Mr. David Henry
HR Manager
Enova Institute of Education and Research
899 State Rd
Plano, TX 75023


Dear Mr. Henry:

An experienced and detail oriented statistician, working in the corporate research sector for the past six years, I would like to utilize my expertise in a more challenging environment. My strong background in statistical analysis, sample size estimation and research designing make me a head-on favorite for the job of statistician at Enova institute of Education and Research.

Working for three years as a data scientist at IMS consulting group rendered me well versed in grant proposal preparation, problem formulation and power analysis. After being promoted to senior statistician two years back, the domain of my duties expanded to include data acquisition, production reporting, field surveying and the like. My previous employer will verify that I carried out all the above mentioned tasks with nothing less than perfection. My enclosed resume details some outstanding accomplishments I have to my credit as a statistician that reflect my potential.

I believe the most important job of a statistician is to identify and remove potential threats to validity of research and to resolve the pragmatic issues associated with research projects. I bring solid experience in implementing quality control while ensuring reliability and validity of projects. Considering the nature of data analysis carried out in routine at Enova, my diverse skills as statistician in the economic and pharmaceutical departments definitely gives me an edge.

I would like an opportunity to meet with you in person to discuss the prospect in detail. Please call me at (006) 444-3333 to communicate an interview date and also I’d be happy to clarify any concerns you might have regarding my qualifications.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
