April 28, 20––

Ms. Sandra D. Wright
Healthcare Recruitment, Inc.
7325 North 20th Street, Suite 4500
Phoenix, Arizona 85020

Dear Ms. Wright:

Kansas City Memorial Hospital has undergone an unexpected reduction in force, and my position was one of many that were eliminated. I did not leave because of performance problems or any other difficulties. All of the administrative team has expressed their sympathy and support, and I am leaving on excellent terms with all of them. Just a few weeks before this, I had received my best performance evaluation ever.

I am now very actively in the marketplace seeking an executive position in Hospital Administration, Information Systems Management, Healthcare Consulting, Strategic Planning, or Management Engineering. My resume is enclosed.

Most recently, I have been responsible for the Information Systems departments: Management Engineering, Patient Care Information System (PCIS), Word Processing, and Data Services liaison (our Data Services department is a corporately provided service and reports directly to the headquarters office in Kansas). The three departments reporting directly to me represented over $.5 million to manage and we came in 5% below budget in 20--.

I am interested in expanding my administrative experience. During the last seven years, I have developed my systems and management skills with a focus on cost efficiency. I have learned effective negotiating skills for contracting and which kinds of automation will generate a substantial reduction in costs or increase in revenue (I have included a summary of the automation savings achieved in 20--). I have also co-developed a successful strategic planning methodology for integrating the hospital's corporate goals with its operational and financial goals as well as its employee performance evaluation program to focus the whole organization on achievement and reward for attaining goals.

I would appreciate the opportunity to work with you. Please call me at (816) 842-2376 or return the enclosed postage paid questionnaire.

Thank you!

David K. Trujillo

William S. Frank, M.A.,
25 Reasons I love consulting.
by William S. Frank
  1. Brand. You are your own brand, and you can define it any way you want. For many years, I provided outplacement to the ex-employees of Schlumberger, the world's largest oilfield service corporation. When departing employees left the company, they didn't request outplacement in their severance package. They said, "I want Bill Frank."
  2. Demand. The world will always be full of terrible problems that need solving.
  3. White Hat. I can be a helper and get paid for it.
  4. Pay. I can be paid to do things I'd gladly do for nothing.
  5. Variety. Every day is different.
  6. Happiness. At this stage of my career, I only work for people I respect and care about. If a client micromanages me or is otherwise no fun, I complete the assignment and replace them.
  7. Talent. I'm using 110% of my talents and stretching myself to the max.
  8. Change. I can change my focus any day I want. If you're a McDonald's franchisee, you don't say, "Hey, I've got this great idea for a meatball sandwich—let's try it out today." In consulting you can adjust your focus hour-by-hour, as long as your clients still understand and appreciate what you do.
  9. Income. No one else would pay me as much as I pay myself.
  10. FUN. I can't think of anything I'd rather be doing.
  11. Retirement. I can write and consult as long as I am physically and mentally capable. Peter Drucker worked into his 90s, and when asked which book was his best, he said: "My next one."
  12. Job Security. Although clients come and go, no one can come into my office and say, "Pack up your stuff . . . You don't work here anymore." In 29 years, I've only had one employer: ME.
  13. Travel. I don't have to travel unless I decide to. I travel if it's both FUN and profitable—or at least FUN.
  14. Commute. I live five minutes from my office, a corner office in an upscale six-story tower. In winter, I leave a heated garage at home and drive to an underground heated garage at work. There's seldom time to hear even one song on the radio.
  15. Vacation. Consulting is more fun than vacation (except on Wailea Beach in Maui).
  16. Friends. I have developed hundreds of close acquaintances and several lifetime friends.
  17. Time. I can work as much or as little as I like: four-hour days or 18-hour days. (Of course, my income will reflect that.)
  18. Employees. I can work with employees, subcontractors, partners, or alone—I've done it all.
  19. Passive Income. I've developed several products that provide "mailbox money." I earn while I'm sleeping.
  20. Ethics. I've never had to violate my values or personal code of ethics. I've never had to lie, purposely deceive or harm others, or promise things I can't deliver. I go to bed with a clear conscience. That doesn't mean there's never any conflict. But the conflict is conducted according to generally accepted business practices.
  21. Virtual. My career is fairly portable. With the Internet, e-mail, cell phone, and FedEx, I can work nationally, even internationally from my office—or anywhere in the world.
  22. Purpose. I make a difference in peoples' lives every day. I see it in their faces, hear it in their voices, and read it in their thank-yous.
  23. Experience. Every painful or joyful life experience makes me a better consultant. So does every person I meet or book I read. Grey hair can be good in consulting.
  24. Structure. I have to work very hard, and the clients expect superb results—but I get to structure my days, weeks, months, and years.
  25. Boss. Most of the time, I love my boss.
As I was posting these letters online, I realized I want to communicate my love for consulting. It's just a great business. The single letters, taken together, may create a picture of enjoyment, but in a burst of creativity I listed some of the reasons consulting is such a good fit for me—and perhaps for you, too. They are not prioritized; this is just how they came out.
