Dear Mr Mitchell
Re: Business Development Manager position, REF: 35GG
I am writing to apply for the position of Business Development Manager, as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.
I am a highly organised, creative and motivated professional with extensive experience in business development, currently employed with Down to Earth Engineering Solutions, a market leader in engineering, management and technical service provision to the resources sector.
In my present role, I am involved in high-level strategy development and am responsible for maintaining strong relationships with key contacts in existing accounts, as well as developing new contacts and relationships. I also keep a close eye on market trends and identify gaps and niches that represent new business opportunities. This involves continual business prospecting and bidding, and maintaining high volume pipeline management.
I enjoy nothing more than big-picture, forward thinking but am also very analytical and thorough in developing business plans and strategies. I am very much a team player and thrive in a stimulating and dynamic environment.
I have an MBA and a Bachelor of Engineering Technology. My engineering background has given me technical expertise and extensive experience with CAD, CAM and PLM. I am also proficient in all Microsoft applications.
My goal is to continue learning and developing my expertise in my future role. I believe that I would be a perfect fit for Thompson and Shore and that this is a role in which I could continue to exercise and broaden my business development skills.
My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.
Dear Hiring Manager,
I am writing to express my interest in the Business Development position at The Daily Beast. I am certain that my skills and work experience which includes positions in large corporations as well as start-ups within the online world, make me the ideal candidate for this position. I have enclosed my resume to provide an overview of my achievements and qualifications for your review.
As Manager of Business Development and Publisher Networks at Mochila, an online distribution platform for quality content and advertising, I identify and manage relationships with large digital companies for the syndication and distribution of content and advertising, using contextual widgets and site sections. I am accustomed to successfully juggling multiple projects and have an excellent track record of building new business, forging strong relationships with clients, developing partnerships and increasing company revenue through innovative and creative strategies. I believe the major contributor to this success is my talent as a persuasive communicator; someone who can speak to clients in terms they understand and build the case for the brand I represent.
I work equally well in team-oriented and self-directed environments and find the challenges of the start-up setting stimulating. In addition to my experience and energy, I bring to the position an extensive knowledge of online syndication products and trends that will make a valuable contribution towards your companyâ€™s goals of building an audience and growing the brand.
At Mochila, I have leveraged my skills to meet and exceed expectations; I would like to do the same as a member of your team. I welcome an opportunity to meet with you to learn more about the position and discuss my qualifications and candidacy in further detail. Thank you for your time and consideration.
