Dear Mr./Ms.__________________________,

I recently spoke with you at the Jobs for Bruins Career Fair held at the University of California, Los Angeles. I wanted to thank you for taking the time to speak with me, and for providing me with valuable information about the job opportunities at Company Name, Inc. I was very excited to hear that you are currently recruiting UCLA graduates for entry level positions in your marketing department. My varied experience in marketing and sales, combined with my research background in psychology are my strongest qualifications for a marketing position at Company Name, Inc.

As you can see from the enclosed resume, I have promoted a variety of products through my involvement with fundraising for the UCLA Student Society. As fundraising chair, I raised over five thousand dollars for membership activities. In addition, I assisted a colleague in marketing his start-up internet company JoeComputer.com. My marketing, computer research, and event planning experiences, as well as my oral and written communication skills, should prove valuable to increasing Company Name, Inc.’s sales volume. I am enthusiastic about pursuing a career in marketing with Company Name, Inc., because of its diverse product line and international scope.

I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my qualifications in more detail. I can be reached at _____ or by email at _____. I will follow up with you in five business days to discuss the possibility of securing an in person interview.
