RE: Project Portfolio Management Consultant

Dear hiring manager,

If you are seeking a dynamic team member with distinctive people skills matched with tech savvy, please consider me for your Project Portfolio Management Consultant Position. I am a versatile Management Professional who is knowledge-hungry, trainable and has a relentless drive to succeed. With this, backed by my professional experience and education, I would be a strong contributor as a Project Portfolio Management Consultant at UMT Consulting Group.

I am currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Management Information Systems, concentrated in Enterprise Systems, and have an existing Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, concentrated in General Management. Through my education, I have acquired applicable knowledge of Database Management and Applications, Business Communications, and Computer Applications and Systems. Going forward in my studies, I will be building my ERP, EPM domain and enterprise project/application knowledge, allowing me to gain an understanding of broader technology methodologies. Professionally, I have over 5 years of experience in driving relationship development, revenue growth and new business across the government (State), staffing, healthcare and financial services industries. A few of my successes are below:

=> Currently provide service excellence in a new office for one of Florida’s Regional Workforce Boards, identifying client’s employment needs and developing recommendations for them in the context of the overall engagement

=> Managing over $1.5M in account portfolios and generating $100K+ in sales revenue
