills to plan and execute IT projects, I am confident that I would contribute to successful IT project completions for ABC Company. You can reach me at (555) 555-5555 or gs@somedomain.com to set up a meeting. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

 

Georgia Smith, PMP
