Sample business analyst cover letter
Dear Mr. Hurring,
I found your advertisement for junior business analyst position in New York Times and decided to apply for it.
With my outstanding understanding for business and astonishing results when it comes to improving the effectiveness of production processes, I believe that I can be a strong asset for your team.
To analyze things and improve it is my passion. I improved lessons at the University, I improved the system of electricity saving in our house. Then, most importantly, I helped the company where I worked to raise profits by 200%, just by doing couple of relatively easy improvements.
I have studied process management at the Harton College (please find details on my resume) and was always oriented towards technology (field in which your company is very active).
Taking into account my detailed oriented and creative personality, I really believe that I am the right person for this job.
I will be glad to present myself in the job interview, if I get the opportunity. And I hope I’ll get it.
Thank you for your consideration and hopefully see you in the job interview.
Good applicant for business analyst position knows how to sell himself on a cover letter. You shoudl remember: Not the best person for the job is hired. The one who is able to convince the employers on the cover letter and in the interview is.
Do not underestimate the power of your cover letter. Spend enough time preparing it, thinking honestly about the added value you can bring to the company. We wish you good luck!
