Business Analyst Cover Letter :
Gabrielle may be doing herself a disservice here. "You are who you are," not "you are what you studied." It is usually better to use directory information in a broad, inclusive way and not eliminate a firm from consideration simply because your college major isn't mentioned in connection with that firm. What you have to offer a firm is broader than just the subjects you have studied.
Looking at the citations in the main pages, Gabrielle found a brief snapshot of each firm. The text gave information about disciplines hired - a company overview and a few sentences about career opportunities.
Some of the firms seemed to be of interest to Gabrielle, based on their product-for example, computers. On the other hand, others were of less interest to her, such as hospitals. "When I make my reports at the meeting, I will ask what to include or exclude when building a list of firms. Maybe there's a rule of
thumb about establishing priorities," Gabrielle said to herself.
Gabrielle realized that there's more to Massachusetts than Boston. So she identified firms located in towns a conunutable distance from that city. In so doing, she added about 150 firms to her list.
"I've done pretty well in the yellow index," Gabrielle said to herself. "Let's see what else I can find." Gabrielle carne to the green index, "Employer Branch Offices Geographically." Under Boston alone, Gabrielle found hundreds of firms having headquarters elsewhere, but branches in Boston. "I will have to dig a little deeper to find addresses and similar information for these branches, since that is not included
in the directory. But the important thing is that I have made an important discovery in about one hour of work. Far from having to look for work in a job desert, I really need to identify the most promising roses in a large garden of employers."
Gabrielle left two questions open for herself. Let's address them here.
Is there a rule of thumb to identify those firms to which you will devote the most effort? Although every individual has his / her own circumstances, I recommend starting with firms meeting at least two of your most important criteria. For example, you might choose your must desired geography and most desired industry. Then loosen the constraints a bit on one criterion at a time. You could expand your geographical boundaries, for example. That way, you will have a manageable, but growing list of potential employers.
Information about branches : Remember that basic information about the firm's product line, gross revenue, etc., is included in the main entry of the reference books Gabrielle used. If you are interested in a branch location, rather than the headquarters, what you still need to know is its size, address and a contact person. The chamber of commerce in that locality may be able to provide the information. If not, call the branch and simply ask for the name of the senior official. The local telephone book should provide both an address and a phone number.
