Dear Ms. Cummings:
A few years ago, I was your son Dan's classmate at the University of Miami. When I bumped into him last week in Billings, Montana, of all places, he informed me that you deal closely with several leading specialists in the telecommunications field and suggested I contact you immediately. At present, I am interested in joining a company where I can contribute strong skills and an education in communications.
My qualifications, all detailed on the enclosed resume, are as follows:
A Bachelor of Arts in Communications that included courses, projects, and case studies addressing marketing, public relations, web-design, and advertising issues.
Experience with all planning and implementation areas of marketing, public relations, advertising, and sales.
Experience as an assistant account executive for a major advertising agency, whose clients include telecommunication firms, and as promotions intern at a radio station.
Bilingual German-English skills and experience living and studying in Europe.
I would greatly appreciate any advice or referrals you might be able to provide. A listing of firms and contact names would be wonderful, and I would of course cite your referral in any communications with these individuals. I will call you in a few days to follow up. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
