Reference, withdraw & Resign lettersProfessor James Price Economics Department State University University City, MO 09876 Dear Professor Price: After all you've done for me -- as professor, advisor and friend -- do I dare ask for more? Well, I must, so here it goes. Would you be willing to serve as a reference for me in my job search? As you know, I'd like to join the training program of a financial services organization in the St. Louis area. In fact, I have already interviewed with three firms, each of which has asked me to provide references. With your permission, I will have the following people contact you: 1. John Brunswick, Loan Officer St. Louis Federal Bank 2. Muriel Howard, Vice President Credit Services Clayton Bank and Trust 3. Leslie Rubin, President South County Credit Union Knowing how busy your schedule is this time of year, I shall call your office next Wednesday during the late afternoon to see whether you're able to speak with these people. I thank you in advance for your time and help. Fondly, Jennifer Lawrence February 15, 199X Mr. William Hedger, President The Technix Corporation 9755 Old Lyme Road Old Lyme CT 09876 Dear Mr. Hedger: I am writing to inform you that I will be resigning my responsibilities as Comptroller effective March 1, 199X. I realize that selecting and introducing a new Comptroller may be difficult, and I will do whatever I can to make this transition a smooth one. In large part, the streamlined accounting and recordkeeping practices I developed during the last 4 years will help a new Comptroller master our systems and data quickly. I am pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Technix. I wish you continued success and growth. Sincerely, Christine Mikabi November 3, 199X Mr. Jack Andrews Andrews Housewares 189 East 40th Street Quincy, IL 09876 Dear Jack: Effective November 30, I am resigning from my job as Media Director at Mercury Advertising. My decision to leave is both personal and professional, and does not reflect a change in my opinion of the company. Donna Frey has performed admirably as my assistant, and is well equipped to assume my responsibilities at once. If you prefer to look outside the company to replace me, I will be happy to assist in the search between now and the end of the month. Thank you for your continued confidence in me throughout the past two years. Sincerely, Thomas Keith Mr. Ronald H. Burke President Burke Enterprises 245 East 42 Street New York, NY 09876 Dear Ron: I hope this letter finds you well and prosperous. During my 1990-1993 tenure at Burke Enterprises, your insistence on premier product innovations was legendary. Since then, I have kept abreast of Burke's impressive growth so I know that your admonitions are still being heeded. As you may recall, I left Burke when my wife's firm sent her to California to open a West Coast division. After two years with the government, I am now in the process of continuing my career in product development, and would consider it an honor to add your name to the top of my list of references. With your approval, I will authorize representatives of firms with which I am in the final stages of the selection process to contact you. I have enclosed an updated resume with this letter to remind you of my qualifications -- and I will call you shortly to see whether you might be willing to assist me. If so, I will provide you, in advance, with the names of those who may be in touch with you. Ron, I was grateful for your thoughtfulness and support when I was part of the Burke team, and I am equally grateful now for your help.

Pynter American Eagle Publishers 1200 Wacker Drive Chicago, IL 09876 Dear Harold: You've certainly built an exceptional editorial team over the years, and your offer to join it is enormously gratifying. As you know, I am very eager to accept this honor. I look forward to bringing my contacts, authors, and their projects in progress to American Eagle. Because these relationships are ones I've nurtured for more than 10 years, they're naturally of great value to me -- and to you. The profit potential they represent is substantial. I feel it is reasonable and fair to adhere to my request for a 10% stake in the profits these properties generate. Harold, in light of the many benefits of our joining forces, this detail seems minor. It is, however, of great importance to me. Let's agree on this right away, and launch our promising partnership! I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Jim Enright Mr. Harold C. Pynter American Eagle Publishers 1200 Wacker Drive Chicago, IL 09876 Dear Harold: You've certainly built an exceptional editorial team over the years, and your offer to join it is enormously gratifying. As you know, I am very eager to accept this honor. I look forward to bringing my contacts, authors, and their projects in progress to American Eagle. Because these relationships are ones I've nurtured for more than 10 years, they're naturally of great value to me -- and to you. The profit potential they represent is substantial.

I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Jim Enright Ms. Loretta Smits Personnel Officer HealthCom, Inc. 340 Woodside Drive Pleasantville, NY 09876 Dear Ms. Smits: Thank you very much for offering me the position of Programmer for your Eastern Division. Unfortunately, because I have just accepted another firm's offer, I am unable to join HealthCom's staff at this time. I am very grateful to you for your assistance during the interview process, and I thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Charlotte Milman-Speers Mr. Anthony Rubens Personnel Officer Johnson & Miller, Inc. 6500 Executive Parkway Bristol, PA 09876 Dear Mr. Rubens: I am writing to withdraw my name from consideration for the position of Executive Administrative Assistant with your firm as I have accepted an offer from another company. However, I must thank you for your time and candor in describing both the position and the corporate culture. You were most kind, and I appreciate the encouragement you offered me.

