Apologies to the group for replying to this email.  I guess I wasn’t paying attention to the address when I responded.  Also thanks to all who suggested taking this off line.


Warm regards,

Hi Laura,

I am interested in applying to the Jr. IA position as I have all the skills and relevant work experience required to bring projects to successful completion.

I am proficient in client interfacing, gathering and documenting Business, Functional requirements, leading Join Application Development (JAD) Sessions, documenting meeting minutes and taking immediate action on issues, quickly understanding and documenting the gap between Current and Future State (Gap Analysis).

I am highly experienced on White-Box (Structural Coverage Testing) and Black-Box Functional and Non-Functional (without reference to internal structure) Testing Techniques utilizing the V, Waterfall, and Agil Model.

I have also served as an Oracle Development DBA graduated from Columbia University - Relational Database Management System - RDBMS Track of Special Programs. My strong technical background is very desirable for Gap Analysis and further external source analysis as I can work independently.

I have in depth professional experience working with Financial Institutions such as Goldman Sachs (Risk Management), Bank of America (Government E-Card Project), DLJ (First Online Brokerage Application), JPMorgan (Asset Management - Data Warehouse to centralized duplicate and systems and manual processes due to merger and Design of new Bookkeeping application to support the Portfolio Management Group).

I have also worked for E&Y LLP for over 2 years as a Senior Consultant.

I am very proactive, self-starter, quick learner, go-getter, independent and determined, and I am known for getting things done in a short timeline.

Thank you for your consideration,

Claudia O. Penido
