Dear Mr. levy:
Is there a place at First Security for a person with a thorough business education, experience in the business world, and an earnest desire to accept responsibility and handle challenges? If so, I believe that I can meet your need.
On December 20, 1988, I received a BBA degree from Brigham Young University besides courses in accounting, management, and marketing. I have taken speech, industrial psychology, and business communications to better prepare myself to work effectively with people.
As an employee at Sears, Roebuck in Provo, Utah, I have performed various duties from receiving clerk to cashier to candidate for management trainee. I believe that my supervisor there (see the enclosed resume) will tell you that I was a dependable, conscientious worker. My parttime work of approximately 25 hours a week enabled me to pay the major part of my college expenses.
In addition to education and experience, Mr. Levy, my college activities have prepared me to work well with people. As senior vice president in charge of recruiting for my professional fraternity, I organized a number of educational and social meetings for prospective members. During the time I served as chairman of recruiting, we pledged more men and women than we had for the previous three years.Besides the qualifications mentioned, I would bring to your bank a desire to succeed and a willingness to work hard. Please look over the enclosed resume, which provides more details about my background. If you think I could serve First Security in an entrylevel position, please call me. I will arrange to come in for an interview at your convenience.
Yours very truly,

Dear Ms. Hendrady:
I would like to be considered for the post of sales representative with your corporation, as advertised in the May 28 edition of the China Daily.
I had successfully completed the courses directly related to marketing four years ago. In these courses, I had acquired skills in marketing, management relations and communication. This background enables me to work effectively with employees, customers and the general public.
As a graduate from the Foreign Trade University, I feel very confident that I can meet your special requirements that the candidate must have a high command of English, for I had got an excellent score in TOEFL. Furthermore, I learned to communicate well with English speaking customers when I worked as a salesman with the Great Wall Corporation Limited.
The main reason for changing my employment is to gain more experience with a company of outstanding international reputation such as yours. I believe that my education and experience will prove useful for work in your office.Enclosed are my resume and three photos. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss my qualification with you. Would you please write to let me know a convenient time for you to talk with me?

Dear Ms. Sunners，
It was a pleasure speaking with you regarding employment opportunities at the University of Omaha. As was discussed, I am interested in providing Orientation and Mobility (O&M) or liaison services to students with disabilities. Please consider my qualification if a suitable opening becomes available. I have enclosed several copies of my resume. Please feel free to give them to colleagues who may be interested.
Throughout my professional career, I have learned that the availability of Orientation and Mobility services can mean the difference between success or failure for students with disabilities. It often determines whether a sudent travels safely to and from school or work. I have dedicated my career to giving students the opportunity for success through Orientation and Mobility and Gross Motor training. Consider the following:
1.20 years of progressive experience in the field of Orientation and Mobility.
2. Published writer and speaker on Orientation and Mobility topics.
3. Lifelong commitment to helping individuals with physical challenges and multiple disabilities.
4. Rapid and thorough assessment of Orientation and Mobility needs and development of plans to help students achieve their goals.
At this point in my career, I am exploring new professional challenges at college campuses. I am eager to relocate for the right opportunity. Since the University of Omaha has approximately 500 registered students with disabilities, I am confident that my professional services would be beneficial to the students.
If you are interested in a resultsoriented and dedicated professional with strong credentials, please call me at (555) 555-5555. I am available for a telephone interview or an inperson meeting at your convenience. Thanks again for your time and assistance.

Dear Ms. Brown,
Finance, Inc. was listed on Cleveland Universitys career webpage for summer internships. I believe that Finance, Incs summer internship is an ideal opportunity for students.
As a junior at Cleveland University, I am learning about the technical side of accounting through a rigorous accounting course load. In addition, I am learning to be a team player and to communicate effectively with people from diverse backgrounds. For example, in my marketing class, I did a group presentation on Starbucks. We had one week to evaluate Starbucks financial position, future opportunities, and recommend a strategy for Starbucks to compete well against Caribou Coffee. Working with group members that have conflicting opinions was quite challenging, exciting, and ultimately rewarding for me. Likewise, projects that I have completed at Creative Solutions Inc., and the Cleveland Municipal Water District further enhanced my accounting skills as well as offered insights into different aspects of the business world. My responsibilities included bookkeeping for thousands of dollars. At Finance, Inc., I would also like to make a contribution by using my outstanding analytical skills and be challenged to work to my potential by working with diverse clientele. In addition, I look forward to understanding more about Finance, Incs role in business.
I respect Finance, Inc's excellence in quality and support and believe that I can meet these standards as a summer intern. I want to be challenged and learn firsthand about business. I am looking forward to further discussing the challenges and rewards of working for Finance, Inc.
Thank you for your consideration.
