I am writing to apply for the position of Business Analyst in the Corporate Reporting and Administration department, as advertised in The ABC Careers section on the 30th April 2009.
My qualifications as a Business Analyst, in addition to my extensive experience in delivering situation development reports using the SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) Analysis framework, make me the ideal candidate for this position.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Business degree from Example University in 2004, after which I was accepted for professional membership of the Sample Business Analysis Association. My most recent position was Assistant Vice President of XYZ Industries, where I consistently delivered impressive situation development reports that were highly influential in whole-of-company strategy decisions
I regularly convened meetings regarding business development and opportunities, and I lead discussion with management on industry environment, macroeconomic conditions, and internal performance indicators. On several occasions I identified under-used resources and was able to direct the human resources department as to a more time and cost efficient use of personnel.
XYZ Industries requires strong policy leadership and I have 2 years’ experience in developing policy and procedures according to defined business frameworks. I have always established excellent working relationships with my colleagues and management, and I look forward to working closely with the Portfolio Manager to determine best practice in corporate reporting at XYZ Industries.
It is of great importance to me that my employer recognises the value I add to the business and I was pleased to learn of your Career Planner program, which provides clear goals and timelines for career progression with XYZ Industries.
I have attached my resume and I encourage you to contact me regarding my application.
