Dear Sir, I am writing to express my interest in the position of Unit Business Manager Senior for the Brandeis School of Law. I have enclosed my resume for your consideration. A review of my most current and past experience will confirm my ability to perform this position with a high level of confidence and capability. I have been functioning as a Business Manager at the University of Louisville in the Office of Communications and Marketing for over ten years. During my twenty year tenure at U of L, I have had the opportunity to observe and manage the transition and merger of Purchasing and Accounts Payable from Legacy System to PeopleSoft Financials, Human Resource and Budgeting Modules and implementation of a "paperless" purchasing process to name a few. Throughout my career, I have exhibited strong managerial accounting skills in both cost avoidance and cost saving. I have also been instrumental in the training of other personnel in procurement so as to maximize, departmentally, every facet which reflects the bottom line within the organization. To date, I enjoy working with my organizational and professional affiliates which affords me every opportunity to continue the enhancement of my professional and developmental skills. The prospect of working for such a highly regarded division as the Brandeis School of Law is exciting for me, both professionally and personally. I look forward to meeting with you, in person, to discuss my qualifications and to learn more about the position. Sincerely, To utilize my experience managing purchasing, accounts payable, and managerial accounting skills and providing administrative support within an institution of higher education.
