Dear Ms. Ortiz:

I am interested in your Assistant Director of Development position that I saw on the CareerBuilder website. I have always been a fan of public television, and the opportunity of raising money for such a worthwhile organization is very exciting to me. I am a devoted viewer of such programs as “Great Performances,” “Nova,” and “Live at Lincoln Center.” I am excited at the thought of being able to bring this type of programming to your community.

As you will note in the enclosed resume, I will be graduating from Miami University next month with a major in Marketing with a minor in Speech Communication. I feel confident that my speaking ability will allow me to make the kinds of presentations the job undoubtedly requires, and that my marketing and writing skills will enable me to continue the effective letter-writing and social media campaigns that you have so successfully initiated. In addition, the communication and leadership skills I gained through my part-time and summer work while conducting tours and facilitating customer relations at the Cincinnati History Museum will contribute to my ability to be successful in this position. Please see my resume for more information about my qualifications and accomplishments.

I believe I possess the kinds of skills and abilities you are looking for in an Assistant Director of Development, and I hope to have the opportunity to meet with you to discuss this position further. Thank you for your consideration.



Shereatha Bradford
