Ms. Helena Chang
My name is XYZ and I am pleased to apply for Director in Business Operations position at Company Z. I have spoken with several members of the Business Operations team and was each time impressed by their acuity and passion for both establishing business connections and their firm. I’ve developed a strong interest in providing incredible service to clients across many diverse customer demographics and have in-depth experience doing so.
My interest in Business Operations and Sales developed during an internship at Company A where my duties forced me to learn and apply proper analysis and accounting procedures in order to organize and grow the company’s complex business pipeline. During this time, I designed a custom accounting system that efficiently and accurately recorded the coming year’s fiscal activity. This provided me with a strong understanding of practical accounting theory and applied internal control. Over the course of the position, I interacted regularly with our clients and worked as part of a team in the club’s executive board, forecasting cash flows and preparing quarterly budgets and reconciliations. My accounting and time management skills will be instrumental to my success at Company Z.
Prior to my work at Company A, I was able to apply my business operations experience to Company Z, where I was given the opportunity to assist the company’s Business Operations department and COO in their fiscal year-end closing and annual internal and external third-party audits. It was here that I found my passion for understanding business operations. I enjoyed understanding how each employee’s work helped accomplish the organization’s goals because I was able to find ways to perform my own tasks more efficiently to ensure departmental success.
My passion for this field and desire to understand clients and their complex businesses and circumstances align with Company Z’s approach to understand a client’s business, risks, and internal controls in order to provide the most effective sales procedures and methodologies.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to discussing this position further.
