Mr. Henry Rogers
Dear Mr. Rogers:
Your advertisement depicting an opening for a Desktop Publisher at Covance piqued my interest immensely as I have been working in a similar position for three years now. My reason for wanting to work for Covance is simple – with so much creative aptitude, I believe that your company can benefit from my vision where graphics are concerned.
Since the time I worked on desktop publishing software for the very first time, I was convinced of my vocation. Comprehending the ever growing need for continually appealing visuals, I have the capacity to create, develop and format tables, photographs, text and charts in a visually appealing manner. With a profound ability to translate complex concepts with the aid of simple graphical approaches, I have been acclaimed for my work several times during the last five years. My expertise in Adobe InDesign and PowePoint are finely tuned as I have worked on them extensively. With my inherent attention to detail, I strive hard to create marketing campaigns that are easy to comprehend and pleasant to the eye.
My interests in this work along with my experience make a good combination for the eligibility criteria of this position. I will call you next week to see if we can meet to discuss this further and can be contacted at (669) 999-9009 if you require any further information from me.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
