Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],
I am writing to apply for the consultant position at [Company Name – e.g., Bain] that I discovered while attending the Curious about Consulting networking event in Boston last week. My skills and over five years of experience in management consulting would allow me to excel in this role, and my professional goals align fully with those of [Company Name].
In my current position at The Stevens Partnership, I use data-driven solutions to help organizations reach their business objectives. I’ve helped over 30 companies implement strategies to overhaul their use of digital technology, resulting in sales increases of 27% on average.
I am also adept at:
- Applying new tools and building analytical frameworks
- Leading projects and managing teams of analysts
- Preparing business proposals and presenting findings to clients
- Executing disruptive communication plans
- Researching methodologies to mitigate risk
My multidisciplinary educational background, which includes an MSc in economics and business management, has given me additional insight into the challenges companies face, as well as the global contexts in which they operate. I am excited to champion [Company Name]’s innovative approach to market research, and to deliver solutions tailored to each client.
Thank you for your time and considering my application — I look forward to discussing my skills and experience in more detail in an interview. You can reach me directly at [Phone Number]. I will be in contact in a week if I don’t hear back to ensure my application has been received.
