I am writing in response to your Craigslist post for an executive assistant at XYZ Inc. With experience in reception, composition, and performance, I believe that I am uniquely qualified to help organize and manage a music licensing company.
XYZ is an organization that I have admired since its inception. I previously worked with Karen Green and Michael Jepson when they were touring, and their tireless devotion to exposing commercial audiences to new and diverse electronic dubstep continues to inspire me.
Over the last ten years, I have worked at various jobs in the music industry, and it wasn't until I entered customer service that I realized that my ideal career was a marriage of the two. I have always had a great passion for music, specifically ABC and DEF. I toured with GHI as a performer, and worked for JKL in a tech capacity. As such, I know the ins and outs of the music field, and I have a network of musician connections throughout California, Oregon, and Washington.
Although I've been immersed in this industry for a decade, it wasn't until I became a customer service representative at MNO and a receptionist at PQR that I understood that what I wanted to pursue was organization and management. Touring and tech involved too much travel, and I'm looking forward to putting all of my focus into running a tight ship that is detailed oriented and focused on building a stable network.
Thank you for your consideration.
