Dear Mr Gonzalez,

Re: (Enter Position / Ref here)

I wish to apply for the vacant Advertising Director position and am strongly convinced of my suitability for the post in view of my education, industry related training and career aspirations within advertising in general. I am drawn to the many challenges which the position entails and feel they present an ideal opportunity for me at this stage in my career.

For the past ten years, I have honed my skills in adverstising working as Market Research Director at ZYX Rosena Media where I lead a team of 10 staff within the Marketing Department. I recently project managed successful development of a $120m marketing development plan from conception to completion, working within budget and schedule. The project was commissioned by a well known telecommunications corporation and I orchestrated a comprehensive advertising plan embracing radio, television, bill boards and the internet.

I am hands-on and proactive with a successful track record raising advertisement revenue, streamlining marketing and implementing sound strategies. My progressive career has enabled me to develop and maintain sound relations with a large network of clients, many of whom are high profile.

I am convinced I am a suitable candidate for the Advertising Director position because of my successful track record over the past decade as evidenced in my resume. I hope therefore, that on consideration of my CV, you will be persuaded of my potential to perform well and make a real contribution as a member of your marketing team at BZZ marketing Bureau. In the meantime, I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely,


Jim Haynes
