Dear Mr. XXXXX,

This letter is in response to your job posting at Fitchburg State University's Office of Career Services for the position of Assistant to the Director of Development. This position seems to fit very well with my education, experience and career interests.

Your position requires proven communication skills, creativity, and dedication to public service. As an English major, I developed the skills to write effectively, utilizing different writing styles for different projects. These skills were further honed while working as an Assistant Recruitment Coordinator and a Paralegal. During my association with the Boy Scouts of America, I created a successful fundraising campaign that took advantage of increased public awareness of environmental issues. This program continues to this day and has become the cornerstone of local fundraising efforts. Throughout my life I have been involved in some form of public service and have recognized that it has always been an important and enjoyable part of my life. Being able to increase my involvement in public service and contribute to society on a professional level is exciting.

Your organization effectively provides an essential service that is reflected by its excellent reputation. I am confident that I can make significant contributions to your efforts and look forward to the possibility of becoming a member of the New York Cares team.

I will be contacting you in the next few days in hope of arranging an interview. Should you need to reach me, please feel free to call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to talking with you.
