Dear Roy,

Thank you for your email. I believe my experience is well matched for this position:

• 9 years of usability experience (7 years in a lead role) • Strong customer advocate • designing user interfaces • performing task/work flow analysis • creating mockups, flow diagrams and wireframes • writing detailed user interface and functionality requirements

I’ve worked on the user interface design and specifications for various enterprise applications, making complex data and processes clear and easy to use. On several occasions I was chosen to assist other areas that needed help, including writing responses to requests for proposals, assisting sales with customer demonstrations and mocking up possible interface solutions for other projects that did not have a usability team. I have worked with both local and off-shore development teams within agile, XP and “waterfall” software development life-cycle paradigms.

Attached is my resume. I would appreciate an opportunity to speak with you about my usability expertise. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely, Elizabeth Chen
