Dear Mr./Mrs.__________________(or, company name/to Whom it May Concern),
I was excited to see the job listing on (name job board) for the Assistant Manager position at Marsh Enterprises Advertising. I'd like to introduce myself as a candidate for the position and I look forward to learning more about your company's needs.
I have the blend of experience, skills and attitude to become an integral part of the team at Marsh Enterprises Advertising. My previous positions have included management roles as well as creative roles. Over the past 5 years, I have developed strong skills in print design, web design as well as managing a team of 6 for several successful television ad campaigns. Additionally, I have honed my skills in managing a remote team in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment. Throughout my roles, I have always maintained a team-oriented attitude.
Most recently, my role as an Assistant Manager at Delonzi Advertising has allowed me to build my skills in managing multimedia projects and social media for a top-performing firm. That role also required advanced skills in Microsoft Office and Photoshop. Beyond my work experience, my education also contributes to my candidacy for your open position. I hold a B.A. in writing and an M.A. in business. I believe I possess the right blend of experience, education and personality to bring even more success to Marsh Enterprises.
I would be happy to provide a portfolio featuring some of my previous projects, and references who can attest to my skills in previous positions. I would welcome the opportunity to interview with you at your convenience. Thank you kindly for your time.
