Dear Ms. Kelley:
I am formally applying for the Marketing Associate position with Scarrone Consulting which is posted on Florida Atlantic University Career Development website. Scarrone Consulting is an ideal fit for me due to my interests in international business and I feel my qualifications are a good match for the responsibilities of this position.
As a senior, marketing major with additional coursework in finance and economics, I feel my academic background fits well with the nature of your work. I was an active leader in many of my upper level business projects and took advantage of every opportunity to learn about international markets. This past summer I interned at Morgan Stanley and was exposed to many areas of client services. This experience enabled me to understand marketing and consulting strategies as well as being a contributing member of some major team projects. These experiences, in and out the classroom, have solidified my interest in an organization like Scarrone Consulting.
My resume demonstrates a high level of involvement outside the classroom at Florida Atlantic University. I have been an active participant and have taken on leadership in many of my volunteer activities. Leading a major fund raising campaign for my fraternity and being a committee leader for Special Olympics have been highlights for me. My involvements at Florida Atlantic University, as well as holding a part-time position throughout college convey a strong work ethic and boundless energy. After graduation, I would like to continue my strong performance with Scarrone Consulting.
I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my candidacy in more detail. Please contact me by phone or email if you need any additional information. Thank you for your time and consideration.

RE: Head Coach Women’s Tennis , Letter of Interest
Dear Ms Christine Plonsky
I am very grateful and excited for this honor in applying for the position of Head Coach for Women’s Tennis at University of Texas!
Billy Jean King, one of the 20th centuries most respected and influential people, has encouraged me to pursue a career in college coaching.(We both thrive on team competitions) I believe that the University of Texas provides a unique opportunity and challenge to get to the highest level of college tennis. My knowledge, skills and experience make me an ideal candidate to lead this outstanding program.
Having maintained a ranking of number one in the world for 199 weeks on the WTA Tour, while running a profitable tennis academy and of course being a mom, I have first hand experience of what it takes to achieve success. I believe that there is no substitute for experience. Excelling at my endeavors has given me the skills needed to inspire and motivate each student athlete in order to help them reach their full potential. I believe intrinsic motivation and perseverance are two of the most important qualities a team must have in order to be successful.
I am certain that my passion, enthusiasm, ability to relate to people on and off the tennis court plus my experience playing at a high level, will help me transition from being a great player into an even better coach.
I am well respected by my peers in the tennis world, having been in a leadership role on the player council for 6 years and being on tour for 22 years. I have a huge network and am multi-lingual, which will be my weapon in recruiting elite female student-athletes. Not just that, but being born in South Africa and becoming a US Citizen definitely gives me the edge on understanding the foreign and American mindset.
I am extremely driven. I give everything I have. I don’t like losing. I won’t ever give up and I will get to where I said I would! Doing this in a team ten-folds the experience and that’s why Billie Jean and I thrive in teams!
Thank you for taking the time to consider my application. I will follow-up with you by email to address any questions regarding my application. In the interim, if you have any questions or need more information please feel free to contact me at 281-2509985 as I would welcome the opportunity to further discuss my interest and your goals for the Head Women’s Tennis Coaching Position.
