Dear Ms. Martinez,

I am applying for the open position of Literary Agent with Thomas Publishing Company LLC and I have included my resume with complete details of my experience and skills.

For the last two years, I worked as an editor for a major publishing company where I gained lots of experience in this field. For this reason, I am qualified to read and edit your manuscripts and to provide you with professional service. I can also offer constructive advice that can help improve certain areas of your work to make it more appealing without taking away from the storyline or making major changes in your script.

I am a great negotiator, so I can act as a medium between you and the publishers to get you the very best deal for your manuscripts. If the publishers request major changes before accepting your script, I can relay this message along with their reason for asking for the changes. This way, you can understand why there is a problem and work to correct it.

I have exceptional computer skills with the knowledge to help build up your contact lists and I can represent you at all types of social and business functions.

I understand all of the duties and responsibilities associated with being a Literary Agent and I am sure that I can meet all of your expectations. I am the best person for this job and I look forward to meeting with you in person.

Please call (333)-200-3115 to arrange a meeting to discuss the job in more detail.

Respectfully,

Donald Urbanski
