Dear Ms. Heidi Smith,
I am applying for the open position of Event Specialist now available at Kelly Services and my credentials match the requirements listed in your posting.
I have three years of experience working for a wedding planning company where I helped to make this very special day perfect for many couples. During this time, I acquired an associate degree in event planning and I gained valuable hands on experience organizing and putting together wedding ceremonies and receptions.
I learned how to pay close attention to every detail to ensure perfection. I also acquired excellent research skills needed to learn about special customs and proper etiquette used by different cultures. This helps to personalize each event by making sure that the right foods and beverages are served and that the decorations are appropriate. The little things often make the biggest impression and I believe in taking that extra step to make sure even the smallest detail is handled professionally.
I have connections with a number of other professionals in the business such as caterers, photographers and entertainers. I have acquired excellent interpersonal and communication skills with the ability to create a relaxing environment in which to set down with the clients to discuss the details of the events. I have lots of patience in addition to excellent multi-tasking and time management skills.
I am free to travel to different locations to personally inspect the venue before choosing the best one for the occasion and then to be present to make sure everything is in order and running smoothly during the event.
My contact number is (555)-555-5555.
