My name is Lisa Floyd. For the past three years, I’ve been running my own company, [Current Employer], in London. The time I’ve spent being my own boss has probably been similar to most people’s experience with running their own business – rewarding, frightening, exciting, and a chance to learn new things. However, I feel that the time has come for me to accept a new challenge in my career. With this in mind, I was very excited to read about the data analyst position at [Company Name].
I’m confident that I can meet, and even exceed, the expectations you have on your new data analyst.
I would point to three factors in particular that I feel make me the right person for the position as data analyst.
The first would be my experience. During my three years at [Current Employer] I have acquired a solid foundation of knowledge in evaluating changes and updates to source production systems – these are skills that I look forward to developing and putting to good use as a member of your team at [Company Name].
Secondly, I would like to highlight my education. I have a Master’s degree in computer sience from University of Oxford. Aside from gaining the requisite knowledge taught in my classes, I also feel that I have really developed my ability to learn and integrate new skills and information quickly.
Last, but certainly not least, I think that my personal traits and abilities make me the right person for this job. I have good analytical abilities and perform at my best when I am able to work on problem-solving, and I know that my desire to always deliver high-quality work, regardless of the situation has been appreciated by my previous employers.
Furthermore, I am motivating, and sociable in my professional role.
I hope that this brief presentation has given you an idea of who I am, and what I can bring to [Company Name]. I feel strongly that I would be able to meet your expectations, and look forward to being called to an interview so that I might introduce myself further.
