RE: Director of Project Management Office, PMO – 9825, March 11, 2014

To Whom it May Concern,

As an accomplished information systems professional, I read with interest your posting for a new Director of Project Management Office. My experience, with roles as both project and program manager, aligns well with the qualifications you are seeking. I am certain I have what you need and that I would make a valuable addition to your company.

With over 18 years’ experience in global IT development and delivery, I am accomplished in diverse functions including planning and leading system implementations, determining cost savings, interfacing with C-level executives, giving presentations, and contract negotiations. I am adept at bridging the gap between technical and non technical persons and have a goal-driven, high-performing nature.

Highlights of my achievements include:

  • Achieved $1.2M in operational cost savings over a three year time period through efforts to streamline operations, identify new solutions, and renegotiate existing vendor contracts.
  • Improved system availability to 99.99% and customer satisfaction to 100% over three years by developing, implementing, and monitoring service level agreements with staff and customers, ensuring compliance and quick resolution of specific issues.
  • Achieved $1 M in operational savings by standardizing development and operational best practices that were leveraged across existing and new clients.
  • Saved $500,000+/year by designing and leading technical development of custom HR solution that provided a one-stop-shop for employees to access employee and benefits information.

My project management roles have prepared me for this position by giving me a foundation in handling a wide range of issues and objectives. I can quickly break down goals, establish scopes, and effectively manage projects through completion while exceeding expectations across the board. I know how to mediate conflicts, establish productive relationships, and root out inefficiencies to ensure optimal performance for the entire team.

Please review my attached resume for additional details regarding my expertise and career achievements. I would welcome an opportunity for an interview and I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience so we can discuss the position and your needs in detail.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

John Johnson

Dear Mr. Lebowski

I am writing to apply for the IT Project Manager position at Systems+, as advertised on Linkedin.com. I am confident that my 3 years of solid experience and diverse capabilities in project management make me an ideal candidate to successfully fulfill this position.

During my time working as a Junior IT Project Manager at XConnect, I was the second-in-charge to the Project Manager in leading a medium-sized development team. I was charged with the responsibility of helping oversee a range of critical projects from conception to delivery.

I was commended by my manager for demonstrating strong skills in: proactively managing important and time-sensitive projects; developing innovative solutions to critical problems; balancing stakeholder expectations with those of the company; and working collaboratively with other team members to establish an efficient and effective systems of operation.

In my time at XConnect, I was noted for having achieved the following:

  • Executing a number of highly profitable projects with budgets over $200,000
  • Working with my team to manage the accounts of prestigious international brands and clients
  • Strong understanding of statistics, quality improvement techniques, FMEA and RCA
  • Successfully contributing to Q & A testing, product SOW, integration and user documentations.

Furthermore, I have strong academic background to ground my work. After completing my Bachelor of Information Technology Management at the University of Minnesota, I went on to score in the top 2% in my Master of Information Systems at the University of Maryland. I plan to draw on these methodologies at Systems+ to effectively complete project scheduling, issue tracking and resource management tasks.

I believe that the above qualities and experiences would make me a valuable addition to your company. If there is any more information you would like me to provide, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Sylvia Swanson
