Dear Mr. Matters:
After speaking with Sara Smitty, the Division Coordinator at the Blackard Municipal site, I was encouraged to notify you of my interest in your new management trainee program at Slackard Industries. While researching area organizations, I was attracted by your emphasis on customer service along with your organization's social strength. I also read your mission statement and agree with your company's focus on enthusiasm and hard work. I believe this fosters strong teamwork and helps to shape a more enjoyable and professional environment.
I believe that a position with an organization such as yours fits very well with my education, experiences, and future career interests. As a Socialology major and computer minor, my education has provided me with an expanded way of thinking and learning.
When you read my resume, you will see I have extensive experience supervising twenty-five employees. My success and improved department performance was a most gratifying reward.
I have gained many transferable skills as an assistant at my university as well. I utilized written and verbal communication skills through presentations, peer counseling, debates, and promoting various career development events.
I would appreciate the opportunity to further discuss how my skills and knowledge would benefit Slackard Industries. My resume is enclosed for your review. You may contact me at (555) 555-5555 or email@example.com. Please feel free to leave a message if I am not available. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
