Sample Marketing Position Cover Letter
Dear Selection Committee:
Not many individuals would possess the fortitude, maturity and energy level necessary to launch a successful production company while still in high school. Well, I did just that; as you review the enclosed resume, I believe you'll be impressed with all I've done since.
My background contains a progressive record of employment in the entertainment and interactive gaming industry, culminating in my most recent role as the Cofounder/Vice President of International Game Developers Cooperative. I've played a key role in reinforcing the organization's overall performance, creating strategic marketing campaigns that have resulted in national recognition and have driven a keen amount of interest to the gaming industry and student capabilities here at the University.
In addition to my current role, I've gained a reputation over the past 6 years for my ability to conceptualize and lead projects through successful conclusion, perform as both a leader and an essential team player, build strong relationships with respected gaming industry and entertainment leaders and develop savvy marketing / promotional programs that have consistently produced VERY strong and measurable results. Additionally, I am well versed in a variety of production-management functions, skilled in team leadership and enjoy playing a role in the success of both individual and corporate efforts.
I offer you a record of visionary idea generation and problem-solving techniques that have produced sustainable and impressive results for my employers. I am versatile and possess the unique "Gen-X" perspective and hands-on business expertise necessary for creating profitable marketing strategies within today's age-driven entertainment industry. I offer a high degree of integrity and professionalism and believe my proven history of successful entrepreneurial drive and ability to learn from established industry leaders would be an asset in any production, video gaming or marketing-driven setting.
Though you may find that a four-page resume is unusual for someone so young, it is certainly still not enough to convey the depth of the knowledge, experience, professionalism and enthusiasm that I will immediately infuse into your organization! I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you personally to discuss more specifically what I might do for your company.
Thank you for your time, and I really look forward to hearing from you soon to discuss the opportunities afforded by your organization.
