Mr. Alfred Price
Petty Darn Smart, Inc.
0010 Peach Ave.
Melrose, GA 13281
Dear Mr. Price,
I know how urgently you want to get Pretty Darn Smart software into the hands of teachers throughout the U.S. Well, I'm eager to do the same. And with the growing competition in the educational software field, we need to join forces and get to our potential clients pretty darn quick!
That's right... I want to be your new marketing coordinator.
For nearly four years, I've been developing educational software for InteSoft in California. In fact, as a member of Intel's development team, I worked on "Dotting Your I's," the precursor to your "SwellSpell."
With my recent move to Georgia, I've decided it's time to go back to my original career and real love: marketing.
Let's talk soon — I'm ready to hit the ground running. I'll call you soon to see when I can drop by for a short visit. Thank you!
