Email Message:

Dear Human Resources Manager,

I saw your posting for Director of Communications and am very interested in the position.

Currently, I am a communications director for the ABC Company and in this capacity I write the company newsletter as well as all other materials for our external audiences. I also encourage submissions from within the company so that the newsletter becomes more interesting to them.

Recently, I assisted a local candidate who was seeking an assemblyman position. I wrote his speeches and assisted with proposed legislative materials, maintained his office correspondence, and did research for him.

My work as a freelance writer writing about labor issues has garnered me a following. You can review my articles that are posted on the web at the following sites:

I have provided writing samples and my resume for your convenience and I hope to hear from you soon.
