  3. 3. NVAAlexandria, VAEntry Level- Marketing, Customer Service & ManagementTo whom it Concerns:I am very interested in the Entry Level- Marketing, Customer Service & Management position with NVA that was postedon Indeed.com, and I believe that my education and employment background make me an excellent fit for this position.Since graduating from Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania, I have noticed my growing interest in design, marketingand public relations. Last summer, I interned with Lindsey Mask, CEO of Mask Media Co., a D.C. based PR firm andfounder of Ladies America. My position there required organization and creativity. Some projects I assisted with ormanaged were designing promotional items and websites, researching organizations and planning outreach strategies,implementing social media, and a variety of clerical duties.While I am not specifically trained in marketing per say I believe that my Communication/Journalism (Print emphasis)degree and photography background give me a strong advantage that other applicants may not have. What this meansfor you is that I am a strong writer with AP style knowledge that can not only write and edit, but also design a page layoutand art to finalize your next promotional piece or website. And is that not what it is all about? Streamlining the process tobe more efficient.Through every position I have held and experience I have had I always remember the importance of a positive outlookand the power a smile can hold. I am told that I have a disarming personality that allows me to be very approachableand create a calming effect. While I am not sure that is entirely true, I do know that I am a people person and I am willingto help out in any way that I am able. I enjoy solving puzzles and I never miss deadlines.Mainly, what I am hoping to find is a position were my contributions count and my efforts are appreciated- and hopefullya long-term commitment.Hopefully, I will prove to be the perfect fit for your company and we will talk real soon.Sincerely,Leslie ArakelianCover Letter3
