Dear Sir/Madam
As a seasoned professional with 15+ years in project mid management, I am confident that the skills and
experience I bring to the table are a perfect match for the programming position at your company. With my
proven history of leading companies effect positive rating results, improve efficiencies and complete
projects under budget, I'm ready to hit the ground running and make a major contribution right away..
Throughout my career in the radio industry, I have led diverse teams to achieve organizational goals and
meet aggressive project deadlines on time and under budget.
Key achievements and skills include:
Leadership: Directed a team of 10 to 20 through all stages of deadline-driven projects.
Budget Management: Managed budgets of up to $ 12k, and worked with multiple subordinate
department heads to achieve objectives on-time and within budget.
Communication Skills: Communicated closely with sales staff and clients to get feedback, and build
productive campaigns. Although I have been retired seven years from medium market programming those skills have never been lost, as I seek a small market position.
I am confident that my combination of talent and ambition would be a valuable asset to your company,
and I'd appreciate the opportunity to speak with you further. Thanks for your time, and I look forward to
hearing back from you.
Sincerely,
J.D.BLACK
