Dear Mr. Jannes,

I am writing to apply for the position of Project Coordinator in your Media Relations department. I learned about this position through Dr. Allen, my academic advisor at the University of Maine at Farmington. ABC Company has an outstanding communications department and I would be interested in learning more about it. As a recent graduate of the University of Maine at Farmington with significant experience in administration and media, I bring the energy and commitment to excellence necessary to thrive in ABC’s innovative environment.

In my work with the Alumni Relations office, I was involved with several aspects of media relations, both with alumni and with undergraduates. For example, I was responsible for enhancing our social media presence and created opportunities for people to start a conversation with each other. This experience, combined with deep and varied employment and internship experience as a journalist and media consultant, prepare me to succeed at ABC Company.

I am excited about the opportunity to join the ABC team. I welcome the opportunity to talk with you further about the position. The best way to reach me is by phone (207-555-1212).

Thank you for your consideration,


Mary Jo Smith
