Dear Ms. Rosie Thompson,
I am applying for the position of Casting Assistant available at Shw Casting Technologies.
I have the ability to assist the casting director in his/her search for talent. I have the skills to perform clerical duties such as answering phones, setting up appointments, responding to mail and negotiating contracts. I have the ability to read and comprehend the scripts and to help find talent that will portray the characters the best.
I am an excellent judge of character and I have the ability to recognize natural talent when it comes along. I have the skills to sort through the resumes to choose the best applicants for the parts and then to set up auditions to meet the applicants in person to narrow down the options even more.
Once down to three or four good performers, I can set up auditions for the casting director to meet and choose the best actor/actress for the part. I have the skills and ability to monitor and coordinate the auditions to ensure they go smoothly. This includes everything from making sure all performers are notified and present to telling them when to step out on stage.
I have the ability to pay close attention to detail, follow directions and to handle several projects simultaneously. I have a flexible schedule that allows me to work evenings and weekends to get the job done. I am highly motivated, dependable and very excited about the possibility of working for your company.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555 and I am looking forward to meeting with you soon.
