Job-Seeker Cold (Direct) Contact Prospecting Sample Cover Letter


23 Hickory Tree Way
Belle Mead, NJ 08502

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
