Dear Sir or Madam:
I am writing to express my interest in the position listed on your company website. I believe that my data
analysis skills, professional attitude, and work experience in the Strategic Data Services Division at he Treasury
Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) make me a strong candidate for the position.
I started in 1987 as an assembler programmer developing applications for the processing of IRS data. For
TIGTA, I provided the audit and investigation staff with data access and was a subject matter expertise on IRS
data systems. I helped design, build and operate the SAS Data Warehouse extracting and transferring very
large data files from the IRS and loading them into Data Marts for analysis. I have an extensive background in
all aspects of Data Management, Data Warehousing, Big Data, Clustering and Storage technologies (SPDS).
Two years ago, TIGTA initiated a Data Analytics group tasked with identifying fraud in tax refunds,
procurement and identity theft. I received training in using SAS Analytics software, statistical concepts, data
mining methods, and data visualization tools in preparation for the establishment of the new analytics function.
I have completed 11 out of the 20 courses in the Data Science Certification program at the SAS Data Science
Academy. I supplemented this training with online courses in Data Science and Predictive Analytics. I
evaluated visualization tools for adoption into TIGTA’s infrastructure such as R, JMP, SAS Visual Analytics,
Hyperion EPM, and ESRI GIS software.
I am experienced in SAS, R, Python, SQL programming languages, plus various BI and Data Visualization
tools. I find the work uniquely challenging because it allows for a blending of my previous background in
science, math, computer programming, and data analysis. I am currently on a project team setup through the
District Data Labs (DDL) Incubator program engaged in a NLP analysis of the presidential debates from 2000
to 2016. I regularly attend DC Data Community, Data Science, Big Data, and Data Visualization Meetup
groups which sparked my interest in working in the data science field.
You will find me a well-spoken, confident, and energetic person on whom your customers can rely on. I have a
wide breadth of experience in various programming languages, computer platforms, database formats, data
management, and data analysis giving you the versatility to utilize my skillset in any number of different
contexts with confidence. Please see my resume for additional information on my experience and training.
I can be reached anytime by phone at (703) 798-6522. I look forward to hearing from you soon to setup an
interview and discuss this opportunity.
