Hello Nancy and the team, This is going to be a weird cover letter that I’m going to write. I mean usually, when you write a cover letter to work for a company, you don’t really know the company. You know their projects through their website, with the social media, but you don’t really know the people. And I’m convinced that a company is before everything the people that work for it. So that’s why, it’s hard for me to be objective, to talk about the cool projects that you are doing and to explain the reason that makes me want to write this cover letter to work for you. Because the main reason I want to work for Banfield Seguin Ltd. is because I love the people that work there. I think I met you all (almost), and I really could see myself evolve in this agency. I’m, as you know, an intern at the NAC. I mostly work with the French Theatre, but I do other things for the other departments. My main assignments were: - Gathering the content to put in the house program and the websites for each show - Working with the graphic and web designers to give a good layout to the promotion - Reviewing meticulously until the product is perfect I had to be creative, patient, understanding, respectful of the delay, and always listening to what the designers have to say. But, I want to do more. And I just realized, right after the presentation you gave for NACO acquisition campaign, that I wanted to work in an Advertising Agency. I feel like this is where I belong, and the fact that I get along with people working there proves it. My only problem, and that’s why it’s hard for me to get a job in an ad agency, is that I have never worked in an ad agency. So I can’t pretend that I want a position as a project manager or copywriter, because I have never done those things like that, but I want to do them.

I have 6 months left in Canada, and I want to spend these months working for you. Any position will be perfect; I want to know how an agency works! I’m young, creative, rigorous, and very pleasant to work with. I’m also completely bilingual. But, even if I didn’t know your people, I would still want to work for you. I understand completely why you have so many French internship requests. You are an agency turned towards the future, your sponsorship with Alcatel-Lucent is AMAZING. It gave me goose bumps when, during the NACO presentation, you talk about that huge touch screen that would play the music according to your mood. That’s genius, I want to be part of great things like that! My contract with the NAC ends soon, and I would really be looking forward to working with you. I’m hoping to hear from you soon. Best regards, Vincent
