Dear Sir or Madam,

I have 4 years of IT experience, including technical and leadership roles both in the US and Europe: Banking, Manufacturing, Service and Television. I have a dual Masters Degree in “Computer and Information Science” and “Management Information Systems” from the US and France, and specialized in management of innovative projects.

I graduated spring 2003 from a 2-year work-study program at Atwood Transportation Systems in Bellevue WA. I worked as a Business Analyst/Project Manager while taking a Master of Science Degree at Gannon University, and graduated with academic distinctions.

I am seeking a long-term commitment to further develop my leadership and business skills working on medium/large scale projects with high impact for the business. I will provide strong leadership, ideas, and technical expertise. I am confident that my combination of international work experience and solid education will benefit your organization.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you require further information.

I look forward to hearing from you soon,

Yours faithfully,
