Mr. David Smith
Human Resource Manager
ABC Worldwide Food Company
Meguro-ku, Tokyo 152-0000a
Dear Mr. Smith:
Your advertisement for an experienced Marketing Manager, posted on the CareerCross website, caught my attention. After reviewing my enclosed resume, I hope you will agree that my qualifications match your needs, and consider me for the position.
Working as a Marketing Assistant for XYZ Food Supply Company in London for three years, I was able to develop a strong understanding of the demands and needs of consumers. Last September, I was promoted to Team Leader at XYZ because of my talents for organizing and supervising. I successfully improved the team productivity by raising the frequency of internal communications, and introduced a new system to measure the effectiveness of XYZ’s advertising.
Through my practical experience and my Master’s Degree in Marketing Management at Nottingham University, I feel fully prepared to meet the demands of your fast-paced marketing division. According to your advertisement, the position requires someone who is very dynamic, energetic, outgoing, flexible and responsible, and works well both independently or as a part of team. I have these skills, and am confident that together with my experience, and linked with the vision of your company, they will serve to create profitable results for ABC Worldwide.
Thank you for taking the time to review my credentials. I am excited about the idea of working for Japan’s national leader in imported food, and look forward to hearing from you shortly to arrange a meeting. I may be reached by phone at 048-829-123x or by Email at email@example.com.
