Welcome to my cover letter. Sure, this is a bit unorthodox but you read so many of these I thought you might like a change of pace. First of all, let me briefly tell you a few things about me you can't get from a resume.
1) The key to my career success has been my creativity. I always look at problems from every angle to find the best solution.2) I'm competitive, especially with myself. I don't give up until the problem is solved.3) I'm really tall. That has nothing to do with the job, but it IS something you can't glean from my resume...
So then, how am I a good fit for Matrix Resources?Firstly, I have several years worth of experience in the automated ETL of data from many sources via stored procedures and triggers into a data warehouse. I've traversed the often difficult task of fitting people's "square peg" data into a warehouse's "round hole" schema many, many times.It's a lot like solving a tricky logic puzzle or designing complex things with LEGO (both of which I love to do in my spare time).
I have more than 10 years experience working with SQL server and Transact-SQL. I've got more than 5 years experience in data modeling (it's what I'm currently doing at Northside) and I've always had a knack for explaining/teaching others very technical ideas without bogging them down with overly-technical language.
I'm very happy with what I'm doing currently for Northside Hospital but the commute is... Well, let's just say it's not awesome. A remote job would be fantastic and thanks to COVID I've learned that I'm very capable of maintaining a high level of productivity in a home office environment.After COVID, commuting to Alpharetta would still be better than the trek to Sandy Springs.
I sincerely hope this "cover letter" has piqued your interested in me. I believe I would be a strong asset to Matrix Resources and I'm eager to discuss how my talents can be applied to help further Matrix Resources' success.Thank you for your time and attention.With regards, Scott Moore
