Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
I was delighted to read of your need for an event planner and readily meet all your qualifications.
As an event planner for a small local bank, I am ready to take on the increased responsibility that this position demands. Among the areas where I excel are presenting and tracking budgets, meeting and assessing vendors, negotiating services, creatively identifying themes, and attending and evaluating the events.
Through my three years at the bank, I have developed wonderful vendor relationships that I can bring to this position, and also am open and eager to meeting and evaluating new ones to ensure the best quality and value for the events. My strong customer service skills ensure that I can work with both external and internal teams to create a successful, impactful event.
My excellent organization and project management skills mean that all parties will always be clear on status. I am proficient in Microsoft Office Applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook).
Though I hesitate to connect you with any references yet as I am applying confidentially, I hope that you will visit my LinkedIn profile for glowing reviews of my work from satisfied internal clients and vendors.
Thank you so much for your consideration of my candidacy!
