Dear Mr. Arnold,
I recently came upon your job posting for an Art Gallery Assistant for your prestigious art gallery. I am very knowledgeable about art, and offer you my resume for your consideration.
With a strong background in art and art history, I come to you today to apply for this position. I have a B.F.A in Art History, and have spent my life working on my own artistic drawings-and thus, am well acquainted with famous artists, works of art, art periods, and techniques. There isn’t another industry that inspires me more, and I would love the opportunity to start my career off on the right foot with your prestigious art gallery.
Is there a time that I can contact you to discuss this position further? I would love to stop in next week to meet you, and learn about your goals for this position. I can be reached at (555)-555-5555 and [email] at any time. I thank you so much for your time.