Thank you letter examplesMr. Randolph Charles, Vice President National Safety Systems, Inc. 26 East Ontario Street Chicago, IL 09876 Dear Mr. Charles: It was a pleasure speaking with you recently about your plans to expand into the corporate market. I have just returned from two weeks vacation and am anxious to pursue our discussion of the exciting profit potential such a program can offer National Safety -- a potential of which I am well aware, having built Wytech Security's corporate program from the ground up to its current status as a major profit center for the company. As a springboard for this discussion, I have enclosed another copy of my resume. Since you last saw it, my responsibilities have been increased. I now lead the planning and implementation of one of the company's major strategic initiatives: promoting multisite security systems to firms that operate from coast to coast. I am responsible for the sale of full-service security system packages, which include customized system design, installation, and staff training. As a result, I can offer National Safety Systems the experience, foresight, and personal contacts required to tap the corporate security market and to take full advantage of the potential for return this market offers. I will contact you again shortly to see how we might proceed. I thank you again for your consideration and look forward to seeing you. Sincerely, A. Michael Greer (555) 456-7890 work (555) 765-4321 home Mr. Howard Walsh Sales Manager Long Life Insurance Company 100 South College Boulevard Denver, CO 80300 Dear Mr. Walsh: Thank you for spending so much time with me during my visit to your headquarters on Monday. Seeing the respect evident between you and your colleagues was completely refreshing for me -- as was discovering the innovative sales strategies you've introduced. I am eager to join forces with you. You can count on me to quickly become a familiar face to prospects, clients, and business leaders in and around Denver. Through previous moves, I have become adept at forging contacts and friendships through my personal interest in the arts as well as my participation in the activities of local business groups (such as the Lifers Club, United Way, Police Athletic League, Financial Marketing Association, Advertising Club and the Red Cross in Atlanta). Turning these connections into sales is integral to my status as the top biller at my agency for four years running. I will forward additional information to you shortly to support what my record has already proven: that I will produce nothing less than outstanding results for you and Long Life. Sincerely, Allison Deal (555) 456-7890 Ms. Jane S. McManus McManus Model Management, Inc. 5200 Meredith Parkway Suite 2424 Cinema City, CA 09876 Dear Ms. McManus: In follow-up to my recent telephone conversation with your office, I am enclosing my headshots. As you'll see, I am a fresh face on the market. I have the ideal look for a father, businessman, or active outdoors type in the 36 to 42 age range. I have recently completed The Model Market's commercial print course and have acquired the skills to compete effectively for bookings, and perform professionally on the set. I will telephone you shortly to set up an appointment so that we may discuss opportunities that may arise through your agency. I thank you in advance for your consideration. Sincerely, Thomas Williams 555-765-4321 (service) Headshots enclosed Ms. June Ellis-Parker Grummond Associates 101 Alden Terrace Ames, IA 09876 Dear Ms. Ellis-Parker: Meeting you today was a real pleasure. I enjoyed touring your facility and seeing a staff that does not require formal attire to achieve impressive productivity. Quite a departure from the typical corporate environment! As we discussed, the position is an exciting one for which I am superbly qualified, and it would be an honor to join your team. The range of skills I can bring to your organization would allow your managers to devote more time to joint field work, and ultimately increase your bottom line profits. I will call on Friday as you suggested to see whether Roger Transwood has returned and is available to meet with me. Thank you again for your time. I look forward to seeing you again very soon. Sincerely, Linda Blumfeld (555) 456-7890 Ms. Erica Magni Brigham Products, Inc. 6534 Laudley Way White Plains, NY 09876 Dear Ms. Magni: Thank you for speaking with me at the recent State Collegiate Career Fair. Our conversation made a striking impression on me, and I appreciate your interest and encouragement. As we discussed, I have enclosed my resume as a follow-up to our discussion. Allow me to provide this brief overview of what I can offer your firm: Leadership: Student Government Vice President, Sorority President, Big Sister Volunteer while maintaining a 3.5 GPA. Interpersonal Strengths: I am pleased to report that my colleagues describe me as a go-getter who is reliable, pleasant, encouraging, and loyal. Drive: I will be available to begin work immediately upon receiving my BS in Business Administration this spring from State University. I will be in the area again next month, and will call to set up an appointment. In the meantime, I thank you again for your time at the Career Fair, and look forward to meeting you again soon. Sincerely, Brian Fogarty Telephone at School: (555) 456-7890 Local Telephone: (555) 765-4321 Ms. Julia Klemperer, Comptroller Howard Industries Suite 300 67 Houston Street Spring City, TX 09876 Dear Ms. Klemperer: Thank you for the opportunity to meet you and interview for the Bookkeeper position. Hearing you recount the growth your company has enjoyed, I am certain that your own hard work and commitment are the roots of your success. As your bookkeeper, I will bring the same dedication to the fulfillment of your firm's accounting responsibilities. -- I am adept at handling all aspects of your accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, and payroll taxes. My 5 years of experience in these areas means that you can rely on me for skill and accuracy. -- Unlike others in my field, I am well versed in handling a payroll with diverse commissions/bonus structures. This reduces or eliminates the potential for problems that arise when payment errors aggravate your Sales Representatives. -- Furthermore, my computer expertise (Peachtree, MAS90, and Quickbooks for MAC) allow me to contribute immediately, without taking valuable company time for training. I would very much like to join your firm. If you require any additional information before making your decision, please let me know. I would be pleased to visit your office again for another meeting or provide further references, if you wish. Thank you for considering me. Sincerely, Barton Hennessey (555) 765-4321 Mr. Wesley Valentin Valentin Designs 1515 Severth Avenue New York, NY 09876 Dear Mr. Valentin: It was wonderful speaking with you last week. Thank you for spending so much time with me. I am extremely interested in pursuing the Assistant Buyer opening at your firm because it represents the perfect match between your needs and my strengths. My retailing background has familiarized me with an industry where diplomacy and tact are of supreme importance. As we discussed, the ability to quickly assess an individual in order to respond appropriately and productively is more a personality trait than an acquired skill -- it can rarely be taught. I am pleased to report that my colleagues have repeatedly acknowledged my abilities in interpersonal communications. In fact, I have taken the liberty of enclosing several letters of referral that highlight this unique trait. I hope it is evident that I would welcome the chance to work for Valentin Designs with you personally, Mr. Valentin. Please let me know if there is any further information you require. Sincerely, Rachael Isserman (555) 456-7890 Telephone Ms. Leonore Valerio Lincoln Center Institute New York, NY 09876 Dear Ms. Valerio: Thank you for taking an interest in me as a teaching artist for Lincoln Center. I enjoyed our telephone conversation of last week, and have received the information you forwarded to me. This position represents an important opportunity for me to continue my productive association with the Lincoln Center Institute. As both a dancer and dance captain with LCI, I meet regularly with the artists prior to our performances to explore the link between the classroom material and the post-performance open talk. Invariably, this preparation proves priceless to students who benefit from a newfound familiarity with the elements of dance, and the terminology introduced in class. This, along with my current participation as a member of your affiliated New York City Baroque Dance Company, reinforces my teaching philosophy: to share with my students the great joy of movement. I have found that every student can experience the pleasures of dancing, and of learning about the many methods for expression through movement. Depending upon their age and level, I introduce my students to various technical challenges, dance forms, and elements of composition. With the advantage of live performance, which your program offers, a teacher can guide the students towards a better understanding and appreciation of the performing arts. Books, pictures, and video tapes can enhance, but not replace, the experience of a live performance -- and the students truly enjoy it! As an artist, I believe we have an obligation to show society the ways in which art can be brought into the mainstream of education. As a mother, I understand that a child's intellectual and emotional development must be well-rounded. I feel strongly that we can allow neither the winds of politics nor families' failings to adversely affect an entire new generation. Plus, we owe it to our future artists to help create a society supportive of the arts, one in which the arts may flourish. Combined, my experience and commitment offer the advantages only a dedicated artist and educator can offer. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you personally. I salute the wonderful LCI program, and thank you again for your consideration. Sincerely, Isadora Ilianya Ms. Chikara Itano Denson & Denson Chemicals 1490 Anaheim Way Anaheim, FL 09876 Dear Ms. Itano: Congratulations on your promotion! It's so gratifying to see women recognized for their skills. I enjoyed speaking with you on the phone yesterday, and, as promised, I've enclosed some information on myself and my capabilities. As you'll see, I've had a fair amount of experience within the financial services arena as well as a pseudomedical education. My particular expertise is in the pharmaceuticals industry, a field in which many writers are less fluent. I am well-versed in the chemical and medical "lingo" that supports a vast range of pediatric, nutritional, pharmaceutical, and biological prescriptions, and over-the-counter products, as well as the government regulations governing their discussion in any public forum. This knowledge allows me to execute a greater number of projects at a far faster pace than other technical writers. I would welcome the chance to show you samples of my work, at your convenience. When things settle down for both of us, let's get together. I will call you again towards the end of this month. In the meantime, I wish you the best in your new position. Sincerely, Amy Rubenstein (555) 456-7890 Mr. Harold Hancock Vice President Genebyte Technologies, Inc. 42-14 San Mateo Road San Jose, CA 09876 Dear Hal: It was great to see you yesterday and reminisce about our days at Growth Systems. Seems like just yesterday -- but I digress! Although I am chagrined that Genebyte's hiring freeze is still in place, I do appreciate your offer to recommend me after the thaw. As you know, our work at Growth Systems during those heady days when the computer industry was being born provides a background few can match. It would be a thrill to join forces with you again -- especially on a project as exciting as your multimedia/cellular assignment. Hal, thanks again for seeing me and filling me in on Genebyte's activities. Please give my regards to Jill. I'll keep in touch. Best, Jim Dixon Ms. Anne Rice Constitution Savings Bank 3 Constitution Plaza Miami, Florida 30330 Dear Ms. Rice: Thank you for allowing me to present myself as a candidate for Operations Manager, a prospect about which I am very excited. It was a pleasure meeting you on Wednesday -- and discovering our mutual Midwestern roots! Given my background, I can understand the need for a Manager who can attend to detail without compromising the division's overall profitability. Throughout my tenure with Merrill