Presentation for P&G Assistant Brand Manager Position

Koray CoĹ&#x;kun

February 2008


Dear Sir or Madam; Please let me present the attached resume to you for Assistant Brand Manager as recently advertised on your company website. I believe that my combination of technical skills, experience, and business sensibilities would serve Procter & Gamble well in this position. As the areas of the position is specified completely, I would like to state that I want to take place in your Marketing team by referring my educational background and professional experiences I gained through working in PwC. To the extent that the position requires analysis of business rules and processes, I have specific experience in two main areas that are closely related. On the analysis side, I used to work as an assistant auditor for PwC which brought me in a great experience for business analysis processes. In that position, I was responsible for analyzing the processes of the companies that were audited, understanding the markets they operates in, and evaluating the position of the company in the market. As I gained experience on the field, I become responsible for the analyzing of the financial statements of the companies which is one of the key indicators to validate the preliminary analytics that we have performed before. On the other hand, I have gained specific industry knowledge in energy, aerospace, automotive, tourism and construction on the basis of costing, sales and marketing. More specifically, I have gained technical experience in costing and gross profit margin analysis in very different business environments. On the financial reporting basis, I have taken place in the consolidation works which contains the consolidation of 43 companies. My aptitude to reporting including IFRS and US GAAP gained through my experience in PwC is also another indicator of my being good at numbers. On a more general level, I believe I bring the broad "soft" skills you can have confidence in with a candidate that will represent P&G to your customers. I trust you would find me to be well-spoken, energetic, confident, and personable, the type of person on whom your customers and though your business environment will rely. I also have a wide breadth of experience of the type that gives you the flexibility to place me in a number of contexts with confidence that the level of excellence you expect will be met. In most situations technical decisions must be made within the context of larger business constraints. Throughout my career I got used to work under strict deadlines and I can proudly claim that whatever the situations were, I could overcome every task I was engaged in with a great success. Prioritizing enhancements to meet strategic objectives, and focusing on business imperatives are core values of mine, which I bring to every project on which I work. I greatly appreciate you taking the time to review my credentials and experience. I hope that you'll find my experience, interests, and character intriguing enough to warrant a face-to-face meeting, as I am confident that I could provide value to you and your customers as a member of your team. Sincerely, Koray CoĹ&#x;kun
