Dear Mr. [Insert Name];
Ms. Jane Williams suggested that I send my attached resume to you. She stated that you may have some Project Manager Positions opening that I am hereby applying for. Please allow me to give you a little background on myself.
In June, I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Business Management. During my 13+ years experience with PacifiCare, and while in school, I developed strong organizational and analytical skills. I am a self-starter, and have been instrumental in improving HEDIS processes and can aptly multi-task.
A key component for successful HEDIS completion is cultivating good working relationships with medical groups and provider offices. Through this process I have developed excellent interpersonal/communication skills.
The Flu/Pneumococal annual interventions are an example of my ability to manage a multi-disciplinary project. As a member of the Flu/Pneumococal Task Force, I have been instrumental in planning and implementing interventions. I have been responsible for executing a contract with Maxim Health Care to ensure that flu serum will be available to the senior population at the lowest possible price.
Good working relationships with vendors and with other internal departments (Member Services, Claims, etc) have been vital to the successful completion of this project. As you can see from my attached resume, I have a montage of experience across the HMO industry and have been able to hone my computer skills accordingly. I am highly proficient in Project, Word, Excel, Access, Power Point, and Visio. Also, I earned a medical terminology certificate.
I would appreciate your consideration of me for your upcoming positions. Ms. Williams has graciously offered to serve as a reference. Thank you for your consideration. For your convenience I can be reached at [Insert Phone Number]. Looking forward to speaking with you soon.
