April 22, 2022 Ann Application Human Resources Manager XYZ Company 102 North Broadway Menomonie, WI 54751 Dear Donna Application:

Please accept this letter and resume as my application for the Brand Development Position with Building Brands. My educational background in Cross-Media Graphics Management, in addition to my co-op experience working in project management and consulting make me a very strong candidate for this position. I will contribute to this position by providing new and creative ideas, a commitment to practices that encourage collaboration, and a customer focused mindset that builds strong client relationships. In my co-op position with ABC Company, I was part of a team that developed the online brand of a newly created company. My role in this project was to meet with the client to discuss their creative vision, and relay that information to my colleagues in order to develop innovative options for logos and websites. I presented the ideas to the client and used our market research data for their target demographics to explain the direction we went with our branding concepts. Ultimately, we created a successful and well-coordinated launch of the client’s online brand. I also successfully led a project that contributed to client retention by creating work-flow efficiencies. The result of analyzing the progression of orders as they moved through the graphic design department was an improved process that increased work-flow efficiency by 20%. This project required a high degree of attention to detail and the ability to communicate effectively with multiple departments. I am excited for the opportunity to contribute to Building Brands because of your commitment to using creativity and innovative practices to help businesses grow. I look forward to discussing the Brand Development position with you. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact me at 333-555-4444 or at stoutstudent@my.uwstout.edu.
