Dear Human Resources Representative:
It was with great interest and enthusiasm that I read your advertisement for a Marketing Assistant, as my background and abilities match your requirements for this position. Please allow me to explain briefly how my combination of sales, marketing, and customer service knowledge/experience can contribute to your organizationís growth and success.
I will be receiving my B.B.A. degree in Marketing in August of this year; therefore, I have focused the majority of my professional development on marketing studies. However, my work history consists mainly of sales and customer-service positions. I see this as a strength because sales, marketing, and customer service are linked through their many similarities; they all share a common focus on consumer patterns, customer needs fulfillment, and business growth as the ultimate goal.
As a member of your team, I could use my knowledge of marketing and business-development strategies, ability to increase sales, and skills in customer satisfaction/retention to contribute to your organizationís growth and success. Additionally, I can add value to your operations through my willingness to put forth an extra effort in all activities and perform tasks beyond those that fall under my job requirements. My former and current supervisors will attest that I am a dependable employee whom they trust implicitly.
My resume is enclosed to provide you with additional details concerning my background. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you.
