Dear Ms. Abbott,

I am writing to apply for the Cost Analyst position now available with Shaw Group.

I have a bachelor’s degree in business finance and when it comes to numbers, I am an expert. I have the skills and training needed to help you make those vital decisions that will have a major impact on the future of your company.

I have the education, training and skills to do the research needed to analyze the cost for any project your company pursues. This involves running a series of test and studying the data extensively to compare the numbers and determine an estimated cost for the project.

After estimating the cost, I have the ability to determine the expected profit margin, so you can decide if the project is worth the expense or if the cost is too great to pursue. I am familiar with using spreadsheets and financial software packages and I have the skills to help your company find effective ways to cut cost and increase revenue.

I pay close attention to detail and I have the patience and perseverance to spend hours repeating the same tasks in order to find the data I need to make sure your company is receiving the very best information. This way, you can make good, informed decisions that will benefit your company. I know the rules and regulations that govern this profession and I know that I can become a vital member of your team.

I hope to meet with you soon to discuss this position in more detail. My contact number is (123)-236-1125.
