Dear Review Committee,

I am writing in response to the open position of Entry Level Data Scientist with Save Soft, Inc. I believe your organization seeks an individual with a critical-thinking problem-solving background, solid knowledge of statistical methods and analysis to effectively communicate data generated information, and ability to collaborate with a variety of individuals and groups to achieve your organization’s obligations. I believe I have the qualities you seek to be part of your organization.

I have 15 years of education and experience in scientific research and collaborating with collegial and stakeholder groups to achieve common goals. My professional and academic experience in science and statistical analysis can provide a well-defined professional focus to your data analyst position. From my experience, the principle objective to data analysis is the distillation of information to develop an accurate perspective that assists the information recipient’s decision-making judgement.

I am a trustworthy self-motivated detail-oriented individual with excellent organization and time management skills, ability to estimate and meet project timelines in multi-disciplinary environment, flexibility to adapt to projects of differing scope and changing priority, and ability to make decisions and solve problems using a systematic analytical approach. I have period of unemployment from 01-2013 to the current date resulting from completion of my last research contract. Consequently, I began studying statistics at Iowa State University to enhance my career potential with the goal toward a M.S. My goal is to work for an organization with challenging career opportunities and when such a career opportunity materializes then I will continue my statistical education on-line. In conclusion, I believe I have the work ethic, ambition, and leadership you are seeking in an individual to become part of your organization.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss this position and look forward to hearing from you regarding an interview.

Thank you.