Lynch, I have worked to achieve these demanding goals. During the past 10 years, I personally led the division to cut costs by 12% while improving our overall accuracy rate to 98%. What this means for you is that as Constitution's Operations Manager I can bring the same skill, insight, and experience to motivate your staff to improve accuracy, streamline costs, and increase the effectiveness of the "back room," bringing Operations to the forefront of the Bank's profit centers. I will contact you shortly to see when we might meet again to expand upon this vital goal. Sincerely, Jim Williams home (555) 456-7890 Ms. Freida Gencliffe Vice President Gencliffe, Ackerman and Hahn 120 East Wacker Drive Chicago, IL 09876 Dear Ms. Gencliffe: I'm so pleased we were able to continue our discussions, even by phone, and I thank you for your time. As you can tell, I am very excited about the opportunity to work with you and the top-notch team you've developed at Gencliffe, Ackerman and Hahn. I am particularly inspired by your belief in the value of promoting from within, which seems to be a rare insight these days. For this reason, and to provide further proof of the unique talents I can bring to your team, I have enclosed a summary of my recent case findings. I am eager to prove my abilities and successes to you on a first-hand basis. I will keep in touch to see when we might meet again, and if there is any other information I can provide you in the meantime. Thank you again for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Jamie Paksson Ms. Elizabeth Porter VisionQuest 3 Reading Way Reading, PA 09876 Dear Ms. Porter: Thank you for your time during our luncheon last week. My journey from Conshohocken to Reading was a breeze, just as you predicted! VisionQuest's innovations are legendary among those "in the know," and it was fascinating to discover the efforts that went into your unique achievements. Those who benefit from your firm's breakthrough technologies in nonsurgical visual impairment treatments cannot imagine the dedication and training required of your teams. I would welcome the opportunity to join a team such as yours and have, therefore, enclosed a summary of my own accomplishments in research and design. Because my procedures and standards of measurement are so similar to those employed by VisionQuest, my assimilation with your team's methodology would be quite smooth -- a breeze, in fact, like my trip to Reading! Please let me know what additional information I can provide to help sway your hiring decision in my direction. I thank you again for your time. Sincerely, Alice DeNardo (555) 456-7890 home (555) 765-4321 work Mr. Richard Clark Vice President The Prince Company 5 Prince Place Albie, WY 09876 Dear Mr. Clark: It was a pleasure meeting you during my visit to the Albie, and I look forward to the opportunity to continue our discussion. After a delightful and very informative lunch with Susan Camelitto, I am tremendously excited by the prospect of working in the challenging and highly creative environment you've established at Prince. In return, I will bring you my proven strengths in research and new business development. As our meeting was cut short, I have taken the liberty of enclosing my picture so that I'm clearly in your mind until we meet again, and I can convince you that I'm the ideal addition to your team. Sincerely, Matt Aspin (555) 456-7890 work Mr. Arthur Manning, President Manning FiberOptics Suite 900 111 Roosevelt Parkway San Diego, CA 09876 Dear Arthur: I want to thank you for your time on Wednesday. Our discussion left me even more excited about your sales team -- and convinced that I'd be a perfect fit. As you know, I have dedicated the last 10 years of my career to electronic technologies. Now I'm eager to make that same commitment to a challenging growth business -- as Manning FiberOptics is. Hire me and you'll get a loyal employee who is honest and hard working, and who understands the industry, clients, and buyers; someone with an established, solid reputation who will add to your image and your bottom line. Arthur, I look forward to working with you to build big things together. Sincerely, Russell Brady Ms. Tanya Russo Director, Facilities Management The Sunray Corporation 800 Magnolia Drive Pensacola, FL 09876 Dear Ms. Russo: I enjoyed our meeting last week and appreciate your time and candor. As another ex-IBMer, your perspective was especially meaningful to me. My decade of experience in facilities management has made me a planner, a promoter, and a problem solver -- and it is a real pleasure to meet someone who values these qualities. Joining a division that recognizes and depends upon these strengths provides precisely the environment and challenge I seek. In return, I offer you my proven track record in keeping costs under control while always getting more from agents than they had planned to offer. Proven by the fact that I have been IBM's leading site manager for the past 3 years, and will use my superiors as references! I'd welcome the opportunity to work with you. I'll be in contact to see how we can make this happen. Sincerely, Voilet Nance Murray Mr. Walter Muhdi NetworCorp 1500 North First Street Suite 4400 Salt Lake City, UT 09876 Dear Mr. Muhdi: Thank you for the time you so generously spent with me this afternoon. Now that I know so much more about NetworCorp's varied activities, I am even more eager to be a part of the company's future. Certainly, your firm and I both thrive on creativity, innovation, the energy of the entrepreneur and of the deal maker. For this reason, as I mentioned during our meeting, I hope that you will think of me should an opportunity arise. Whether it be sales or marketing, dealing with the largest advertisers or new business development, working abroad or as your right-hand man, I would welcome the chance to work with you. I thank you again for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Damon P. Silhousky (555) 456-7890 Mrs. Helen Gold 24 Oakwood Lane Moorestown, NJ 09876 Dear Mrs. Gold, Thank you for introducing me to your brother, Charles Armour. I spoke with his secretary just this morning and have scheduled a meeting for next Wednesday at his Maple Shade plant! Armour Development has such a fine reputation in our area. I am looking forward to touring your brother's facilities, and gaining the benefit of any advice he may offer in my job search. Mrs. Gold, it was so kind of you to help me. I truly appreciate your interest. Just as when Tom and I were playing football for the high school, you're still cheering us on! That support means a lot. Thank you. Fondly, Mark Reed Mr. Ivan Dreshniv Delaware Job Corps 1223 Christiana Way Wilmington, DE 09876 Dear Mr. Dreshniv: Thank you for passing along my resume to William Ford. Mr. Ford has contacted me and we plan to meet on Tuesday, March 5. Our brief telephone conversation assures me that he will be a valuable resource in my job search. I will call you next week to let you know the details of our meeting. I appreciate your efforts on my behalf. Sincerely, Brain John Winakur Mr. Adam Hyland Hyland, Kincaid, Stern 8484 Soundview Drive Bristol Beach, RI 09876 Dear Mr. Hyland: It was a pleasure speaking with you on the phone last week. I want to thank you for arranging for me to meet with Bill Stern on Monday, May 24 at 10:30 a.m. In preparation for this meeting, I am reviewing the Annual Report you sent me. I am looking forward to meeting Mr. Stern and discovering more about Hyland, Kincaid, Stern. Thank you again for your kind assistance. Sincerely, Moira O'Herlihy Ms. Irene Bernstein Creative Director Bruner and Bernstein Advertising 359 Madison Avenue New York, NY 09876 Dear Ms. Bernstein: Gracias! Merci! Danke schoen! Thank you! In any language, my appreciation is genuine. You gave me your time and your expert advice this past Tuesday, and I am very grateful. You reassured me that despite tough times in the ad business, opportunities do exist for those willing to create them -- and nontraditional marketing seems to be a terrific place to start. Thanks to my experience in strategic planning and packaging, I am ideally equipped to identify and exploit new markets, especially on the international level. Your suggestion to contact Victor Morelli is much appreciated. I have just mailed him my resume with hopes to discuss with him the overseas plans of Victory Advertising to which, I am certain, I can contribute fresh ideas, valuable experience, and strategic insight. With sincerest thanks, Mercedes H. Grulnord Ms. Joan Pozzi Executive Recruiting Company 990 Madison Avenue New York, NY 09876 Dear Ms. Pozzi: Thank you for referring me to Bill Hancock at Manhattan Legal Services. Mr. Hancock called me today and we have scheduled a meeting for next Wednesday, the 17th of April. I couldn't have been more pleased when he indicated that it was you who referred me to him. My sincerest thanks for thinking of me, and making the time for an introduction. You have become a valuable resource in my job search, and I am grateful for all you have done. I will let you know the results of my meeting with Mr. Hancock. With best regards, WIlliam P. Harmon, III Mr. Victor Hernandez American Products, Inc. 427 Claremont San Antonio, TX 09876 Dear Mr. Hernandez: Thank you for your time and interest during our meeting last week. American Products' planned expansion into European and Russian markets is as fascinating as it is challenging. While the opportunity to participate in this exciting new venture is extremely appealing, I must, unfortunately, withdraw my name from consideration. I had hoped to be able to accept an international assignment, and have only recently been offered additional responsibilities in my current position, which will also involve limited travel overseas. Nonetheless, I want to thank you for allowing me to explore what promises to be a career-making opportunity for the executive fortunate enough to be selected. Meeting you was a pleasure, and I will stay in touch. My best wishes for your continued success. All the best, Myron Greenthal Ms. Angela Terchetti GNC, Inc. 1200 Lincoln Avenue Atlanta, GA 09876 Dear Ms. Terchetti: I have just returned from my second interview with Phyllis Anderson at Anderson, Wilton and Slatsky. She was thrilled with your comments about my performance during my tenure with you at DPC International -- and so am I! As you know, I am anxious to further my career, and working with Ms. Anderson will supplement my experience in a meaningful and productive way. I am so grateful to you for providing me with a positive recommendation. One day the opportunity will arise for me to repay your kindness, and you can be certain that I will be jumping to your side on that day. In the meantime, with deepest thanks I am, Nancy E. Alderson Mr. William Freemont Freemont, Mason and Lazard 150 Avenue of Hope Trallin, North Carolina 09876 Dear Mr. Freemont: I cannot let another day pass without letting you know how very valuable I found your Jobhunting Seminar at North Carolina University last month. Your suggestions, ideas, and tips were very enlightening, and I have already put them to use in my job search. Of greatest benefit for many of us was the motivation you instilled. Continuing the search can be especially daunting for students who compete against the hundreds of thousands of graduates flooding the market each spring, not to mention the many Americans already looking for work. I shall remember your advice every day until I have successfully secured employment -- when I hope to have the chance to pass it along to other students graduating in the years to come. Best regards, Betty Anne Marville North Carolina University Class of 199X (555) 765-4321 Professor James Price Economics Department State University University City, MO 09876 Dear Professor Price: I owe you dual thanks. First, for serving as a reference for me to aid in my job search and, second, for your kind words. I have just heard from John Brunswick at St. Louis Federal, and Leslie Rubin at the South County Credit Union. They both informed me that you offered high praise of my work and my attitude. As a result of your recommendations, I have been invited to join South County's training program. I should learn my status at St. Louis Federal shortly, and you can be certain that I will contact you as soon as I receive this decision. So, for your dual role in my search, I thank you once, and I thank you again. Fondly, Jennifer Lawrence Ms. Miriam Goettel Associate Publisher Windy City News 404 State Street Chicago, IL 09876 Dear Ms. Goettel: Just a note to thank you for a most enjoyable early Monday morning meeting.

