Cover Letter For A Career Change

Posted in Cover Letters

Dear Hiring Manager:

This letter is to express my interest in your open Marketing position as advertised on your website. The opportunity presented in this advertisement is akin to the experience I have found in my career, though I have worked in a different industry. My background has been in Finance and Business Administration and began with my Masters degree in the same. In these courses, I was able to learn all the necessary concepts of business, finance, and the marketing that necessarily deals with these two areas of industry.

I have over ten years experience in these disciplines in both roles of the team and also, as supervisor in Finance Investing firms as well as Business Administration roles which included marketing and business development in my position. I was able to bring a new level of profit involvement and planning to the companies I worked for-through my avid marketing involvement.

For the role of Marketing professional, I bring these key transferable skills:

Self starter
Team player
Excellent interpersonal skills
Savvy for marketing initiatives
Solid experience in business
Quick and enthusiastic learner

You will find beyond these characteristics that I am also confident, enthusiastic, hard working, and professional at all times. I know I have the experience and the passion for the job that your company requires and deserves. As you will see my resume offers a well developed experience in the areas that I mentioned, but now I seek to put the values of Finance and Business to my goals of working in a Marketing setting. I seek only the best venue for that-at Portland Port Marketing-a company with a solid track record, and one of the most prestigious in the area.

I hope that you’ll find my experience and objectives worthy of speaking with me further regarding a position at your company, as I know I would make a valuable addition to your company’s success. I can be reached at (555)-555-5555 at your convenience. Thanks so much for your time and consideration, and I look forward to speaking with you further.
