Dear Mr./Ms. LastName,

I am a senior at the State University interested in interviewing for a job as a Marketing Assistant with ABCD. I believe that ABCD has the ideal culture in which to pursue my goal of becoming an innovative and responsible arts administrator and contributing to the ABCD company's outstanding record as a center for exhibition and discussion of contemporary art and culture.

Academically, my extensive course work in the art history department at the State University has allowed me to gain an understanding and appreciation for the art your company exhibits. I also have studied broader elements of arts management, including audience development and fund-raising as a part of my recent arts management class at State University. As a part of that class, I worked for the BCE Museum examining their marketing strategies, as well as other institutions, in an effort to discover the most effective and efficient manner to promote their upcoming exhibition. This rewarding experience working for the BCE Museum sharpened my desire to continue in this field and helped me develop the tools I need to be an effective arts administrator. I have also been able to spend time working for BCE Museum specifically as a survey assistant, which has further strengthened my interest in museum studies.

My previous summer work experience as a staff reporter for The XWZ newspaper, as well as my experience working for my school's paper, have provided me with a strong base of communication knowledge and helped me learn how to develop and work on several projects at once, write about a diverse range of topics, work quickly and efficiently, and further developed my interest in becoming a better marketer.

I firmly believe that I will be a good fit in ABCD's innovative environment. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Your Signature