Through hands-on experience at all levels of Warehousing, Production, and Sales (detailed in the enclosed resume), I have developed superior analytical and interpersonal skills, marketing expertise, a perspective and sophistication unique in our industry -- all of which I can put to work for you. I produce an endless supply of new ideas. I can generate solutions to problems where none seem possible. And I will teach, inspire, and motivate others to do the same. I look forward to speaking with you soon to set up a convenient time for us to meet. I can be reached at (555) 765-4321 during the day or evening. Sincerely, Charles S. Grentham Mr. Albert Martinelli Millerman Fashions 1411 Broadway New York, NY 09876 RE: Product Development Dear Mr. Martinelli: The contributions I have made on behalf of my previous employers preview what I can offer Millerman Fashions. As Associate Product Developer in Ladies Accessories: -- I interact on a daily basis with existing and potential vendors around the world to initiate, foster, and maintain these key relationships. -- Researching market trends, I identify those that can be exploited to bolster product merchandising. -- I developed a new product line for an important National Account that reduced inventory overages and increased sales. -- On the administrative side, I am fully responsible for coordinating sample lines for the National Sales Force and controlling stock levels. In my previous role as Assistant Showroom Manager: -- I developed new systems and procedures that dramatically reduced processing errors on national account sales. -- I served as central liaison for the West Coast region, communicating new product information on a weekly basis. -- I supervised the overall operation of the 6-product-line New York showroom and trained all new associates in showroom maintenance and sales. In each position, I introduced innovative products and procedures that had direct and positive impact on the company's bottom line profitability -- and I can do the same for Millerman Fashions. May we have the chance to meet and explore this promising opportunity in greater detail? I will call you shortly. Sincerely, Mary Alice Preston (555) 456-7890 office Ms. Catherine M. Scully, Vice President Corporate Communications SYTEX, Inc. 422 Bethlehem Way Augusta, GA 09876 Dear Ms. Scully: Your advertisement for an Events Planner was of particular interest to me because I encounter so few organizations that recognize the unique value of special events. Relegating this function to already overworked marketing departments, where planning withers and presentation suffocates, most firms waste this vital opportunity. Since SYTEX is not like most firms and I am not like most Events Planners, perhaps we should meet. I would like to discover more about your events schedule. And I would like to describe my experience designing, planning, preparing, promoting, and running annual meetings, company-wide divisional meetings, regional breakfast meetings, trade shows, and seminars. I have a special expertise in creating events that generate important new business potential while enhancing the corporate image. In addition, this past year I orchestrated a tour of the Greek Islands for our major shareholders. Not only did this event produce additional stock purchases among our touring group, but through carefully controlled publicity, "less major" stockholders added to their holdings quite significantly as well. I have enclosed my resume along with a description of other programs I have designed and the results they have produced. It would be an honor to meet you in person and to be considered as a member of the SYTEX staff. Sincerely, Ariadne S. Webb (555) 765-4321 work (555) 456-7890 home Enclosures Director, Human Resources Santangelo Resources, Inc. P.O. Box 1111 Needham, MA 09876 To the Director of Human Resources: Your recent advertisement in the City Times attracted my attention because I can offer you the precise qualifications you're seeking in a Public Relations Manager. Possibly at a lower cost than a more senior executive might demand. But with no less experience. As you'll see on the enclosed resume, I currently serve as Associate Public Relations Manager for Columbia Data Systems. Because the company's success depends upon its reputation among a cross section of users, I have worked diligently (and often around the clock) to secure positive publicity for Columbia. In a wide range of media. With a diversity of "stories." Despite decreasing allocations. Of greater significance is that I fought and dispelled the harmful rumors that surfaced as a result of the company's microchip disaster last fall. The crisis management skills I have acquired are critical to any major corporate entity operating under the scrutiny of today's news-hungry media circus. I am confident that the media contacts, creativity, communication skills, and crisis management abilities I possess will prove invaluable to your firm. I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you. If you will call or leave a message on my home answering machine, I will return your call promptly. Sincerely, Thomas Hoover (555) 765-4321 daytime Mr. Presently Hiring Vice President The Successful Company RE: Your ad for a P.O.

Although I am certain that you receive hundreds of resumes from people seeking a position with your agency, I urge you to consider mine. The mix of skills I possess differs from those of other graphic designers. For example: -- As a seasoned Art Director/Graphic Designer, I possess extensive corporate experience, working with many of today's leading firms: Met Life, Prudential, IBM, Federal Express, and Sony, among others. -- Well versed in both traditional and computer-aided design and production, I am adept at using Microsoft Word as well as QuarkXPress, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Photoshop. -- I have successfully joined forces with clients, management, account, and creative staff to create solutions that work for a range of businesses within a cross section of industries. With my unique combination of qualifications, you can welcome to your agency a genuine creative talent and true professional -- just as I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you. I will take the liberty of calling you shortly to see when we might get together.

Throughout my 8 years in marketing, the start of a new year invariably produced fresh ideas and renewed excitement for launching marketing initiatives -- and now I can offer your firm a new perspective, as well. With the rapid evolution of the financial services industry, my role as a marketing and advertising manager exposed me to a range of promotional challenges previously unknown in banking. I mastered the ability to identify and quantify objectives, refine them in response to market research and develop detailed plans and budgets. I learned to think in entirely new ways, to motivate creative talent and produce campaigns, promotions, and individual sales pieces that added significantly to my employer's bottom line. These are the skills that define the successful Senior Marketing Associate in any industry. I offer them to your firm -- along with my in-depth experience in strategic planning for retail, commercial, and business-to-business advertising. I look forward to hearing from you.

