Dear Mr. Barnhart:

Thank you for the opportunity to speak with you personally yesterday about the position of technical editor. Your company sounds as though it has a superior strategy for putting together technical proposals to meet client needs. I do appreciate the time you spent in overviewing the entire process from engineer surveys to final copy.

My experience in working with more than 50 engineers in the past two years has given me broad experience in combining technical accuracy and principles of good writing. Since our discussion about the current lack of people skills in the editing process, I’m even more eager to bring a sense of cooperation to the job and a willingness to work with your engineers on subsequent drafts until we have a winning proposal in hand.

I’m looking forward to your decision about having me go to work with you to increase your winning proposal ratio.

Sincerely,

Dear Mrs. Trindle:

Thank you for taking the time to speak with me about the opportunities and responsibilities of your service manager position. The dealership’s service center is certainly an impressive operation with up-to-date equipment and a well-trained staff to repair today’s computer-driven vehicles.

I feel I would be particularly well-suited to assist in your effort to improve your public image. In my position as service manager of Sonny’s Transmission Repair, we have earned the Best of Cleveland—Best Car Repair Shop Award from the Cleveland Sentinel for the last four years. I have instituted a six-point customer communication policy that strengthens customer confidence. Since I have managed the shop, repeat business is up 30 percent. I am confident I could do the same for your dealership.

I look forward to hearing from you. I think our association would be a mutually beneficial one.

Sincerely,

Dear Mr. O’Brien:

It was a pleasure to speak with you on Monday regarding the Kids’ Spot assistant producer position. Kids’ Spot sounds like a show that will educate and entertain children for many years to come. I appreciate you taking the time to explain the assistant producer position to me in detail. I feel as though I have a very good idea of what my typical day would be like if I came to your show.

I certainly understand your worries that children’s programming is saturated. In my production work on Simon’s Sandbox, a children’s television show created by the University of Ohio, I gained experience on how to carve out a niche within the industry. When the show’s ratings dropped in 1996, I led a project to retool the program as a nature program. Subsequent ratings were consistently in the top three in northern Ohio children’s programming.

Kids’ Spot’s concentration on safety issues is a much-needed approach. The challenge is to maintain an entertaining tone rather than a lecturing tone. I have several ideas for characters and sketches that would help achieve that goal.

I am eager to hear from you. I think I could make real contributions to Kids’ Spot.

Sincerely,

Dear Ms. Mesner:

I appreciate the time you took out of your busy Monday to explain World Watch’s current projects and the role of the researcher in your business. I already knew that World Watch was one of the most well-respected environmental research firms in the country, but I was surprised at the number of major federal projects you currently handle.

During my graduate studies in the environmental studies department at El Paso College I worked as a research assistant under Dr. Lyle Cardoman, the chair of the Federal Committee on Habitat Conservation. Dr. Cardoman’s committee established the environmental impact guidelines, so I am very familiar with the ins and outs of federal environmental impact studies.

I have every confidence that I would be an asset to your research staff. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Dear Mr. Nelson:

Thank you for meeting with me yesterday to discuss Fowler State’s library system and your assistant librarian opening. Since I was an undergraduate at Fowler State I have been impressed with the extensive library holdings and your commitment to keeping materials accessible to students.

Your struggle to maintain the collections and periodicals subscriptions in the face of budget cuts is one of the major challenges libraries face. I addressed this issue in my master’s thesis, studying the methods four university libraries’ used to cope with decreasing funding.

I have several ideas for Fowler’s library system which proved effective with other universities. For instance, periodicals-tracking software that calculates the circulation rates of specific titles and their annual costs can help you decide which are the most important subscriptions to maintain. Several universities have also had some success obtaining grants to replace previous institutional support. Considering Fowler’s reputation this approach seems quite promising.

I want to see what I can do to improve the library’s funding situation. I am eager to hear what you decide.

Sincerely,
