Dear Hiring Executive:
I appreciate this opportunity to apply for the position of Executive Director of Communications for the Blazers. Enclosed is a copy of my resume, which shows that I have obtained outstanding experience in a variety of areas, including expertise in communications and public relations.
With more than 26 years of business experience, I have developed strong communication techniques and a unique ability to work effectively with the media. As a successful business owner, I have had the direct responsibility for planning and directing all aspects of the business, developing policies and procedures, and detailing strategic plans. I also have a strong background in promoting concepts while at the same time securing a strong position in the market. While working with Tim Owen's Autogroup, I was responsible for the organization and public relations relating to sponsored auto races at Portland International Raceways, including working with celebrity guests such as Paul Newman.
In working with various basketball teams over the years, I have had the privilege of developing teams from scratch, promoting the team concept to various school districts, and marketing the sport to the public. You will find me to be highly energetic, diplomatic, and results-oriented with a history of success that will support my achievements.
Needless to say, submitting a brief review on paper does not give you a complete picture of my abilities. I would very much like the opportunity to meet with you personally to detail more in depth the qualifications I can share with your organization. I believe that your requirements and my skills are a close match. I look forward to your call to set up an interview time. You can reach me at 555-555-5555.
