Resume Cover

To Whom It May Concern:

Thank you for taking the time to review my resume. I am eager to fine myself placed into a role that can best leverage my project management and people skills.

I am an experienced IT professional with a broad skill set which spans the gambit of hardware/software through infrastructure management, and information security. The ideal, opportunity for me, would take advantage of my innate problem solving skills and my ability to see through an issue and architect a solution utilizing existing resources, with the appropriate introduction of stable technologies best suited for the task.

I have people management experience and a true believer in Lean Six Sigma; every good solution begins with a focused process which strides to find the best use of available resources and tools.

My most recent experience has been related to web, and database design and architecture. I am currently designing and managing the ongoing development of information solutions for security reporting and compliance using .NET and C# with MS SQL server back-end databases.

In all of my roles, be they development, administrative in nature, or technical engineering, the hallmark of my success has been directly linked to my ability to manage the projects and tasks that I had before me and bring my team along with me, as we sought out the best solution for automation and efficiency.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,
Ken Carter