Invariably, in promoting the concept of goal-oriented performance management, the organizations with which I have worked were pleased to discover that what's missing in many other quality initiatives is precisely what I have learned in over 16 years of building high-performance teams. I have combined my methodology with the tools of quality and process management to create a synergy that is far superior to either approach standing alone. As Director of your Management and Quality Training program, I will successfully lead your staff members to challenge the traditional "not my job" orientation. Instead they will: -- Adopt a broad view, questioning and looking beyond existing methods of operating, in order to invest in the future. -- Raise the overall level of their commitment (despite setbacks, lack of support, and the passage of time) through the creation and nourishment of a vision of quality. The rewards are profound. The process is painless when you have the proper training and commitment at the helm. Let's get together so that we can discuss this in person. I will call you shortly. Sincerely, Samuel H. Wong Work: (555) 765-4321 Home: (555) 456-7890 Dr. Louis Dresser-Smythe Director of Administration State University St. Albans, VT 09876 RE: Director of Human Resources and Administrative Services Dear Dr. Dresser-Smythe: The position described in your advertisement seems to have been written for me. I possess the precise qualifications you seek, and have been searching for just this opportunity to apply my business background to academic life. Allow me to elaborate on the enclosed resume to demonstrate the strengths I can bring to your institution. Human Resources Expertise: My employee relations responsibilities have made me skilled at conflict resolution, staffing, development, and personal counseling. For administrative hiring and staff recruiting, I develop position profiles, direct and provide input for employee evaluations and compensation, supervise training and benefits administration, ensure legal compliance and advance policy. Administrative Expertise: Acting as the de facto Director of Administration, I supervise office and facilities services, marketing administration, and the research library. Because I have successfully directed projects involving the structuring and implementation of a library catalogue, office redesign, equipment planning and acquisition, marketing database design, and planning a newsletter series, I can spearhead these and other initiatives on your behalf. Exceptional Written Communication Skills: My ongoing work creating policy statements, project summaries, and correspondence for myself and the company's senior management provides you with a valuable on-staff resource. Throughout my successful career, I have maintained my connection to academia through my graduate studies in the sociology of education. The university environment is one in which I am well-versed, challenged, and entirely comfortable. I would welcome the opportunity to apply my skills and expertise in an academic setting such as yours. I offer you, in return, a colleague with the focus and ability to perform effectively under pressure -- talents refined through 12 years in a fast-paced corporate setting. Sincerely, B. Martha Gordon (555) 456-7890 work Mr. Jonathan Bates Americana Corporation 9500 Corporate Drive Detroit, Michigan 09876 Dear Mr. Bates: The fact that you have advertised for a Quality Management Director (City Times, January 5) demonstrates your commitment to realign the corporate culture. It is this same commitment that has defined my career. Indeed, over the past 25 years in corporate training and human resource development, my focus has been on supporting innovation and leadership -- on designing rather than adapting to the future. I am certain that my past achievements augur similar productivity improvements for Americana. For example, I have led corporate management teams to: -Commit themselves entirely to the goal of superior quality in every aspect of service and performance. -Drive this commitment into every level of the organization's culture and operations so that it becomes the everyday way of working. -Free managers from their traditional focus on authority and control so that they can embrace critical leadership ideals. -Build these transformations into an existing infrastructure, thus avoiding costly and time-consuming changes that erode success. Undoubtedly, these are the objectives you seek to realize at Americana -- and I would consider it a privilege to explore them further with you. I feel certain that my background and expertise (described in detail on the enclosed resume) would be a singular asset to your organization. I can be reached at (555) 456-7890. Sincerely, T. Wilson Johanson Mr. Joseph Runnell, Senior Vice President Boston First Financial Corporation 1343 Boyleston Street Boston, MA 09876 Dear Mr. Runnell:

With the financial services industry breaking new ground every day, there is no time to waste in your search for a Director of Corporate Marketing. So I won't waste yours. I am a Strategic Marketing Planning/Program Manager with 20+ years experience in services marketing -- the most recent 8 years in telecommunications and, prior to that, in international transportation. As head of Marketing Services for The New England Telephone Company, I function as an internal Marketing Consultant to the organization's Strategic Business Units -- managing a staff of 14 marketing professionals and a $2MM annual marketing budget, coordinating all advertising, research, direct mail and sales management initiatives. Marketing program improvements that I introduced raised the visibility of the organization and its products while simultaneously trimming Marketing Department overhead by 50%. Complementing my broad marketing background is my experience as Controller at an $80MM division of TransInternational Airlines, at that time a $2 billion, Fortune 500 international transportation company. In addition to macro production-revenue forecasting, I directed complete product costing/pricing and overall government regulatory agency (CAB) financial reporting and compliance. Advances I introduced at TransInternational significantly enhanced the competitiveness of the airline's product and, in the (please turn) (continued) process, I became a recognized expert in airline operations and economics, demonstrating the depth of my commitment to product. The success of my marketing programs during the last dozen years is directly attributable to several unique talents I can offer Boston First: -- I leverage my strategic planning skills to successfully convert Management's business plans into achievable marketing initiatives. -- I maximize my financial controls experience to ensure that those same marketing programs are firmly grounded in economic reality. -- I creatively empower subordinates with increasing program management responsibilities. -- Through strict adherence to a process of Total Quality Management, I guarantee that all marketing programs managed by my department are completed on time, within budget, to the client's satisfaction. These are the proven achievements and talents I can bring to Boston First. Let's get together to discuss this opportunity in greater detail. I can be reached during the day at (555) 456-7890 or in the evening at (555) 765-4321. Sincerely, Arthur L. Lewis Mr. Abraham Silver President U.S. Manufacturing Corporation 23-34 Winton Way Madison, WI 09876 Dear Mr. Silver: In your search for a Director of Productivity Improvement, you are focusing on, fostering, generating, expanding, and repeating results. But first you have to find someone who has achieved them. My resume presents my background and qualifications. Allow me to introduce myself via the results I have achieved. In the '80s at Eagle Steel, and now at DVC Equipment, I designed and implemented programs to foster breakthrough thinking. Learning to turn everyday obstacles and interruptions into innovation and success, our task teams: -Increased both short- and long-term ROI by more than 38%. -Improved cross-functional and cross-organizational teamwork by distinguishing interpretation from fact in order to take decisive actions. -Realized quantum leaps in productivity performance, exceeding 80% in some cases, that went well beyond typical incremental improvements. These are real, measurable, and profitable results. And they are reproducible at U.S. Manufacturing. I'd like very much to meet with you in person. Please give me a call at (555) 765-4321. I'll alert my assistant to put your call through at once. Best regards, Jennifer Forsythe Dr. Andrew Milhouse, President The State University at Aurora Campus Circle Aurora, SC 09876 Dear Dr. Milhouse: $500 million is not the most. It's the average amount of money my fund raising programs have generated for hospitals, private secondary schools, government programs, colleges, and universities. This figure, attained through 22 years of intensive fund raising experience, equips me to assume the responsibilities of Aurora's Director of Development as rapidly and effectively as your needs demand. I have enclosed summaries of my background and those projects that are most germane to your situation. As you'll see, I have regularly built the coalitions of citizens, alumni, business and community leaders with the power to make significant contributions, and to attract major funding from others. My success at The Broderick Group has been enormously gratifying. However, I am eager to sacrifice the rigors of city life for the pleasures of the country and academia, an environment I enjoyed years ago as a Professor of Economics. Rather than let my credentials speak for themselves, I would enjoy meeting with you in person. Business frequently brings me to your area so I will call you shortly to schedule an appointment. With best regards, Beth Daniels (555) 456-7890 Enclosures Ms. Regina Lin, President UniFex Corporation 18 Southern Parkway Miami, Florida 09876 RE:Your Ad for a CFO Dear Ms. Lin: You're looking at an actual demonstration of the results I can produce for you. At PSB, I've expanded profit margins to 70%. How? By cutting the cost of purchased goods by up to 25%. By cutting the cost of purchased services by up to 38%. By rigorously examining every expenditure to ensure maximum value at minimum cost. So why not hire me to do for UniFex what I do best? I increase margins. In fact, as you can see, I can't resist expanding any margin I can get my hands on. Sincerely, Richard C. Royce (555) 456-7890 Resume enclosed Ms. Dianne Williams, President TWI International RE: Your ad for a CFO 850 North Delaware Avenue City Times, May 5, 199X Philadelphia, PA 09876 Dear Ms. Williams: Yes, a Chief Financial Officer must be an expert in cash flow planning and management, financial accounting, the preparation of tax statements, inventory pricing, contract negotiations, sales, and profitability projections -- and I am. But the superior CFO has also produced the following results -- as I have: -Completely restructured business liability insurance to reduce costs by 15% and increase coverage. -Solicited, selected, and managed a major lending bank to design cash management sweep/credit link to maximize overnight investment returns. -Cultivated a reliable source of nonbank capital to discount current accounts receivable to finance the acquisition of additional inventory. This is simply an overview of my most recent accomplishments. It should demonstrate the commitment I make to cost control and heightened return. Yes, I am currently employed and would appreciate your confidentiality when contacting me. But I will make myself available to meet at your convenience. Sincerely, E. Darrell Brighton-Fisk (555) 456-7890 office (555) 765-4321 home Ms. April Mendorff Mendorff Personnel Agency 18800 Olive Street Road St. Louis, MO 09876 Dear Ms. Mendorff: Thank you for your time and the information you gave me during our phone conversation this morning. I have enclosed my resume, as you requested, and appreciate any leads you can provide. Permit me to summarize what is on my resume. My training experience covers corporate personnel (for PrimeFirst Bancorporation) as well as automotive industry sales professionals (for General Motors). I have effectively: -Conducted needs analyses. -Designed specialized training programs. -Designed classroom instruction curricula. -Taught one-on-one. -Created and administered a Management Development Program to support PrimeFirst's domestic operations. I am outgoing and hard working. My natural enthusiasm supports my ability to teach, inspire, and motivate others from the entry level trainee to participants in Senior Management Training Programs. I will contact you shortly to see when we might get together. I look forward to discovering whether I can assist your clients in achieving their training objectives. Sincerely, Howard MacNeil (555) 456-7890 Director, Human Resources P.O. Box 1000 The City Times Lincoln, NE 09876 To the Director of Human Resources: Your ad for an Entry Level position caught my attention as I prepare to begin my professional career upon graduation this spring from State University. I say "professional" because I have worked steadily throughout college, gaining valuable experience that equips me to present your firm with advantages others may not offer. For example, as a Resident Assistant for a 250-person coed dormitory, I acquired strong leadership and interpersonal skills. I am now able to think quickly on my feet in emergency situations, and in those requiring quick assessment of many factors in order to make appropriate decisions. Dealing with the diverse concerns of students, parents and faculty, I have become adept at operating with the proper mix of authority, diplomacy, and tact. While working in this demanding position, I achieved a 3.75 cumulative grade point average. My double major, Communications and Political Science, provided me with a thorough foundation in principles that affect businesses every day. I would welcome the chance to discuss openings at your firm. If you will contact me at (555) 456-7890, we can schedule a meeting. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Bert L. Vymer, Jr. (555) 456-7890 Resume enclosed Name, Title Company Name Company Address City, State ZIP Dear Mr./Ms. (Name): Because I have long admired your achievement in building a successful company, I was dismayed to learn of your recent layoffs. In today's economy, such a situation presents the vexing conundrum: how to maximize opportunities for growth with diminished human resources? To move forward powerfully, effectively, and rapidly, today's employees must align themselves with common goals and with common ways to achieve these goals. Invariably, in promoting the concept of goal-oriented performance management, the organizations with which I have worked were pleased to discover that what's missing in many other quality initiatives is precisely what I have learned in over 16 years of building high-performance teams. I have combined my methodology with the tools of quality and process management to create a synergy that is far superior to either approach standing alone. This background arms me to lead a firm such as yours in generating results as impressive as those I helped my current organization achieve: -Margins surpassing industry averages by 23%. -Operations productivity 45% over previous levels. -Domestic market share growth exceeding 30%. Having recently engineered the downsizing of our business-to-business Marketing Services area, I am now anxious to apply my expertise to situations in which the pace of growth and opportunity represents more of a challenge. I will be relocating to the Seattle area shortly. It would be a privilege to meet with you personally to discuss the opportunity to add to your team. I will follow up by calling you soon to schedule an appointment. Sincerely, Name Telephone Name, Title Company Name Company Address City, State ZIP Dear Mr./Ms. (Name): Your advertisement addresses my qualifications so ideally, one would think we've met. And we should -- because I can offer you the precise skills for which you're searching. As you'll see on the enclosed resume, the depth of my experience in sales offers you the opportunity to hire a real pro who needs little or no training, and is comfortable and successful with cold canvassing. Solid sales experience is only the first of my qualifications -- I have a successful track record and the recommendations to back it up. Proven ability to translate consumer desires into purchase decisions is only the second of my qualifications -- I have sold effectively within religious, upscale, and ethnic markets. Superior customer service delivery is only the third qualification I possess -- I project warmth, enthusiasm, and a pleasant attitude. In addition, I am able to work effectively and independently in the field without requiring costly, time-consuming supervision. Perhaps most importantly, I have developed strong presentation and sales closing skills that I can put to work immediately with the solid base of contacts I will bring to your organization. My resume, which is enclosed, details my career, accomplishments, and my education (BA in Economics/MBA.) I would be pleased to discuss my qualifications and salary/commission requirements in greater detail when we meet in person. Sincerely, Name Telephone Director, Human Resources P.O. Box 1000 City Times Wynfair, PA 09876 To the Director of Human Resources: Enclosed with this letter is my resume, which details my education, work experience, and computer capabilities -- all important criteria in your search to fill the entry-level position that you advertised. Allow me to introduce the person with whom you and your colleagues will work, should you choose to interview and hire me. I possess strong moral and ethical principles, which led me to put in long, hard hours at school and part-time jobs in order to succeed in a challenging educational environment. These values also motivate me to perform diligently and loyally to contribute to my employer's profitability. Unlike others, I do not expect to begin as a Vice President. I know that it takes commitment, dedication, and intelligence to rise within a firm, all of which I offer you. As one of six children, I also possess an active sense of humor, which has been useful in defusing difficult situations. I have the patience to see an assignment through to completion. I am comfortable delivering presentations to a group, working as part of a team and helping others succeed. It would be an honor to meet with you personally to discover more about the opening at your firm and how I can assist your organization in its growth. Please contact me at the address or phone number listed above. I will make myself available at your convenience. Thank you. Sincerely, Noreen Schimmer Director, Human Resources P.O. Box 1000 City Times Boulder, CO 09876 To the Director of Human Resources: For the entry-level opening at your firm, why not consider someone like me with a strong academic background and real world business experience? As you'll see on the enclosed resume, I have recently completed my undergraduate studies at State University. My perseverance and consistent effort enabled me to maintain my Dean's List status while working on a part-time basis. Rather than work at a mindless job that might pay the bills but teach me little of practical value, I chose to open and operate my own painting company. I selected and trained crew members, developed an advertising program, borrowed the money to cover start-up costs (which was repaid in full after just 6 months); and handled scheduling, payroll, and tax reporting. Over the five years I've been running my business, I have served more than 80 different customers, 54 of which have called us back to complete other jobs. My experience has prepared me to meet the demands of the business world, and I am anxious to apply my strengths and talents in the corporate environment. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to explore this possibility. Thank you for considering me. Sincerely, Joseph E. Reed (555) 765-4321 Resume enclosed Director, Human Resources American Business Machines 46-890 St. Andrew Road RE: Your Ad for an Baltimore, MD 09876 Entry Level Position To the Director of Human Resources: When my mother and father sent me from our village in China to America, I was fortunate to live with relatives who encouraged me to excel -- and I have. I quickly mastered English, a new culture, acquired exceptional computer skills in high school, achieved and maintained a 3.50 average at State University. When I was granted a full scholarship, I was fortunate to have the time to devote to volunteer work in addition to my studies. I served for four years on the University's Community Relations Board as a liaison between the school, neighboring politicians, residents, and businesses. This valuable experience prepared me to deal effectively with consumers, business clients, shareholders, co-workers, and executives at every level of management. When I graduate this May, I will be fortunate once again if I have secured employment with a firm such as yours. My ability to work productively with others, drive to excel, and unique cultural perspective equip me to become a valuable member of your organization. I hope you will contact me to arrange an interview so that I can provide you with additional information to supplement what appears on my resume (enclosed). I look forward to hearing from you.

