Mr. Vance Dorza, President
Edgie Marketing, llc
4545 South Main Street
Rainwater, MO 76777

Dear Mr. Dorza,

Our paths first crossed several years ago when you spoke to my marketing class at the University of Mid Nebraska. At that time you challenged each of us to make a difference in the world and told of your early struggles to not only obtain a degree, but launch your company.

Since that time, I've followed the rapid growth of your cutting-edge marketing firm. This past year, I read that Edgie had been awarded an Addy for the innovative marketing campaign you created for WarmStone Creamery.

Your advice to find an internship in my senior year was invaluable to me. Upon graduation, my mentor at that firm introduced me to ACB Multi-media. For the past 3 years I have worked in all facets of marketing: internet, multi-media and print. I would now like to explore where my education and experience would be of the greatest value to a firm located in the St. Louis area.

I do remember you telling us you would always be happy to answer questions. I kept your business card. I will call your secretary in a few days to arrange a meeting at your convenience. I look forward to meeting you again and gaining your insight for my career path.

Thanks, so much, for the great advice you gave me while at college.

Sincerely,

Mary Smith
