Dear Mr. Harris:

Marjorie McCarthy suggested I contact you regarding the Public Relations Manager and Communications Specialist positions that were recently posted on your Web site. When you have a chance to review the enclosed resume, you will see that I meet or exceed the qualifications for both positions.

You will notice that over the last 15+ years I have worn many hats. Because the organizations with which I was associated were small, I was responsible for everything from writing press releases to community outreach, grant writing to marketing, and fundraising to budget management. The common thread among these responsibilities: communication. Putting the organization's best foot forward was always the priority. I believe my accomplishments (described on my resume) reflect my ability.

My personal assets lend themselves to your positions. For example, you will find that I am

  • Highly organized (I had to be to wear all those hats!)
  • An accomplished writer (newsletters, marketing material, scripts)
  • A strategic thinker (erased red ink and turned a significant profit in 3 years)
  • Versatile (all those hats, remember?)

That's why I am confident I can become a successful team member of National City's Communications/Marketing Department. I hope you'll give me an opportunity to speak with you personally so I can elaborate on my qualifications and motivation. Please contact me at 555-555-2222 (or at your convenience. Thank you for your consideration and I'll look forward to hearing from you.
