Application for Marketing/PR position

Dear Ms. Hollman,

I am writing to apply for the Marketing/Public Relations position you posted on

As you’ll see from my resume I have a solid foundation in marketing. As a Media Planner/Supervisor, I worked to identify who our customers’ targets were and to understand their media habits in order to streamline our clients’ media spending. With the abundance of new media venues, it is more important than ever to effectively reach your target, cut through the clutter and stand out as a brand. I couldn’t imagine anything more fun to promote and write about than visiting Disney’s many theme parks.

I also have a strong background in newsletter creation. In college I was a copy editor of our student-run newspaper and worked hard to edit the content for accuracy, grammar and cohesion. Later, I volunteered as the newsletter editor for the Fort Richardson Spouses’ Club newsletter, where I collected stories, edited them, put the newsletter together and pushed it out to our members.

I am a quick learner and I would love the opportunity to work with you.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.

Catherine E. Gilbert
