Applying An Entry Level of Public Relations Specialist Position

Dear Mrs. Smith,

I would like to be considered for the position of Public Relations Specialist for the Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority which I discovered on  As a Des Moines native, I am committed to the development of the city and helping to promote the use of mass transportation.

I recently graduated from The University of Iowa where I majored in Journalism and Mass
Communications.  During my time at Iowa, I developed strong communication skills through my coursework and in several internship and volunteer activities.  My most meaningful internship was with the University Relations Office where I wrote news releases and gained experience working with the media during the 2008 flood.  I contributed to the office by providing regular updates to local and regional broadcast, print and internet media.  I have also been active with the local chapter of PRSSA where I organized several presentations by outside speakers.

I have enclosed my resume and I would be grateful for the opportunity to discuss my application with you at an interview.  I will contact you in a few days to explore the possibility of a personal interview.
