Dear Ms. Kirby:

Upon review of your posting for a Senior Business Analyst, I felt compelled to submit my resume for your consideration. As a skilled and highly analytical professional with 17 years of experience analyzing processes, implementing solutions, and leading large-scale projects to achieve organizational goals and business requirements, I am confident that I will significantly contribute to the objectives of your company.

In my most recent position I was promoted to Senior Business Analyst for Future Forward Financial within three years of hire. During the six years that I held this role, I analyzed complex business requirements and performed process analyses of customer activities to determine alternative business solutions and process improvement opportunities. From reviewing test cases and conducting stakeholder interviews to liaising between cross-functional departments and spearheading projects, I have acquired a breadth of experience and knowledge that will allow me to excel as a senior member of your team.

Consider the following highlights of my qualifications:

  • Piloting junior analysts through major projects while overseeing multimillion-dollar budgets, meeting project-defined milestones, and delivering analytical results for finance-, HR-, and inventory-related business areas.
  • Identifying problem areas and performance gaps to mitigate—or eliminate—issues and maintain compliance with project management framework standards and procedures.
  • Analyzing a full range of business concerns, needs, and requirements to identify and recommend processes, products, and solutions to meet goals and objectives.
  • Translating business user concepts and ideas into understandable and comprehensive business requirements and design documents.
  • Collaborating with relationship managers, IT developers, and upper management to prioritize workflow and deliver projects on time.
  • Providing essential team leadership and support through effective interpersonal, organizational, and leadership abilities.
  • Holding an MBA in Finance from Colorado State University.

With my record of success leading teams in analyzing business processes and executing projects, I am positioned to vastly exceed your expectations for this role and substantially benefit your organization. I look forward to discussing the position, and what I can offer you, in further detail.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Jill M. Sowell
