Dear hiring professional:

My attached resume is descriptive of the work I have accomplished over the last 22 years as an experienced Business Analyst. I am specialized in the areas of accounting, finance, and I/T fields. I have been successful in my roles to which I have many accomplishments. My expertise lies in my ability to develop innovative solutions for achieving a wide range of business development strategies, financial management objectives, and system implementations and optimizations.

Some of my key strengths include:

• Strong background in multiple areas such as system management process management, project management, Six Sigma, TPS, capital budget, fixed assets management, cost accounting and financial analysis.

• Adept in research, strategic planning, project and process management, systems engineering, web design, database management, training and development, and technical writing.

• Extensive experience in managing mission-critical projects and business development initiatives with the concentration to balance the requirements of functionality, quality, budget, and timeliness.

• Experience in corporate-wide projects and business agendas as a result of working with multiple plants, departments, and teammates/co-workers concurrently.

• Proven ability to successfully analyze and capture an organization’s critical business requirements, provide innovative and effective solutions, and implement change. I have reached a stage of my career where I am no longer contented in the roles that I have fulfilled. The jobs were no longer taking advantage of my best talents and gifts I possess. I have a strong desire to expand and diversify my knowledge base and skill set by changing industries and/or role. I believe I have much more to offer than what I have been allowed to do. I have the experience and I seek for my circle of influence and responsibility to be enlarged.

I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss this position and the significance I can bring to your organization. I am glad to talk via phone or Skype and I am willing to travel at my own expense to meet in person. My plan is to relocate to Tampa/St. Petersburg by February 2019 or sooner. Please know that I also have resources in place that would allow me to relocate within two to three weeks upon hiring. I am searching for a position that would be a perfect fit, so I am willing to move sooner for the right opportunity. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you. Best Regards,

Misha G. Lawson