I have enclosed another copy of my resume for your convenience. On May 25, I will graduate from State University with a major in Economics, a minor in Business Administration, and a concentration in Mathematics. I am planning a career in financial services, for which my education has ideally prepared me. Ms. Levin and others have spoken highly of your firm's training program. It is precisely the type of challenge I seek. In return, I offer First Federal a loyal and hard working employee who already possesses a solid foundation of relevant knowledge. Unlike other applicants who may have a more general education, my training would allow me to be a highly productive member of your training program. As a banker, I would be able to more quickly put this supplemental training to profitable use for the Bank. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you. I can be in Boston any Friday this semester, or any day after graduation. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your consideration.

I gained hands-on experience in properly managing revenues, time, and employees. As you can see, I am goal-oriented, driven, and not afraid of hard work -- qualifications vital to anyone who will be a productive staff member for your firm. As I would like to be. I look forward to hearing from you so that we may schedule an interview. Sincerely, Bill T.

Example Cover Letters 4Ms. Sherry Sites Steckler Financial, Inc. 1357 Morning Street Winston, NC 09876 Dear Ms. Sites: Ralph Enwood suggested I contact you regarding the current opening in your brokerage division. With my MBA firmly in hand this coming July and several years of real world experience, I would welcome the opportunity to contribute to the success your firm already enjoys. I have enclosed my resume to supply specific information on my background. Allow me to provide you with the highlights: -- As a manager of finance for a discount brokerage group, I gained a profound understanding of the constant demands a consumer customer base makes on traders and support staff -- and how to meet these demands. -- I earned my Series 7 and Series 63 licenses while working full time -- a sound illustration of my work ethic and ability to complete simultaneous, challenging projects. -- I have been regularly praised by my superiors and professors for my written and verbal communication skills. I work well with others and enjoy assuming additional responsibility. I would very much like to meet with you to explore your operations and the possibility of employment. The opportunity to join a winning team such as yours -- and add to its success -- is one I would relish. Sincerely, Rita Lenghorn (555) 456-7890 cc: Ralph Enwood Mr. Robert McCarthy Director, Customer Service Edison Electric 7600 Wilshire Boulevard Irvine, CA 09876 Dear Mr. McCarthy: It is tempting to telephone in response to your ad for a Customer Service Representative since the majority of service transactions take place over the phone these days. Instead, I enclose my resume as you requested, providing you with in-depth information on the 11 years I have spent dealing with the public. Throughout this time, I have successfully resolved customer claims and accurately recorded complex product orders with consistent praise from my supervisors. More importantly, I have enhanced each company's reputation, keeping existing customers satisfied and transforming first-time buyers into loyal, repeat purchasers. I would appreciate the chance to do the same for your organization and will call you shortly so that you can experience my skills on a first-hand basis. Sincerely, Jeannette Flavio 555-456-0789 (evenings) Sales Manager The Yellow Pages RE: Your City Times P.O. Box 1111 ad for a Sales Rep Lansing, MI 09876 To the Sales Manager: I suspect you'll find very few candidates with a background such as mine -- and it's one I'd like to put to work on your behalf. As you'll see on the enclosed resume, the depth of my experience in sales offers you the opportunity to hire a real pro who needs little or no training and who is comfortable and successful with cold canvassing. Moreover, having worked as a Sales Representative in a variety of industries, I have the background to construct sales pitches meaningful to the variety of different businesses that advertise in The Yellow Pages ... to turn interest into revenue for you. It is only due to the long-term economic volatility (resulting in downsizing, layoffs, mergers, and business failures) that I have held positions at numerous companies. However, it is this fact that allows me to offer you such an unusual breadth of experience. A personal interview would allow me to demonstrate my talents. I look forward to hearing from you so that we can schedule a meeting. Sincerely, Reed L. Larson (555) 765-4321 Ms. Dorothy Gilbert Andresen Blooming Brides RE: Your ad for 18 Main Street a Sales Consultant Greenwich, CT 09876 City Times, 11/20/9X Dear Ms. Andresen: In presenting myself as a candidate for the position of Sales Consultant, I present you with a valuable opportunity: To hire an experienced, accomplished expert who can simultaneously handle demanding, often stressed clientele with kid gloves. Having planned weddings for my own daughters, I am adept at dealing with the multifaceted stress of the wedding gown selection and fitting process. Patiently, I assessed the virtues of lace, organza, tulle, and silk -- the covered or off-the-shoulder design -- knee, calf, or floor lengths. Gracefully, I balanced my daughters' concerns with those of their friends, husbands-to-be, even mothers-in-law. Delicately, I increased our maximum budget as warranted to include all essential accessories. Conscientiously, I maintained our selection and fitting schedule. Unbelievably, I enjoyed it immensely -- all four times! Through it all, I was amazed to discover that my hands-on experience proved consistently more effective than that of our sales representatives, which is why I offer myself as a candidate. After some time at home, I am now rejoining the work force. I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you. Please give me a call at (555) 456-7890 day or evening so that we can schedule an appointment. Sincerely, Bea Bruner Mr. Rolando Eden Godiva Chocolates 152 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 09876 Dear Mr. Eden: I simply cannot resist responding to your ad for a Sales Representative! Solid sales experience is only the first of my qualifications -- I have a successful track record and the recommendations to back it up. Proven ability to translate consumer desires into purchase decisions is only the second of my qualifications -- I have sold effectively within religious, upscale, and ethnic markets. Superior customer service delivery is only the third qualification I possess -- I project warmth, enthusiasm, and a pleasant attitude. Above all and unlike almost everyone in the world, I love chocolate but can resist the temptation to sample the inventory! Combined, these qualifications make me a prime candidate for your sales position. I hope you'll contact me for a personal interview. I can be reached at (555) 456-7890 during the day and at (555) 765-4321 during the evening. Sincerely, Riley B. Kruger, Jr. Enclosed: Resume Mr. Andrew Hoffman Town and Country Home 84 Manning Way Evanston, IL 09876 Dear Mr. Hoffman: If your advertisement in the City Times was written to attract my attention, it worked like a charm! As the enclosed resume demonstrates, my background, experience, and proven accomplishments combine to make me the ideal Senior Buyer for Town and Country Home. I have held a variety of positions in retail management with a particular emphasis in buying, having served as a Buyer for B. Altman & Co. with responsibility for purchasing in both domestic and international markets. In this position, I acquired a profound understanding of the unique preferences of the upscale consumer, which could help you avoid costly experiments (not to mention embarrassing failures) with this demanding market segment. My current involvement in the direction of the development of innovative consumer product lines will also be of value to you. I have been personally instrumental in engineering successful promotional programs that produced annual sales well over $3 million each. Although I am secure in my current position, I realize that future growth may be limited. The opportunity to lend my expertise to Town and Country Home would be an exciting one. I hope you will give me a call so that we may schedule a convenient time to meet. Your discretion in contacting me is most appreciated. Sincerely, Vivan L. Steers (555) 456-7890 work telephone (555) 765-4321 answering service Mr. Presently Hiring Vice President The Successful Company P.O.

