This project has allowed me to drastically expand my predictive analytics and behavior analysis capabilities. Through my management, the project has produced substantial profitable results for Microsoft. I am well versed in deriving viable solutions to complex business problems through big data analysis and management.
During my position with Hewlett Packard, I worked extensively with machine learning and data mining techniques to infer marketing insights and forecast sales. I was responsible for using data visualization techniques to increase the usability and accessibility of data for the sales and marketing departments. Working closely other departments allowed me to hone my interpersonal skills and the ability to present complex technical information to non-technical personnel.
It would be a pleasure to learn more about [company]’s expansion plans and provide further insight into how my highly developed data analytic abilities, experience managing large data sets, robust predictive analytics, and machine learning skills can help your company achieve these results.
