Dear Mr. Cal Spurring,
I am a senior at the University of Vermont interested in interviewing for a Marketing Associate at Success Marketing. I believe that Success Marketing has the ideal work environment and business values to which I could apply my entry level experience, strong Marketing and Business college education, and enthusiasm for the industry.
In my education experience, I have extensive coursework in Marketing and Business Administration; and offered me the ability to understand how very exciting the Marketing and Advertising industry can be. Moreover, I have worked in various part time positions-a Marketing internship for one-that have allowed me to grow and foster better communication, analytical, and financial skills-all of which support my value as an extremely qualified candidate for a Marketing Associate position with your company.
I am very enthusiastic about the opportunity of learning more about possible career growth opportunities you may have to offer me, and look forward to speaking with you further.
Sincerely,
Shawn Puffer
