Job-Seeker Sample Story-Based Cover Letter: #2
Dear [specific named individual]:
My comprehensive technology optimization experience in planning building integrating and deploying IT initiatives makes me exactly the kind of value-added employee you need to capably contribute to the ongoing success of your organization. My self-motivation and multi-tasking skills along with proficiency in a wide variety of hardware applications and networking protocols will enable me to significantly contribute to the [name of organization] team. Specifically I can offer the following to your bottom line:
- The experience that makes me a value-added and innovative solution-provider — yet at the same time a down-to-earth hands-on hard worker with finely honed troubleshooting skills;
- A solid and extensive understanding of the systems technology that drives today’s businesses as well as a broad understanding of business and productivity principles that effectively and seamlessly integrate technology with bottom-line profitability;
- The flexibility adaptability and solutions-driven mindset that enables me to delve into complex systems functionality issues.
Frequently called upon to provide technical engineering support for implementing and integrating applications to optimize systems I have consistently deployed my skills to provide attainable solutions. One of my most rewarding accomplishments was stabilizing a Fortune 500 company’s infrastructure by examining areas where the outages were occurring and then generating buy-in for implementing a preventive-maintenance schedule that proactively rebooted systems during scheduled downtimes and performing database cleaning during scheduled outages to reduce unplanned outages. My plan reduced the number of high severity incidents from multiple instances a week to less than one per quarter.
I look forward to providing superior systems-engineering expertise to manage and optimize your service operations and I am eager to assist with growing and mentoring your highly skilled work team.
I’d like to meet with you to discuss adding value to your organization — contributing systems stability incident reduction and more — as I’ve done for my previous employers. I’ll contact you in the near future to arrange a meeting. Should you wish to reach me before then please contact me using the information from this letterhead. I appreciate your consideration.
