Cover Letter for Graphic Designer

This cover letter email does three things for Tina, who is a server at Joe's Coffee Company. Tina wants a promotion to graphic designer in Joe's Marketing Department. Here's what she achieves with her email:

  • Tina thanks the hiring manager for his┬árecent phone call about the career move she has in mind.
  • She follows up on a promise she made to send her resume. And, while she's at it, she includes a portfolio of samples that demo her graphic design talents.
  • Near the end of the email, Tina suggests an in-person interview to explore her request for a promotion.

Dear Mr. Grove,

Thank you for spending time on the phone with me regarding your upcoming employment opening in marketing. I am enclosing my resume and portfolio of samples.

As I mentioned, I have enjoyed working at Joe's for almost two years now. Since my real love is graphic design, an ideal career move would be to join Joe's Marketing Department, where I can use my talents to promote an organization I believe in.

I appreciate your review of my qualifications and welcome the opportunity to meet with you in person. I will call your office next week to see if an appointment is possible.

Sincerely,

Tina Maxwell
