SAMPLE COVER LETTER II
Ms. Pamela Cummings
Human Resources Specialist
2435 Dyer Street
Kokomo, IN 46254
Dear Ms. Cummings:
I recently met your colleague, Arthur Hyman, at a seminar sponsored by the Public
Relations Society of America. He mentioned that you were considering hiring two or
three entry level people for your Account Executive Training Program and suggested I
Ms. Cummings, it has been my dream to work at a major, full-service agency such as
yours. If at all possible, I had hoped to be accepted in a well respected, formal account
executive training program.
Your training program is the best in the industry. And while I certainly don’t expect to be
given the immediate opportunity to work on General Sodas or International
Conglomerate, two of your accounts I’m most familiar with, your extensive consumer
goods account list and expertise in this area leads me to believe ABC Company is the
right place for me.
And I’m the right person for you to hire. While majoring in journalism (with a marketing
emphasis) at University State, I worked on a number of projects, two of which simulated
PR problems you had to solve for Super Electric and the Bureau of Land Grabbing. In
addition, as an ad director for the Centennial and, this past summer, working as an
account services intern for a local agency, I clearly demonstrated my sales,
communication and interpersonal skills.
Ms. Cummings, I will be returning home to Indiana in one week and would like to meet
with you soon thereafter to discuss this opportunity in more detail. I will call you on May
14 to schedule an appointment. I look forward to talking with you then.
