Dear Ms. Little:
I am writing in reference to the open position of Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Information. I will
be earning a bachelor of business administration degree with a marketing concentration in May 20XX, and
am eager to utilize both my academic and sports industry experience at Winston-Salem State University.
A combination of academic coursework and practical experience in the sports industry has prepared me to
become an effective team member at the “Campus of Champions.” As a volunteer for the Kent State women’s
basketball team, I increased my knowledge of the year-round operation of a Division I sports program.
Maintaining and disseminating various game statistics has provided me the opportunity to illustrate my
accuracy, attention to detail and ability to adhere to strict deadlines. Through this process, I developed
trusting relationships with players, coaches and members of the media. My internship with the Akron Aeros
further developed my writing and organizational skills. Via press releases and other team publications, I was
able to combine technical and creative writing styles that both informed and entertained the reader. I operated
promotional booths throughout the Akron area, which enhanced public awareness of the Aeros. As a result of
these experiences, I have grown accustomed to weekend and evening hours.
As my resume indicates, I have experience with HTML. My increased responsibilities with the women’s
basketball team this season will include assisting with their web site. I have sought out opportunities to
enhance my interpersonal skills as well. My involvement as Vice President of the American Marketing
Association has given me more confidence in communicating with a wide range of audiences.
With my related experience and educational background, I believe I can make a significant contribution to the
Winston-Salem State University Athletic Department. I would like an opportunity to further discuss the
position and my qualifications. To arrange an interview, please call me at 330-672-2360. I will contact you in a
week to confirm receipt of my materials. Thank you for your consideration.
