Enclosed for your review, please find my resume of qualifications. As a dedicated, organized individual with extensive experience in production, EPSU pre-operational release and quality control, I feel well qualified for positions, which might be available within your organization. I have been proved capable in such areas as process analysis, foreign material prevention, and sanitation and audit compliance. My success, I believe, is directly related to my ability to identify and solve problems, and to my flexibility, which allows me to adapt and operate effectively in a diverse range of fields. In addition, I am a highly effective communicator and team builder. What my resume cannot fully reveal, however, is the drive, determination, and high energy level I possess and apply toward meeting and exceeding goals. This would best be accomplished in a personal meeting arranged at your convenience. I may be reached as indicated above and look forward to speaking with you. Best Regards, Betty B.
