Dear Mrs. Meltzer,
I am writing this cover letter with attached resume in response to your Advertising Sales Assistant position I saw advertised on www.monster.com this week. When I saw the ad, I knew it was the perfect position for me, as I am well qualified and possess all the characteristics you are seeking.
I graduated from Presbyterian College in 1996 with an advanced degree in Advertising, and am now looking for an environment of success to develop upon this knowledge of advertising concepts and strategic planning. During my last year of school, I also had the opportunity to intern for Zimmerman Advertising as an Advertising intern to learn more about hands on advertising work. I have since moved to your area, and have heard excellent things about the level of service and products you provide through my research; and I want to be a part of this success.
I know I can bring a new level of success to this exciting Advertising Sales Assistant, as I am a great communicator, enthusiastic, and a self starter. Pease find our more by contacting me at (555)-555-5555.
