Dear Ms. Washington:
I was excited to read ABC Company’s posting for a project manager. I offer 11 years of experience executing project delivery for multimillion-dollar, strategic client projects involving:
Most recently as project manager for XYZ Company, I delivered results such as:

- 10% revenue boost (YTD) as leader of a $2M, enterprise-wide implementation of business intelligence applications for DEF Stores, which also facilitated supply chain decisions, improved store configuration, enhanced customer satisfaction and increased promotional sales.
- Management of a complex implementation of Oracle ERP, sun-setting SAP environment and seamlessly integrating a new platform without interrupting business operations.
Reinforcing my project and team management experience are credentials that include Project Management Professional (PMP) designation, multiple certifications (Six Sigma Green Belt, PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) and Microsoft Dynamics NAV), a BS in Computer Information Systems and an in-progress MBA.
Blending business, technical and people management skills to plan and execute IT projects, I am confident that I would contribute to successful IT project completions for ABC Company. You can reach me at (555) 555-5555 or firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a meeting. Thank you for your time.

Dear Mr Jones
Re: Construction Project Manager position
I am writing to apply for the position of Construction Project Manager, as advertised on SEEK.
Having worked in construction and engineering project management for the past eight years, I bring extensive knowledge and experience to all projects I oversee. After completing a Bachelor of Engineering Technology majoring in civil engineering, I continued on with postgraduate study to further my project management skills, and have an ongoing commitment to professional development.
I have held several roles in construction engineering and project management, with almost four years’ experience in a senior project management role. My leadership and communication skills have provided me with the ability to consistently complete projects within time and budget, and to motivate teams to achieve maximal efficiency.
My high level of organisation is a natural aptitude that I have been able to build on throughout my broad industry experience. I pride myself on my ability to minimise risk in all projects I manage and my conflict resolution skills have been invaluable to both my teams and clients.
I am looking for a role that will continue to expand my capabilities and challenge me in a positive way. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss the advertised role with you further and look forward to hearing from you.
