Dear Ms. Jack:
I read about ABC Company’s Management Trainee program in College Graduate Magazine and would like to be considered for any upcoming openings.

It will be a great pleasure to learn more regarding the ABC Company’s mission and the potential job opportunities.
As indicated in the attached resume, I have recently completed my Master of Science Degree in Management with a focus on Personnel Administration. Additionally, I also have hands-on experience as a Management Associate and Key Holder. I have gained valuable skills through two summer internships focusing on retail management.
My resume details further information regarding my education, experience and leadership capabilities. I would be grateful for the opportunity to discuss your management trainee program and my qualifications in detail.
To follow-up on my job inquiry, I will call your secretary after two weeks. If you need further information about my qualifications, I can be reached at (000) 202-2522.
