Per always, cover letter editing follows a tight deadline. I’m going to do my best to get updated versions up at https://pad.riseup.net/p/coverletter, but I figure posting the current text here won’t hurt.
I write to apply for the Business/Systems Analyst 2 position. As a former Systems Engineer at Epic, and having a master’s degree focusing on Systems Analysis, I have the education and experience to excel in this role.
Project-based work is where I succeed. On top of my long history of coaching, and event planning, I have implemented multiple technical projects. While working for UNC’s School of Medicine, I implemented a video microscopy system. Later, I spent a semester in graduate school implementing an inventory system for the Communications Department. At Epic, I had multiple projects, but the one where I most lead the project was in developing an internal Linux laptop program. More than other projects, this project had multiple stakeholders. I had active engagement from my boss (and my boss’ boss), the team members I supervised, and the individuals getting the laptops. While subordinates are not always considered stakeholders, in this particular case they were very important stakeholders. As principal developer, I needed to implement a system that they understood well enough to support.
I went to law school to understand copyright and patent law as it related to technology. However, certain business opportunities arose which I felt I could not turn down. Of course, I continue maintain my development skills through business web sites.
