Dear Mr. Smythe

I am writing to you with regards to your advertisement, February 19th, in the Washington Post, for a Sales Assistant, specializing in Public Relations and Marketing. As you can see from my enclosed resume, my experience and qualifications match this position's requirements.

I especially would like to point out at this time that I graduated from the renowned Brown’s Public Relations College and I have a history of exemplary service in the field of Marketing and Advertising. 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.
