To whom this may concern: I am submitting my resume to your company because I believe I will be a great fit. Not only will I offer my dedication to maintaining good values, but equally important, I will already come with experience in the event industry from planning events to raising money for several local organizations. I plan to take advantage of every opportunity to succeed and accept advice, and/or criticisms, to improve; on the job, in building relationships and in my everyday life. For the past few years, between going to school at Washington State University and working a variety of different jobs, I have been passionate about doing events and raising funds as a volunteer and event planner. Having undertaken several prominent events, I have come to understand the importance of working hard and being driven. I feel that pursuing a job in the event industry is something that I was meant to do, and working for your company will help me maintain my career choice. I will go above and beyond the average work schedule to learn and work as much as needed. My goal is to be the best I possibly can be for your organization, and I am not afraid to start out at the bottom to prove myself. I would be happy to have a chance to talk with you in person about your company and how I can help. If you have any questions, please give me a call anytime at 360.825.4628. I appreciate your time and kind consideration. Sincerely, Jeremy
