Dear Mr. Miller,
I am writing to express my interest in the Assistant Director position with the Sun Devil Athletic Association, Incorporated. I offer a distinguished record of achievements in directing process improvements and designing action plans to achieve organizational goals.
Your organization has been highly recommended to me by Robert Franklin. He has appreciated your friendship over the years and has advised me to forward my resume. I am accustomed to a fast-paced environment where deadlines are priority and handling multiple jobs simultaneously is the norm. I enjoy a challenge and work hard to attain my goals, and I believe that if I had the opportunity to interview with you, it would be apparent that my skills are far-reaching.
I believe the combination of my education and business experience offers me the unique opportunity to make a positive contribution to your organization. My skills and experience include the following:
- Extensive background in all areas of staff management, budget development, strategic planning, public relations, and marketing
- Excellent communication skills
- Demonstrated ability to approach management from a broad base of management experience in a number of areas, particularly the development and implementation of new programs
- Career experience complemented by a Bachelor's degree in Marketing
Although the accompanying resume illustrates my strengths well, I am certain of my abilities to make a significant contribution early on and that a personal interview would better demonstrate how I could meet the needs of the Sun Devil Athletic Association. I look forward to the opportunity of discussing in person how my expertise could best fit your needs. In the interim, thank you for your consideration, attention, and forthcoming response.
