Ms. Diane Johannson
Director of Marketing
International Division -Abacus Company
Dear Ms. Johannson,
As a recent Bachelor of Commerce graduate, with majors in marketing and international business, the opportunity
to work within the marketing department of a global organization is very exciting. My university grades show an
understanding of the theory and fundamentals of management and my marketing grades show a keen interest and
aptitude for this specific type of career.
I have experience with both marketing and management. I obtained marketing experience while working at the
Human Resource Centre for Students. In this position I was responsible for promoting the Centre within the
community through advertising, event planning and personal contact with employers. I was very involved in
marketing through a well-established student group in the Faculty of Management. As Associate Director of the
Manitoba International Marketing Competition, I organized and planned a university level competition involving
teams of students from all regions of the world. I negotiated an agreement with a hotel, planned all social events
and delegated tasks to a committee of 8 key members. This marketing competition – the only student run
international event of its kind in North America - is a high profile event funded in part by the Manitoba business
community, and consisting of over 100 participants.
I am also experienced in various other aspects of management including Hr management and client relationship
building. I was a manager at a McDonald’s Restaurant for five years, and was responsible for the effective
operation of the restaurant, and the control of staff and production. My management experience also extends to
counseling and mediation. As Resident Assistant at the University of Manitoba, I planned activities for 12
residents, recognized potential problems, and provided guidance and support.
Ms. Johannson, I welcome the opportunity to speak to you further about my keen interest in a marketing role with
your company. I believe I will be able to enrich your team at Abacus. I relish a role that will provide me with the
opportunity to grow, while learning from your dynamic and experienced marketing team. I sincerely look forward
to discussing this opportunity with you in person.
