Re: Forensic Artist | Advertised on Monster
Dear Ms. Jones:
It is no secret that forensic sketch art is considered a dying art. The advances of computer-aided design tools used to create realistic digital composite drawings make hand sketches seem like relics of a bygone era. While I embrace technology, I also believe that hand-drawn sketches can be just as effective in capturing the nuances of facial characteristics.
The forensic artist opening advertised on Monster marries old-school drawing with modern technology, and I am very interested in joining your team.
As part of my associate’s degree in fine art program that I completed last year, I worked as a police composite artist apprentice for XYZ Police Department in Sometown, NY. In this role, I sketched accurate facial likenesses and created digital age progressions using Photoshop to help find missing persons and identify criminal suspects.
Throughout the apprenticeship, I was commended for my ability to build rapport with witnesses, crime victims, family members and law enforcement officers to help solve active and cold cases. I developed skills in forensic-imaging techniques, portraiture and facial-change characteristics.
ABC Agency’s mission to rescue and recover missing and exploited children is one that I share, and I believe I can make significant contributions as a member of your team. You can reach me at 555-555-5555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your time.

Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],
In response to the posting for a Sales Manager at Epic Scope Technology, I am writing to demonstrate my interest in this position since I believe I have the necessary expertise and qualifications. Based on my many years in sales, marketing, management, and customer service, I am proficient and competent in my skills and knowledge.
As the previous Director of Sales at LT Design, I have had experience in recruiting, training, and developing my sales team nationally. I understand what it takes to manage a team, develop strong relationships with clients, efficiently meet sales quota, and maintain a vibrant and ambitious attitude as a representative for my company.
For the past 3 years as the Director of Sales, I persistently exceeded quotas and generated sales of at least $120,000 per fiscal quarter. I am confident in my abilities to do the same and perform well for Epic Scope Technology. I’ve also managed a sales team and have trained each of them to be a motivated sales representative for my company. I’ve successfully taught strategic sales and operations to my team, applying effective sales tactics that have proven to exceed quotas. With this managerial background, I can certainly achieve the same as a Sales Manager for Epic Scope Technology.
I understand Epic Scope Technology is growing rapidly in the tech industry, and you have recently merged with Slackpot Productions Inc, which has a huge focus in both design and technology. I have been in the product design industry for many years and understand both fields very well. With my industrial knowledge in both design and technology, I can easily and effectively meet sales objectives for Epic Scope Technology.
It is with great interest and enthusiasm that I apply to this position. With my strong work ethic and pro-activeness, I believe I can contribute a lot to Epic Scope Technology. Both my sales and managerial background, in addition to my industrial knowledge, makes me the perfect fit for this job.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I sincerely hope you will allow me the opportunity to prove my skills and experience through an interview. I look forward to hearing from you.
