Dear Jane West,

My name is Bob Smith and I am contacting you about the Marketing Position available at your Eastern location. I learned of this opportunity on Monster.com and would like to pursue my future marketing interests with Demars Financial Group due to its reputation as an innovative company.

My 4 years of experience in internet marketing and customer relations would make me a valuable asset to Demars Financial Group. Currently I am the Marketing Director for AIG Insurance Company and I am responsible for maintaining brand awareness through direct marketing efforts. I work with customers and advertisers on a daily basis, and this has strengthened my interpersonal and communication skills. I have also acquired a solid reputation as a proven leader through the success of my acquisition of the BCD Group.

My resume and writing samples are enclosed for your evaluation. If you would like to contact me I can be reached by phone at (555) 123-4567 or by email at bobsmith@yahoo.com. Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincerely,



(signature here)



Bob Smith