The references I'll provide will support them. Please call me at (555) 456-7890 to schedule an interview. I promise you won't be disappointed. Sincerely, Name Mr. Lionel Adams, President Surplus Warehouse, Inc. 230 Crossways Boulevard Tulsa, OK 09876 Dear Mr. Adams: As Vice President of Retail Operations for a nationwide office supply chain, I reduced operating expenditures by more than $2 million last year. I further developed tightened security measures accounting for a 50% reduction in losses due to employee and customer theft. Proven results such as these are critical to your firm's ongoing profitability -- and they are precisely what I can bring to Surplus Warehouse. Having engineered the planning and launch of 54 retail locations across the country, which generated an additional $350 million in sales, I can direct your company in its ongoing expansion efforts with ease and expertise.

My in-depth experience with entrepreneurs and with companies whose annual sales range from $1 million to $50 million positions me to identify and assess the potential of growing firms with skilled management and promising customer sales. I have handled highly leveraged transactions, recapitalizations of LBO financings, turnarounds, workouts, bridge financings, and DIP credit facilities. Moreover, I have established long-term relationships with attorneys and accountants who have referred clients to me and will continue to do so. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss with you the numerous benefits my background could provide to Prime First. Let's get together to explore the possibilities. I will contact you to schedule an appointment.

In addition to macro production-revenue forecasting, I directed complete product costing/pricing and overall government regulatory agency (CAB) financial reporting and compliance. -- Advances I introduced at TransInternational significantly enhanced the competitiveness of the airline's product and, in the (please turn) (continued) process, I became a recognized expert in airline operations and economics, demonstrating the depth of my commitment to product. Having recently engineered the downsizing of our business-to-business Marketing Services area, I am now anxious to apply my marketing communications expertise to situations in which the pace of growth and opportunity represents more of a challenge.

I can help you avoid such troubling circumstances through my ability to identify employee misconduct and then handle it according to proper legal procedures ?yet with discretion. My experience as a DEA Special Agent and Inspector General for the City's Housing Department is unique among my peers.

My preparation for, and participation in, hearings at the state and local level will serve you well in those rare instances where litigation is necessary.

It's essential, therefore, that the private Security Officer you hire possess in-depth experience, broad-based training, and the proven ability to perform in difficult, dangerous situations.

My resume (enclosed) describes the extensive range of projects on which I've worked, both commercial and residential. Throughout, I have received consistent praise from my superiors and have enjoyed the ongoing support of co-workers, many of whom have offered to serve as references for me. The pressures of the current economic downturn have forced my current employer to reduce his full-time staff. For this reason, I would welcome the opportunity to interview for a position at Felipe Construction. I can be reached at (555) 456-7890. Sincerely, John Noonan Mr. Allen G.

As a result, the relationship between real estate and overall strategic planning has become more critical than ever. Only a seasoned real estate professional like myself can accurately balance the impact of real estate assets on your firm's business and financial strategy, profitability, and risk mitigation. For more than 25 years, I have represented public and private sector clients in every aspect of the real estate transaction.

Firstly, I can deliver precisely the attributes, experience, and background you seek in a Senior Architect. As you'll see on the enclosed resume, I have a strong background in commercial interiors and retail design, honed through 12 years with a major New York-based commercial firm.

Box 1111 Altaverde, CA 09876 RE: 5/15/9X City Times ad for Word Processors Dear Mr. Bradley: It would be a pleasure to meet with you so that I might demonstrate how my abilities fit your needs precisely. As you'll see on the enclosed resume, I am proficient in a variety of word processing programs as well as stenography. I am experienced in handling general office duties and answering phones cordially and courteously. What my resume does not reveal is my professional demeanor and appearance. In a business environment, these qualities are of the utmost importance in dealing with clients as well as co-workers. In me, you'll discover a reliable, detail-oriented and extremely hard-working associate -- one who will serve as a model to encourage other staff members to demonstrate the same high standard of professionalism. If you will contact me at (555) 456-7890, we can schedule an appointment. Sincerely, Aqueelah Johnson (555) 456-7890 Ms. Presently Hiring Vice President The Successful Company P.O. Box 1111 Business City, ST 09876 RE: Your ad for a (position) , City Times, 11/20/9X Dear Ms. Hiring: In today's challenging economic climate, many people will respond to your advertisement. Few will be interviewed. One will be hired. However . . . Of the many to respond, few will be as qualified as I am, having 12 years of in-depth, bonafide industry experience. No one will bring my track record and the expertise I can offer expertise that equips me to start delivering results for you immediately. With minimal training. With minimal disruption. With maximum positive effect for your bottom line. I will make myself available to meet with you at your convenience. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Name Telephone Mr. Sheldon Ballou Imprint Publishing RE: 5/15/9X City Times 19 Greene Street ad for Word Processors New York, NY 09876 Dear Mr. Ballou: Why waste another minute of your valuable time -- time that could be spent more productively if you had reliable, expert word processing support? Now that you have my resume in your hands (see attached), you can end your search. I am an exceptional typist (85 wpm) and can work in Microsoft Word, Quattro, WordPerfect 5.1, 5.2 and 6.0 with my eyes shut! I would be pleased to handle the additional responsibilities of stenography, answering telephones, training others in word processing, etc. Plus, I am bilingual (English/Chinese), which may strengthen the service you provide to Asian customers.

Sincerely, Gwendolyn Ellys (555) 456-7890 Ms. Lucille Lockhart Vice President, Human Resources CompuTech Industries 47 Pratt Street Hartford, CT 09876 RE: Your ad in the Hartford Courant, Sunday, May 8, 199X for an Assistant to the President Dear Ms. Lockhart: Impeccable interpersonal skills. Organizational and supervisory abilities. Attention to detail. Your ad describes my strengths precisely! People Power: As a teacher in the public school system for three years, I am adept at dealing with people -- from "by the book" career administrators to the high school bully, from irate parents to the shy underachiever, from goal-oriented department heads to aggressive textbook sales representatives. Management Skills: As a homemaker raising two children, I mastered the ability to spearhead three projects simultaneously while supervising two distinct groups of youngsters, maintaining my patience and my good temper all the while. Accuracy: As a volunteer for a local hospital, I coordinated the ever-changing schedules of 50 unpaid workers for 5 years with nary a "foul-up." Handling these responsibilities provided me with a different kind of experience: the kind the corporate world just doesn't offer -- and the kind that proves invaluable once you enter this world, as I'd like to do now. I hope you'll consider me a serious candidate for the position of Assistant to the President. I certainly would take the job very seriously, proving an asset to the President and to the company. Sincerely, Frances Dougherty Home Phone: (555) 765-4321 Ms. Regina Connors Santa Fe Regional Educational Program 54 Desert View Drive Santa Fe, NM 12345 Dear Ms. Connors: With great excitement, I am responding to your ad for a Kindergarten Teacher. The opportunity to teach in the school system that fostered my interest in education is a thrilling one. Because I have recently switched from the business world to teaching, my resume may not provide the information you require (it is enclosed, nonetheless). Instead, allow me to excerpt from a recommendation provided by my advisor, Lynn Karyli: "Lauren never seems to choose the easy way; she takes the most demanding courses, opts to work in the most challenging teaching situations, attempts the most innovative and difficult teaching approaches and volunteers time and energy to extracurricular activities. And, in all her endeavors, she is successful ... "... It should be noted, that in the short period of a year and half, Lauren won the praise and admiration of her professors and her peers. She was selected as research assistant for a project on children's response to the arts. She is a highly respected member of her peer group, valued both for her leadership capabilities and for her constructive feedback and support of the efforts of others ... "... Thus, Lauren is a model for all who are associated with her and to all she brings enthusiasm and energy, sensitivity, thoughtfulness, and thoroughness and above all, a love of children and of life." This recommendation (in its entirety) is also enclosed. I am anxious to pursue this opportunity and to meet you in person. I will take the liberty of calling you to schedule an appointment. Sincerely, Lauren Quay (555) 765-4321 Dr. Lawrence Ahearn Milford School System 18 Central Avenue Milford, NY 09876 Dear Dr. Ahearn: As a father with three children in the Milford school system, I hope that each of my children receives not only a sound education, but that she acquires a perspective of life outside the school walls. With my business background and teaching credentials, I am equipped to offer both to the Milford students. After 20 years in corporate business training, I am now shifting my focus to educating within the school system. This year, I completed my education credits, fulfilled my student teaching requirements at Milford Middle School, and passed my certification examinations. Having just received word from Albany that my Certificate of Qualifications has been issued, I thought this would be the ideal time to write to you. Dr. Ahearn, my diverse background offers Milford students a unique opportunity to discover how their studies have practical application in what they call "the real world." I would welcome the chance to discuss any openings that may arise under your aegis. I will contact you soon to see whether we might meet. Or you may reach me at (555) 765-4321. Most sincerely, Andrew L. Moses Director Radio, TV and Film Department State University P.O. Box 1111 University City, MD 09876 To the Department Director: In your search for someone to coordinate your Student Film Projects, I present you with the ideal candidate: myself. My resume, which is enclosed, details my 7 years of experience handling precisely the responsibilities this position entails. I am adept at managing the complexities of scheduling time, staff resources, and equipment -- relieving you of these burdensome tasks. I invariably maintain the utmost diplomacy when dealing with each of hundreds of young, creative students on a deadline -- saving you needless turmoil. If you will contact me at (555) 456-7890 day or night, I will be pleased to visit your campus whenever your schedule permits. I look forward to meeting you. Sincerely, William A. Galvan

Example Cover Letters 5Ms. Diane Sweet ArbiTech Systems, Inc. RE: 5/15/9X City Times 1444 Soneigh Way ad for Word Processors Damon, PA 09876 Dear Ms. Sweet: While it may seem odd for a Philosophy professor to be responding to your ad for Word Processors, today's economy has rendered many of yesterday's tenets entirely revocable. I am highly skilled in WordPerfect for Windows, as your ad requested. Six years of intense analysis and serious writing account for my indisputable command of this invaluable computer program. In addition, I offer your firm the maturity to deal effectively with clients, executives, and co-workers, particularly those under pressure. My written and verbal communication skills are advanced, which may prove extremely useful to your staff in the preparation of customer materials, reports, and presentations. Let me assure you that I do not consider this position a stop-gap by any means. After working in academia for nearly 17 years, the opportunity to join a fast paced leader in the business world is a stimulating one. I hope you will contact me so that we might meet. Sincerely, Christopher J. Rinaldi (555) 456-7890 home Mr. Oliver Orrington Orrington Engineering RE: 1/2/9X City Times 52 Eberhart Avenue ad: Word Processing Traverse City, MI 09876 Format Specialist Dear Mr. Orrington: I am an accomplished Word Processing Format Specialist with considerable experience in desktop publishing.

