Dear Mr. Simpson

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

I would especially like to point out at this time that I graduated from the renowned Brown’s Public Relations College and I have a history of exemplary service in the field of Marketing and Advertising. I have had the very good fortune of working side-by-side with seasoned PR representatives, this past 5 years.

During my stay with DeClerc Advertising, I added 30 new clients to their already impressive roster and I was quickly promoted through the ranks all within my first year of work.

I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you and I shall call you within the next three days to arrange an interview that will be convenient for you.
