Dear (Personalize Whenever Possible):
I saw your advertisement for a web designer and wanted to offer my credentials.
For the past two years I have been an assistant in a fast-paced agency environment and am eager to expand my skills with additional responsibility. At Super Cool Agency, I was able to demonstrate my creativity, my dedication to client service and my willingness to complete all tasks to be a valued member of a team.
I am proficient in the following programs: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe PageMaker, QuarkXPress, MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, MS Outlook; and you will find my customer service skills to be just as finely honed as my diverse computer skills.
I would appreciate the opportunity to show you my portfolio and discuss in more detail the needs of the position. I have attached my resume along with references. I appreciate your consideration and am able to meet as soon as possible. I look forward to your call!
