Ms. Kristin Heller
The Research Institute
34 Marketing Court
Princeton, NJ 08540

Dear Ms. Heller,

My strong educational background, including a forthcoming master’s degree in marketing, combined with several years of media experience, make me an ideal candidate for a senior research analyst position with your organization.

Through my marketing/research experiences and my master’s thesis, which have particularly dealt with improving marketing research studies so they can better define multiple media audiences, from traditional magazine readership to Website audiences, I am certain I could provide valuable assistance in satisfying research demands of clients, managing key projects, and assisting in the development of new research techniques designed to attract new clients.

� Besides my education and past experience, I bring with me my media research blog, which has won numerous awards and has been reprinted in various media outlets. I want to bring my innovative techniques to your organization and collaborate on future endeavors that bring additional clients and revenues to The Research Institute.

� I am sure my services would be useful to you, and I will call you in early October to discuss an interview.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Scott Morris
