February 1, 20xx 123 Happy Land Baltimore, MD 21231 Mr. Cletus McDermont 321 East West Plaza Mt. Washington 21345 Cletus, I have investigated your company for a while, and I must say that I like what I see. I have always wanted to work for a company like yours, with five offices in the Baltimore area and plenty of opportunities for me to advance. From my education to my work experience, I know I would make a good candidate for the concierge position at Log House Hotels. The job description states that Log House seeks a candidate who is outgoing, polite and positive. Being a first generation American, I know that a positive attitude is an important trait. When my parents came here from Columbia, they job-hopped between several states, and spoke very little English, so I had to rely on my charismatic nature and outgoing personality in each new school to make friends with the other girls my age. I quickly discovered how much I enjoyed seeing meeting and interacting with new people. My social nature drove me to seek a career in hospitality management, which I did at Morgan State University. I discovered that hospitality is more than just being friendly. It is about problem solving and tending to people’s needs. Even though I still have a lot to learn, I am passionate about hospitality, and I know I will do a great job at Log House. Some of my credentials include a 4.0 GPA, an athletic scholarship, and an academic scholarship. I worked hard to achieve this and could bring my tenacity to Log House. I know that I will advance quickly in your company and look forward to reaching a level of success worthy of my high standards. I will be available for an interview on Wednesday of next week between noon and three, so lets pencil in a time to meet. My number is 410-456-9876. Have a blessed day, Jan Hablestram

(Where did you hear about the job? What do you know about the company?) For the past four years I have matriculated (Big word for no reason) at Morgan State University with a major in Accounting at the Earl Graves School of Business (Will they know what this is?). Now completing my final year (On Earth? Do you mean “senior year?”), I have finished all of the required accounting coursework (Such as? Give them an idea of what you studied specifically). Also, I have real-world (Has your world been fake at some point?) experience. I have worked as an intern for Stan, Mark and Jacobs, LLC since last summer (Provide the year you worked there), and I am familiar with practical accounting applications. I think (Weak wording) I would make a great addition to your team. If you agree(Do not provide the excuse) that my qualifications and experience would make a good addition to your company, please contact me at 443-555-5555 so we can set up a meeting. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you (Insecure wording). Best wishes, (This is a business letter not a post card from Hawaii) Harold Smith Harold Smith 123 Happy Lane Baltimore, MD 21211 Leland Palmer Horne, Palmer and Packert 1700 East Cold Spring Lane Baltimore, MD 21222 January 29, 20xx Dear Mr. Palmer, I am applying for the junior analyst position at Horne, Palmer and Packert , advertised on The Wall Street Journal’s website. I know that Horne, Palmer and Packert focuses on servicing small business owners in the Baltimore area for over twenty years and I am eager to become a part of that tradition. In May 20xx, I will be graduating from Morgan State University with a B.A. in Accounting, and my experience there has been incredibly rewarding. Morgan has provided me with a strong foundation in general accounting and business practices, and it has instilled in me the confidence to face new challenges, excelling in whatever I do. In addition to my education, I have been fortunate enough to apply my skills away from college. For the past year, I have worked at Stan, Mark and Jacobs, LLC as an intern. There, I prepared tax statements, balance sheets, income statements, and quarterly reports. Because of my high level of performance, I was placed in charge of two new interns. This responsibility has provided me with the great opportunity to practice working in teams, muli-tasking, and delegating responsibility. I am eager to bring all of these qualities to Horne, Palmer and Packert. I know that I will make a great addition to your team, and I look forward to meeting you in person. Contact me at 443-555-5555 so we can arrange a time to meet. However, if I do not hear from you within a week, I will be sure to contact you. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Harold Smith Harold Smith 765 East West Street Baltimore, MD 21284 August 14, 20xx Mr. Marty Clowning 1234 Happy Lane Hauss, TX 345322 Dear Mr. Clowning, I am writing in response to the conversation we had last Monday at the Fairmount Rodeo where you asked me to send you a copy of my resume, and here it is. As you can see, I have spent quite a few years in the rodeo business. I have graduated from the top schools in both interpretive dance and cloning so I’m pretty sure I have the skills your looking for. In addition to my education, I have been in the industry since 20xx and I am able to perform all the tasks of a rodeo clown. Please call me at your earliest convenience so we can talk about this exciting opportunity. Sincerely, Rod Munch 765 East West Street Baltimore, MD 21284 August 14, 20xx Mr. Marty Clowning 1234 Happy Lane Hauss, TX 345322 Dear Mr. Clowning, I am writing in response to the conversation we had last Monday (date) at the Fairmount Rodeo where you asked me to send you a copy of my resume, and here it is (This should be obvious). As you can see, (If they can see it…) I have spent quite a few years (How many is “quite” a few?) in the rodeo business. I have graduated from the top schools (What are the “top” schools?) in both interpretive dance and cloning (Spelling) so I’m (Contraction) pretty sure (weak language) I have the skills your (spelling error) looking for (What Skills?). In addition to my education, I have been in the industry since 20xx and I am able to perform all the tasks of a rodeo clown (What tasks?). Please call me at your earliest convenience (No contact information) so we can talk about this exciting opportunity. (Weak) Sincerely, (No room for signature) Rod Munch 765 East West Street Baltimore, MD 21284 August 14, 20xx Mr. Marty Clowning 1234 Happy Lane Hauss, TX 345322 Dear Mr. Clowning, I spoke with you last Monday at the Fairmount Rodeo when you commented how difficult it is to find a good rodeo clown nowadays. I told you that I was one of the good clowns, and you asked me to send you my resume. Being a rodeo clown has always been my passion and I look forward to working with you at Clowning Around, which is legendary for turning out the best clowns in the industry like Sideshow Mel and Krusty the Clown. With my education and experience in the clowning industry, I am certain that I will be a valuable asset to your team. I have my undergraduate from Morgan State University in Interpretive Dance, which taught me how to entertain all audiences. After Morgan I moved on to get my Masters Degree from Clowning University, a college well known for its hands-on approach to teaching. My graduate degree taught me how to avoid bulls and stuff myself into a barrel more quickly than any other students in my class. This ability also earned me the awards of “Clown of the Year” (20xx) and “Best in Show” (20xx). As we all know, even the best clown gets hurt, and I am no different. In 20xx I took a horn in my third vertebrate and was laid up in a cast for sixth months, but I have fully recovered, been back out in the ring for the past year without any problems, and I am ready to join your team. Contact me at 443-555-1234 or job4me@business.net as soon as you review this resume so we can set up a time to meet. If I do not hear from you in a week, I will be sure to contact you. Thank you for this opportunity; I look forward to working with you at Clowning Around. Sincerely, Rod Munch
