Dear Mr. Smith,
I was thrilled to find your firm’s advertisement in the Vail Sunday Times, January 12, 2008, for a Senior Winter Events Consultant. My broad management experience in events planning, coupled with my enthusiasm for working in the skiing industry, clearly matches your stated requirements for the ideal candidate to fill this position.
Most of my professional adult life has been occupied with sports, sports marketing, public relations, successful promotional endeavors, and executing all operations within a high-end catering business in Newport, Rhode Island. My athletic achievements and participation in numerous activities in college point to my early accomplishments in building a solid foundation for the intensive responsibilities of planning and successfully executing such events as AAA regularly engages in.
In addition, my experiences as advertising account executive for North American Skiing Companies, director of retail marketing for a radio station, and director of public relations for a baseball team have strengthened my abilities to meet any challenges that may lie ahead in my focused ambition to go further in this growing field of sports events planning.
I would appreciate meeting with you to discuss my candidacy for the position as Senior Winter Events Consultant with AAA Giant Events, Inc. I will call your office to request a meeting date convenient to you.
Thank you for considering my application. I eagerly look forward to our meeting and the opportunity to discuss my credentials and career aspirations for this position.
