IBM Systems & Technology Group Deep Computing © 2006 IBM Corporation 5 Formula for Accomplishments Formulate accomplishments as 1.A problems that someone has 2.Your contribution 3.A quantifiable result – make precise i.e. don’t use multiple of 5’s Use this formula in Letter and/or resume –May imply the problem –Be specific about what you did –Use numbers The cover letter can provide specific accomplishments pertinent to the particular position not on the resume –Write the cover letter for position pursuing –Letter can be a couple of pages long –Cram a lot into the letter Post interview or thank you letter –Can be modified cover letter based on things you learned while interviewing –Same format as cover letter –Opportunity to correct any miss impression
IBM Systems & Technology Group Deep Computing © 2006 IBM Corporation 6 Cover Letter Statement of something pertinent to the Position: I continue to collaborate on and deliver a client/server based network centric interactive parallel visualization tool. I incorporated it into numerous parallel applications, demonstrating high performance computing with interactive visualization and application steering over common network media even with thousands of miles separating the high performance computer and the graphics workstation. I have demonstrated this work numerous times including at Supercomputing'96 where TICAM's SP was used to show one of the Center for Subsurface Modeling’s reservoir simulations in the CRPC Booth at Pittsburgh. Why you are perfect for the position: The position of XXX for YYY may require my experience in computational mathematics, high performance computing, and networking, high-end visualization, heterogeneous computing and massively parallel computing. Your committee may be interested in a few things I have accomplished. Opportunity to list accomplishment specific to the position: Connected group working on high-resolution and high-content displays with Department of Energy and collaborated on white paper requested by Department of Energy managers. Results: Department of Energy awarded company.5M$ award in “Pathforward” funding to accelerate delivery of product with more funds for early delivery of additional display as company’s first customer. Worked with numerous institutions to prepare Federal Funding Agencies proposals, have written letters in support of the most worthy over the past several years and where appropriate participated in Funding Agency site visits. Results: In last 4 years, where site visit would be required 86% made final round and had visit, 43% of all the proposals were awarded ranging in funds from 95K$ to 1.2M$. Summary closing:
