Dear Mr. Williams,
This cover letter is in response to your advertisement on www.careerbuilder.com. I would like to apply for your Event Coordinator position to improve my career.
To be brief, I have extensive experience planning and fundraising for a number of events in the past 15 years of my career. I have been instrumental in the planning of weddings, bar mitzvahs, reunions, conferences, business meetings, and anniversaries. This included knowledge of the area contacts, venues, caterers, technical rental companies, and other important suppliers. I am on a first name basis with many of the area’s best service companies, and can therefore; offer only the best quality service and equipment-at reasonable rates-for this position’s events as well. I manage large scale operations facilitated by many employees with ease and grace. I have great interpersonal skills, and think quickly on my feet.
For all of these reasons, I ask that you consider me for the position of Event Planner for your company. I can be reached at (555)-555-5555 to discuss my background further and thank you so much for your time.
