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.

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
