Mr Peter Cassa
Cassa Public Relations
Dear Mr Cassa,
Application for PR Account Assistant position
Please accept my application for the PR Account Assistant position at Cassa Public Relations, as listed
on .au on 13 June 2015. I recently completed the Bachelor of Professional Communication at
Monash University with a distinction average across core subjects. I am seeking an opportunity to
commence my professional career in Public Relations and would greatly value the entry-level
experience to assist the Cassa Account Manager and Executive as described in the advertisement.
I am naturally out-going, friendly and a real communicator as evidenced by winning the Casey
Creations Youth Arts Drama Award during high school and by successfully gaining a voluntary position
to train students to work as volunteer university campus guides. I have proven strong customer service
skills acquired from two major retail organisations including winning a National Trainee of the Year
award as well as Staff Member of the Month award. My mature approach and ability to work
independently and report back is demonstrated through part time employment as an Assistant Manager
responsible for eight staff members at VideoEzy.
I have a demonstrated ability to implement public relations programs gained through practical
experience at Peninsula Health and voluntary work with the Deaf and Blind Association. This has
included writing approved media releases, liaison with local media outlets and developing an approved
public awareness campaign.
I also have well-developed written communications skills demonstrated through elected roles as high
school magazine sub-editor and university society secretary responsible for accurate and timely
minutes, agendas and reports. My digital media skills have been demonstrated through checking and
uploading to content management software the personal profile stories for the Department of Human
Services web site.
Thanks you for considering my application which includes the attached resume. I would welcome an
opportunity to further discuss my application further with you at interview.
