I’m applying for a position in a different part of the company for which I work. I would bet that many, many people have applied for this specific postion and I want to stand out from the field. My idea was to write a letter to the hiring manager. Body is below. Any feedback from you smart Dopers about content and grammar would be highly appreciated.
Dear Ms. X:
The purpose of this letter is to emphasize my interest in your open Communications Consultant position. When I read the job description and minimum qualifications, I got so excited! They both seem to suit my work style perfectly. It appears as though my positive outlook, direct communication style, excellent organizational skills, and love of public speaking would all be utilized very effectively in this position.
It is my hope that I am being considered for the vacancy and that I will hear from you in the near future about scheduling an interview.
