Dear Sir or Madam:Currently, I am looking to relocate to the Midwest, where I graduated from Iowa StateUniversity with a degree in Finance in May 2007. However, I am willing to relocate toany other part of the country as opportunities are available. As a young professional, mygoal is to find a place where I can dedicate my knowledge to help improve financialefficiencies while improving strategic decisions.I graduated from Lake Erie College with a MBA in May 2009. My experiences duringthe MBA program have allowed me to develop strategic goals and initiatives for anorganization, while also having the capability to deliver recommendations in a professional manner.While working as a Payroll Accountant at STERIS, I quickly developed an understandingfor the role of my position and worked to make changes to increase efficiencies withinthe position. I restructured reports and procedures that provided vague details. The procedures which were in place could not be easily understood by another person whomay have to learn the position. In order to make the procedures understandable, I rewrotethe procedures, while adding information explaining why certain tasks were beingcompleted. Last fiscal year, a significant amount of funds were written off due to the lack of paperwork to determine where the funds should be placed. These new procedurescreated have prevented this from happening during the 2009 fiscal year.My financial skills and additional knowledge from my MBA have allowed me to viewthe effects of our department on the health of STERIS. While working with my manager,I have learned how are department and other departments can save the company costs,whether they are overhead or tax costs. Using my financial background, I have been ableto save STERIS thousands of dollars in payroll taxes by reducing our unemploymentinsurance rates. Working with state and federal agencies, I have brought STERIS incompliance with many different types of taxes. This was accomplished by having a morevisible physical paper trail of information that details how taxes have been handled. Dueto my hard-working nature and strive for success, I have also taken on additional tasks previously completed by the payroll manager. Simultaneously, I have added additionaltasks which prevent potential issues from not being noticed until the end of the year.These tasks have reduced the number of outstanding checks within the department andhave allowed the department to verify social security numbers on a weekly basis, rather than an annual basis.As an analyst in the largest business unit at STERIS, I have worked closely withmarketing managers and operations managers to develop ways to reduce operatingexpenses while creating new strategies to market our products. While working with our marketing teams, I helped analyze current and historical financial data to produce a morestrategic pricing strategy to increase our company’s market share in high leveldisinfectant equipment. Other projects I have been assigned to have allowed me to create
