Re: IT Director Job
For this job, you’re seeking a qualified professional with 3 or 4 key ingredients: management, networking, programming, and systems development experience … am I right? I’ll outline how my background “hits the bullseye,” so you can easily see I’m the perfect candidate for this job.
First, I possess in-depth experience as a manager and supervisor. In my current job, serving as a team leader, I supervise over two-dozen installation technicians. I guide and assist each tech through technical aspects of the installation process, ensuring each customer receives top-quality service and is given the support needed — whether it applies to PC support, networking, programming, telecommunications, and data communications. My management experience stems from the early 1990s and continues up to my current job.
Secondly, the job posting also mentions programming is a necessity, and someone possessing “Lotus Notes/Domino is highly desirable” … these match me perfectly! I’ve been involved in the programming side, using C and other programming languages for 13 years, plus the use of Lotus Notes for desktop applications.
Lastly, you’re seeking a candidate with intricate knowledge of technical operations. Mentioned above, I presently serve as team leader for Sotec and I supervised the teams for Lucent. Whether managing the team or handling internal administrative processes, I possess extensive knowledge and I’ve done a great job overseeing a technical operation.
Matching every facet of your job description, I’m a perfect match for this job.
To discuss my qualifications further, or to answer questions, call me at (XXX) XXX-XXXX or (XXX) XXX-XXXX. I look forward to discussing this opportunity with you.
Thanks for giving my request your consideration.
