Sample cover letter for Full Time position at APT


Business Consultant

Dear Hiring Manager,

I am writing this in response to your recent advertisement on company’s career portal for the position of ‘Business Systems Analyst’ at Bloomberg. My education in IT and information systems combined with my hands-on experience in different organizations will make me a proven asset of Bloomberg group. Observing your excellent repute in market I am impressed by the eclectic opportunities you offer to your employees. I believe that my combination of technical skills, consulting experience, and business sensibilities would serve Bloomberg well in this position.

My foundation is as a developer, in multiple languages, on many platforms. If the situation requires getting code done, I deliver high quality, clean, working code, quickly and correctly. I am comfortable with structured code, databases, OO programming and “specialty” languages such as might be found in workflow or business rule systems. I have every confidence that to the extend the position requires actual coding, I can sling code with the best.

To the extend the position requires analysis of business rules and processes, I have specific experience in two main areas that are closely related. On the business side, I closely worked with business clients to understand project requirements and define project scope. In that capacity, I was responsible for extracting functional requirements from end users, and translating those requirements into detailed requirements. On the technical side, I lead the requirements definition and acted as a liaison between the technology team and business customers.

On a more general level, I believe I bring the broad “soft” skills you can have confidence in with a candidate that will represent Bloomberg to your customers. I trust you would find me to be well-spoken, energetic, confident, and personable, the type of person on whom your customers will rely. I also have a wide breadth of experience of the type that gives you the versatility to place me in a number of contexts with confidence that the level of excellence you expect will be met. In most situations technical decisions must be made within the context of larger business constraints. Throughout my career I have strived to keep business issues in the forefront, be it as a developer implementing a software or an analyst, analyzing system and prioritizing enhancements to meet strategic objectives.

I greatly appreciate you taking the time to review my credentials and experience. I hope that you will find my experience, interests, and character intriguing enough to warrant a face-to-face meeting, as I am confident that I could provide value to you and your customers as a member of your team.
