I have had the very good fortune of working side-by-side with seasoned PR representatives, this past 5 years.
During my stay with DeClerc Advertising, I added 30 new clients to their already impressive roster and I was quickly promoted through the ranks all within my first year.
I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you and I will call you within the next three days to arrange an interview that will be convenient for you.

I read with great interest your advertisement in the New York Tribune for a human resources director. If motivation and dedication are attributes you value in an HR professional, then we need to talk.
The position your ad described matches my qualifications. I have served as human resources director for three firms, most recently ABC Company, where I was hired to create an HR department for a startup that had quickly grown to more than 150 employees. In addition to my experience in the hiring and separation of employees, I have a firm grasp of state and federal labor laws.
During my four years in the field of human resources, I have:
* Personally overseen the hiring of 54 employees at ABC Company.
* Improved the company's retention of qualified staffers, bringing the turnover rate from 18 percent to 10 percent over a three-year period.
* Managed all training and development functions for DEF Company.
I look forward to learning how my skills and background mesh with XYZ Company's goals.
