Dear Mr. Colleti,

I am very interested in the Event Coordinator position posted in the April issue of the Los Angeles Insider. My resume is attached for your consideration. (Must specifically address the position desired as well as the website or publication of the job advertisement.)

During my senior year at UCLA, I was president of the Cultural Affairs Commission. The purpose of the commission was to plan a variety of events celebrating the different cultures among the students on campus. Holding such a position as president allowed me to develop my skill of multitasking as well as the ability to oversee that the other board members were performing their jobs well. I was able to practice effective communication and problem solving. This prepared me adequately for my position at Let’s Celebrate as a Public Relations Intern. Some of my responsibilities included coordinating new media campaigns, writing press releases that helped the public view the related client in a positive light, and maintaining a current calendar of events in the Los Angeles area. I was also exposed to budget management, contract negotiation, and other aspects that are highly correlated with event planning. (Describe past experience including your position, where you held that position, responsibilities it entailed, and what skills you gained. Be sure to relate any positions that are not specifically in Event Planning to Event Planning.)

My qualifications are aligned with the stated requirements of this position. My experience in public relations, along with my proven ability to handle highly stressful situations with ease, will cause operations to run smoothly. With an amiable personality and enthusiasm for this prospective position, I am positive that I will make a significant contribution to your company. (Expand on how you are qualified and what you can provide the company.)

I would like the opportunity to meet with you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (555) 555-5555 or by email at apatterson@letscelebrate.com. (Give contact information.)

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to scheduling an interview where I can talk more about my interests and qualifications. (Express gratitude for their time.)
