Dear Mr. Holloway:

I know that you are busy and must receive hundreds of unsolicited resumes from hopeful communications majors looking for work in the music recording industry. To be honest with you, I’m no exception. But before you discard or file away my request, I’d appreciate your attention for just a moment so that I can tell you a little about myself.

First of all, I have an immense, profound love for popular music, whether it be rock, rap or R&B. Since the age of 7, I’ve been reading liner notes and have amassed quite a thorough knowledge of who’s who in the recording business. It’s love such as this that breeds dedication. Despite the tremendous competition that I’m up against, nothing will discourage me from pursuing my dreams of a career in the music industry. This is my calling!

Briefly, I offer

  • Boundless creative energy with an imaginative way of dealing with problems.
  • Articulate verbal skills and the ability to deliver messages with impact.
  • Personal assertiveness, especially in face-to-face or phone contact with high-profile clients.
  • A strong sensitivity to the needs of others, enabling the development of solid business relationships.
  • Excellent planning, organizing and numerical skills, as well as a familiarity with computers.

Some examples of my abilities are illustrated in the enclosed resume. Up to now, my work experience has been limited, but my high degree of motivation has been recognized by my employers, who have quickly promoted me to positions of increased responsibility.

My enthusiasm and potential are there, waiting to be unleashed and molded as you see fit. Ultimately, my goal is a position as an artist relations or marketing rep, but all I want at this point is to get my foot in the door of an organization associated with the music recording industry. It doesn’t matter if I’m assigned to the mailroom or some other clerical area. Salary is also not my primary concern. I would even be interested in an unpaid internship if it presented an opportunity to learn the industry from the ground up.

If any situations exist where you think I could be of value, or if you have any suggestions as to others with whom it might be beneficial to speak, I’d like to hear from you. I’m looking forward to the chance of meeting with you to discuss these possibilities. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
