Dear Ms. Bonwit:

I'd like to thank you for the time you spent talking with me about the marketing-research analyst position you have open at Razzle Magazine. I am very excited about this position and convinced that my marketing background will allow me to contribute to the success of your marketing department.

Last summer I attended a three-week intensive seminar on SPSS. I know the job description mentions the ability to use SPSS, and I wanted to make sure you knew that I am extremely well versed in the use of this software. Please contact me if you have any questions about my ability with this program or about any of my other qualifications.

As you know, my work-study position in the institutional research office at U.C. Santa Cruz provided me with excellent background for marketing research work.

I look forward to hearing from you soon about the position. Thank you for meeting with me.

Sincerely,

Valerie Smith