I am fluent in the following: WordPerfect WordPerfect for Windows Excel Lotus 1-2-3 AmiPro I can operate in both MAC and IBM environments.

Part-time or full-time, I will be a dedicated employee. Please give me a call at (555) 456-7890 and we can start producing eye-popping reports and presentations. Thank you. Rudolf P. Osborn G. R. Rodriguez Vice President RE: Your ad for a P.O. Box 1111 System Technician City Times City Times, 1/13/9X Brewster, NH 09876 To Vice President Rodriguez: As a systems technician for PageNet, one of the country's leading paging services companies, I have earned superior performance reviews for each of the last 3 years. Now I would like to bring this reputation to a growing firm, such as yours, that can benefit from my knowledge and experience. In return for the opportunity to expand my territory and compensation, I offer expertise in installing and maintaining transmitters and paging terminal equipment developed through 3 years of solid field experience, the ability to adhere to a full service schedule without supervision as well as a positive, pleasant manner in my dealings with both personal and business customers. Naturally, I hold FCC certification and a valid driver's license. Hiring someone with my experience will certainly save your company the cost of training a less experienced technician. If you will page me at (555) 456-7890 and leave your number, I will call at once to set up an appointment. Sincerely, Bethany I. Allen Resume enclosed Mr. Miguel Buitta Senior Executive Vice President TechnoSphere Technologies 1800 Coronet Circle Reston, VA 09876 Dear Mr. Buitta: Given the advanced technology with which you and I deal on a daily basis, I rarely have a business conversation these days that doesn't require translation. Speaking with you on the phone earlier today was a pleasure! As promised, I have enclosed my resume, which details my 17-year tenure with ICM. To preview the information on my resume, I will call your attention to an achievement of particular interest to TechnoSphere -- one that also doubles as the highlight of my career: Emerging technologies such as (GPS) Global Positioning System and character recognition techniques were the focus of my study in an effort to reduce the skyrocketing cost of data conversion. Not only did my efforts lower conversion costs across the board, but this technology became vital to U.S. efforts in the Gulf War. GPS satellite signals allowed our troops to navigate accurately around the featureless desert environment. My knowledge of, and experience with, an extensive array of computer technology and highly sophisticated applications enable me to conceive and spearhead a comprehensive range of innovative projects for TechnoSphere. Such projects will undoubtedly produce results that have far-reaching implications within the industry, science and health, the U.S. business community, and the international scene. It would be a genuine opportunity to apply my unusual capabilities to help TechnoSphere seize significant, not to mention lucrative, contracts that will add to the organization's overall reputation and presence. Thank you for your interest and willingness to meet with me. I will call shortly to schedule an appointment. Sincerely, Raj Jaarynharoon (555) 456-7890 Mr. Bart Holmes Human Resource Director RE: MIS Manager position 555-456-7890 fax advertised 4/5/9X City Times Dear Mr. Holmes: As an experienced and successful MIS Manager, I offer you all of the qualifications listed in your advertisement -- and then some. I am, therefore, faxing you my resume with this letter. As my resume illustrates, I possess the track record, technical knowledge, and expertise to effectively: -- Design, develop, implement, and support all MIS functions. -- Evaluate, recommend, and purchase hardware, software, and supplies. -- Manage, develop, and support multiplatform environments. -- Demonstrate proficiency with Appletalk, Novell, and Windows. My work at a leading architectural design firm expanded my abilities to apply the best that today's computer technology has to offer from a more creative point of view than many other MIS Managers may possess. As a result, I have an unusual talent for turning challenges into solutions that can yield profitable results. The benefit of working for a smaller firm is that I had the opportunity to handle a range of responsibilities. The downside is that my salary history may not be in line with industry standards. I would be pleased to provide you with more information on this when we have the chance to meet. If you will contact me at (555) 765-4321, I will be pleased to set up an appointment. Sincerely, Michael Manning (555) 765-4321 Ms. Althea Wilcox Director, Personnel RE: Your ad for a Broadham Technical Systems, Inc. Network Administrator, Elizabeth, NJ 09876 City Times, 11/20/9X Dear Ms. Wilcox: Your advertisement addresses my qualifications so ideally, one would think we'd met. And we should -- because I can offer you the precise skills for which you're searching. You seek the ability to: Do I possess? Train and support local and remote area network users. YES Plan and support Windows NT-based local area network. YES Manage security, capacity planning, database support for SQL Server database and maintain LAN/nationwide office links. YES Deal effectively with Windows and provide SQL Server database support. YES and YES I hope you'll agree that your needs and my capabilities are a perfect match because it would be a thrill to join a firm with the technological talent yours employs. In fact, I am not currently in the job market, but am responding only to your ad. Therefore, I would appreciate maintaining confidentiality. Please contact me at home at (555) 456-7890 evenings or weekends, or by mail at the address printed above. I'd be pleased to set up a meeting whenever it's convenient for you. Sincerely, Lionel N. Ruminjan Mr. George Misal Vice President Digital Equipment Corporation 1234 Main Street Encino, CA 09876 Dear Mr. Misal: My immediate superior describes me as "a unique combination of left brain logic and right brain creativity." My engineering background drives my methodical approach to solving problems. My creativity produces the flexibility to assess and assemble numerous alternatives. I am responding to your ad for a Communications Specialist because my left brain logic has determined that my skills are ideally suited to fulfill the responsibilities of this position. My exceptional communication skills allow me to either distill complex technical information into customer requirements, or define customer requirements and then apply the appropriate technology. As a result, your firm will set a new standard in customer satisfaction. My experience with multiple vehicles for conveying information -- such as video tape, multimedia presentations, radio spots, and national TV programs -- will enable you to serve a broader client base more cost-effectively. I am a quick study and have educated myself on subjects from business financial models to Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR). Currently, I am responsible for aftermarket Personal Computer Multimedia products in both the commercial and retail markets. My right brain creativity would welcome the opportunity to meet in person and explore the opportunities my unique strengths will bring to Digital. I will call you shortly to schedule an appointment. Sincerely, Rick Abrams 555-456-7890 weekdays 555-765-5432 evenings AdvantaCom, Inc. 2108 State Line RE: Software/Hardware Kansas City, MO 09876 Senior Executive Dear Search Committee: It's not like riding a bicycle! Contributing to the planning, promoting, and day-to-day operations of an emerging technologies company like AdvantaCom is not the same as running a company in the fashion, financial, or fishing industries. After 7 years directing the operations of an East Coast competitor and more than 8 years managing software engineering ?I should know! Unlike any other industry, ours demands of its Senior Executives a level of technical sophistication that can only be the product of hands-on, in-depth, unfailing relevant experience . . . precisely what I offer AdvantaCom! I am exceptionally articulate in a diverse range of hardware and software, client/server technology, systems programming, and database management. I also possess the demonstrated ability to successfully apply the strategies and principles fundamental to building and growing a business in today's volatile economy. This background arms me to lead AdvantaCom in generating results as impressive as those I helped my current organization achieve: -Margins surpassing industry averages by 23%. -Operations productivity 45% over previous levels. -Domestic market share growth exceeding 30%. -Hardware products introduced to previously untapped (by us) global marketplaces, delivering $12 million in sales in first year alone along with a 97% customer satisfaction rating. My expertise in technology and management are at your disposal, as is my proven track record. It would be an honor to join an organization with your reputation and promise. You may reach me at (555) 456-7890 during business hours and at (555) 765-4321 at home. Sincerely, Hugh J. McNeil Ms. Sylvia McCormack President McCormack Recruiting Co. 5 Liberty Circle Sacramento, CA 09876 Dear Ms. McCormack: In today's difficult economy, you undoubtedly receive hundreds of resumes from people seeking employment. However, you have built a career on the ability to recognize marketable talents, which I possess -- in-depth experience, focused expertise, flexibility, adaptability, commitment, and a highly effective management style. My current employer's economic health makes it advisable for me to seek a new situation as soon as possible. I am therefore taking the liberty of forwarding my resume for your review. My specific niche is the design and implementation of new technology for electrical subsystems, but I can contribute effectively within a variety of engineering environments. My background, professional experience, and work style equip me to offer a rare overview of the field along with a profound grasp of project details. This mix is unusual among professionals in my field, and it is essential to the employer actively seeking innovative solutions in emerging technologies. I look to your expertise for assistance in my search and will call you early next week to see whether we can schedule a meeting. I thank you in advance for your consideration. Sincerely, Todd Wychowsky (555) 455-7890 home (555) 765-4321 work Ms. Melinda Ovett President Ovett Electronics 970 East Park Avenue Merritt, WI 09876 Dear Ms. Ovett: Because I have long admired your achievement in building a successful company, I was dismayed to learn of your recent layoffs. In today's economy, such a situation presents the vexing conundrum: how to maximize opportunities for growth with diminished human resources? Optimizing the resources you can employ is, of course, a viable solution -- one I can offer if you would grant me the chance to meet with you. When we meet, you'll find me to be a person with a positive outlook who enjoys identifiying ways to make something work rather than reasons not to try. This perspective is invaluable in setting an example for employees who are called upon to assume numerous responsibilities -- of particular merit in this era of unavoidable downsizing and cost cutting. In addition, my resume (which is enclosed) demonstrates that I possess the background and experience our industry demands, and your success deserves. Ms. Ovett, if I have taken great liberty in writing to you, it is because I firmly believe that I can contribute to your firm's continued expansion. I will call you early next week to see whether we might get together. Sincerely, Stan Harding (555) 765-4321 Ms. Althea Adams Anytime, Anywhere Productions 1234 Bleeker Street New York, NY 09876 Dear Ms. Adams: With the plethora of producers currently looking for employment, you are certainly hiring in a buyer's market. Before sifting through hundreds of resumes, however, I urge you to spend a moment that may save you hours of needless interviewing. Who will add the proper mix of creativity, professionalism, and award-winning talent to your staff? The answer may be in your hands right now. As a writer and producer, I have created feature films as well as historical epics, children's educational programs, and contemporary television serials -- as listed on the enclosed resume -- both here and abroad. The broad scope of projects with which I have been involved demonstrates my range and ability to function in any milieu. The fact that several of my pieces were awarded presitigious honors illustrates the quality of my work. Rest assured, however, that each of these films was completed at or under budget and on time. A personal discussion will convince you that there is no need to spend hours interviewing other candidates. I will call you shortly. Sincerely, Alan Hoopes (555) 765-4321 Telephone Ms. Leonore Valerio Lincoln Center Institute RE: Your ad for a New York, NY 09876 Teaching Artist, Community Times, 4/10/9X Dear Ms. Valerio: What a delight it is to discover a school that recognizes the value of promoting dance among its students and actually allocates funding for this vital intention! In applying for the teaching position at LCI, I offer you a rare mix of talents and experience, as described in detail on the enclosed resume. My comprehensive training in the United States and abroad is complemented by my experience as a member in such diverse companies as the Belgrade National Theatre, the Ballet Hispanico of New York, and the Julliard Dance Ensemble. Both have equipped me to introduce a far broader range of methods, techniques, styles, music, and interpretation than many others in the field. Throughout more than 20 years in dance and dance education, I have experienced my own joy as well as that of students of both sexes and every age as they acquire much needed self-confidence by expressing themselves through movement. The opportunity to continue such a worthwhile endeavor at the Lincoln Center Institute would be as thrilling as it would be rewarding. I will contact you within the next several days to further explore this exciting possibility. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Isadora Ilianya (555) 456-7890 Director, Human Resources P.O. Box 1111 City Times Brigham City, AK 09876 To the Director of Human Resources: Four years in college and what have I learned? Plenty! Plenty that I can apply directly to the entry level position you advertised in this Sunday's City Times. The drive to focus and achieve: Your firm's success depends upon the ability of your staff to grasp a problem, evaluate the best way to solve it, and then work until the solution is in hand. This is precisely the process I followed all four years to graduate with a 3.80 average. Flexibility and creativity: A business gets stale when it continually recycles the same ideas time and time again. When you hire me, you get someone who thinks for himself, and who is not afraid to suggest new ways to approach a task as I did as the Student Representative responsible for researching and updating State University's Ethics Standards to reflect the difficult issues facing today's students and faculty. The ability to work with a diverse population: Having been raised in an ethnic environment, educated in a multicultural institution, and with a degree in Psychology, I am well equipped to interact productively with customers and staff from a variety of backgrounds, with a range of priorities, and from the stockroom to senior management. An interview would grant me the opportunity to demonstrate my abilities. I will call you soon to see if we might meet. Or you can reach me at the number listed below. Thank you in advance for considering me. Sincerely, R. Alexander Conen (555) 456-7890 Superintendent of Schools The Provincetown School Committee High School Annex Charles Street Provincetown, MA 09876 Dear Sir or Madam: I am a teacher of English at the Forsyth Satellite Academy in New York City. In May, I will complete the Master's Program in English Education at New York University, where I have the honor of having been selected as the Graduate Valedictory Speaker. This summer, I will receive 6 postgraduate credits as a participant in the New York City Writing Project at The City University of New York. Before entering the field of Education, I enjoyed 8 years in accounting -- a field I left voluntarily in January 199X to pursue a long felt desire to teach, motivate, and guide students in their use of the language and appreciation of literature. I am thrilled with my decision to switch careers! With these unique strengths, I write because I am moving to Cape Cod in August and I seek a position as a teacher of English in the Provincetown School District. I recognize that there may be a shortage of openings. While my primary goal is to secure a full-time position teaching English, I would like to offer my services in any capacity for which you might find my background suitable. I will gladly work on a part-time basis or as a substitute. I enclose a resume of my business and educational experience along with my most recent evaluation, made by my practicum supervisor. I would welcome the privilege of meeting with you to discuss any appropriate position that you may have in your district. I can come to see you on very short notice should you be willing to meet with me; you can reach me at (555) 234-3456. Thank you for your interest. Warm regards, George Andrew Hillman Ms. Chris Harper New York Foundling Hospital Two Sixth Avenue RE: Child Care Worker New York, NY 09876 Seton Day Care Center Dear Ms. Harper: Seton Day Care, its children, and their parents deserve the very best Child Care Worker you can find. May I offer myself as a candidate who can meet this tough standard? My experience working with children is as extensive as it is diverse. As a mother of two, I have performed the multiple and continual duties that every newborn requires. As a volunteer in both the nursery school and first grade classroom environments, I have dealt effectively with children at an age when your every breath and action contributes to the shaping of their personalities, demeanor, and morals. I have also cared for older children in my home, both for pay and as a courtesy to other mothers, so I am well aware of the challenges and rewards of this vital responsibility. Supporting my practical experience is a thorough educational background and hands-on work in the field. In earning my degree in Family and Consumer Studies, my relevant studies included courses in Child Psychology, Child Development, Sociology of the Family, and Family Relationships. In addition, I completed field work in a day-care facility in the Bronx. Personally, I offer you the following strengths: I possess a calm attitude and superb understanding of children's needs. Many people are surprised by how comfortable their children feel with me. As a mother, I empathize with other parents and find it easy to build a productive rapport. Although I am in the process of updating my resume, I am extremely interested in pursuing this opportunity and I did not want to delay contacting you. At your convenience, I would like to meet with you to explore the opportunity of working together. If you will contact me at (555) 456-7890 (day or evening), we can schedule a meeting, at which I will present you with my completed resume. Thank you in advance for your consideration Sincerely, Felicity Adnagi (555) 456-7890 Dr. Lucille Klingman 8 Hawthorne Avenue Milltown, WY 09876 Dear Dr. Klingman: After 12 years as a Dental Hygienist, I know all there is to know about routine oral hygiene, orthodontic hygiene, and pediatric hygiene. However, my experience extends further than this ?and further than most other hygienists. I have performed in a frenetically busy multi-practitioner environment and a teaching facility, as well. As a result, I am expertly capable of managing the demands of overworked dentists, nervous adults, and hyperactive children. I can instantly develop a comforting rapport with patients of any age. Now, I would like to apply my expertise to the needs of a small, local practice. From the sound of your advertisement in the City Times this past Sunday, my skills would be a perfect match for your setting. If you will contact me at my home number, I will be in touch to set up a meeting at your convenience. I would greatly appreciate your professional courtesy in refraining from contacting my present employer. Sincerely, Howard MacKenzie Home telephone: (555) 456-7890 Mr. Albert Girannelli P.O. Box 1111 City Times Clayton, MO 09876 Dear Mr. Girannelli: Your ad for a Social Worker caught my attention since I would like to rejoin the profession after several years as a homemaker and mother. With my education, experience, and commitment to human services, I possess all the qualifications you seek. I have a BS in Learning Disabilities, MSW degree, and state licensure. For 5 years, I worked at a facility providing subacute care and rehabilitation services to children and their families with a variety of special health needs, receiving regular praise from my superiors for my clinical and interpersonal skills. More recently, I performed over 10,000 hours of volunteer work with substance abusers while raising three children. Through my efforts over the years, I have remained abreast of new issues and ideas in human services. I would be surprised if you were able to find a more dedicated employee than I will be, or one more ready to contribute once again by performing first-class assessments, treatments, consultation, and training. Enclosed you will find my resume, a copy of my state license, and references. If there is anything else I can provide, please let me know. I am anxious to meet with you as soon as possible. Sincerely, Suzanne Collins (555) 765-4321 Ms. Miranda S. Lewin Director of Staff The Trent-Bridges Academy 1233 Academy Road Stamford, CT 09876 Dear Ms. Lewin: If your Speech Pathology Department has room for a skilled, enthusiastic, and committed Speech Therapist, I hope you will consider me. This June, I will receive my BS from State University's School of Speech. I have already begun supplementing my formal training in Speech and Language Pathology with several practicums and internships, all of which inspire me to continue contributing to this valuable profession while preparing for my Masters and Certification. Through my work with stroke patients, stutterers, and those with cleft palate and articulation disorders, I have acquired hands-on experience that may enhance the success and reputation your department already enjoys. My grades and evaluations have been consistently superior, validating my skill as well as my ability to work harmoniously with co-workers. Of greatest value to you, however, is my commitment to each and every patient with whom I work. My objective is to improve their lives by improving their ability to communicate and their self-esteem. If these are the qualities you seek, I hope you will contact me. I will be happy to visit your office for an interview, at your convenience. Sincerely, Luna Moss 555-456-7890 Telephone Dr. Phoebe Williamson The Sacred Heart Academy 40 Lakeview Drive RE: Your City Times ad Galveston, TX 09876 for a Registered Nurse Dear Dr. Williamson: Given the reputation for excellence that you maintain at The Sacred Heart Academy, you hold equally rigorous standards in your search for a Registered Nurse to care for your students and faculty. Excellence is exactly what I can deliver, along with an unusually strong background in health care. My resume, which is enclosed, details the depth of my experience with newborns, grade-level children, adolescents, and young adults of college age. As you'll see, I have worked as a Student Health Nurse, Camp Nurse, Family Camp Coordinator, hospital Staff Nurse in labor and delivery, and Nursing Care Coordinator. These assignments, along with my work as a Nurse Coordinator for a Perinatal HIV Transmission Study, honed my ability to deal with children and their parents with understanding, warmth, and humor. During the past several years, I reduced my workload outside the home while raising two sons. I am now ready and eager to return to Nursing, and to continue combining exceptional medical care with compassionate patient care. The opportunity to pursue these objectives as a member of Sacred Heart's highly respected staff is an important one. I do hope that you'll allow me to present my qualifications to you in person. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Kerry A.

I can help your organization avoid this problem. I have been in my current position for 9 years, and am only seeking alternate employment because our owner has decided to retire and close the facility. Not only do I have the experience to bring to your club, I also built a loyal base of "one-on-ones," many of whom are likely to follow me within reasonable geographic limits. I am well-versed in a complete range of equipment, such as Aerobic (Stairmaster, treadmills, running machines, cross-country skiing, bicycles, Lifecycle and VersaClimber), Free weights, Universal, Eagle, and Nautilus. I have designed personal fitness programs for clients from ages 18 to 80, even working successfully with individuals required by their doctors to lose 100 pounds or more. My skill, rapport, and results have led many of my existing clients to introduce me to their friends, whom I have taken on as new clients. If you're looking to add long lasting muscle to your training program, please contact me at (555) 456-7890 and we can schedule a time to get together. Sincerely, Bill Zeman
