Alexis W. Wood,

Gainesville, GA 30501,
(678)-928 7056.

Date: May 1, 2005.

Mr. Gilberto F. Williams,
National Inc.,
2554 Maple Avenue,
Nezperce, ID 83543.

Dear Mr. Williams,

My outgoing personality, my sales experience, and my recently completed education make me a strong candidate for a position of an insurance broker for National Inc.

I recently graduated from the National University, New York, with a degree in Marketing. I have a more practical approach towards studies which made me well prepared to face the challenges lying ahead. I was the president of both the Future Business Leaders of America and the American Marketing Association.

Although I have recently completed my graduation, I possess a lot of hands-on experience. I attended schools in Chicago, New Jersey and Boston and I've put myself through these schools by taking up jobs in the field of radio advertising, newspaper subscription and even bartending. All of these jobs have only enhanced my formal education.

I have the maturity, skills, and abilities to embark on a career in insurance brokering, and I'd like to do this in Manhattan, my home state.

I will be in New York at the end of this month, and I'd like to talk with you concerning a position at National Inc. I will follow up this letter with a phone call to see if I can arrange a time to meet with you.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Mr. William A. Smith,
Imperial Consultancy Services,
2682 Hilltop Haven Drive,
Belleville, NJ 07109.

Dear Mr. Smith,

I am a senior at National University majoring in English, and I am extremely interested in a position with Imperial Consultancy Services, upon graduation.

Consulting is definitely the career I want to pursue. Work on my dissertation to this point has involved extensive research, hypothesis formulation, hours of analysis, and team collaboration with my mentor. I understand this process is not unlike the consulting project cycle. In addition, my elective coursework in microeconomics has increased my interest and honed my skills in the business arena. A series of conversations with consultants at various firms - especially National Inc., has confirmed that consulting is the right career for me.

Your organization appeals to me for a number of reasons. I am extremely interested in the life sciences and telecom industries, and Imperial Consultancy Services, is particularly strong in those industries. I am also drawn to the small size of the firm, as I feel it would create more immediate opportunities for leadership and a strong community environment. Finally, I have been incredibly impressed with all of the consultants I've spoken with from your firm; each person is bright yet humble, passionate yet and good-natured. I would be thrilled to join your firm.

I have enclosed my resume for your review. I very much appreciate your time and consideration, and I hope to hear from your team in the near future.
