ABC Worldwide Food Company

Meguro-ku, Tokyo 152-0000

Dear Mr. Smith,

I am contacting you today to express my interest in the Marketing Manager position posted on the CareerCross website. After reviewing my enclosed resume, I hope you will consider my qualifications as a match to your needs.

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. Due to my skills and experiences, I am confident my skillset would serve to create profitable results for ABC Worldwide.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I am excited about the idea of working for Japan’s national leader in imported food, and look forward to hearing from you to arrange a meeting.
