Dear Sir or Madam:
I would like to express my great excitement in the Director position that was recently posted on Indeed. My marketing skills and experience, combined with my lifelong passion for fitness, make me the ideal candidate for the position.
For the past year I worked in the marketing department at Fab.com in New York where our teamâ€™s initiatives led the company to become the fastest growing e-commerce web site in the world. We grew sales by over 600% and drove 2012 revenue over $100m. As a member of this team I gained experience in cutting edge strategy in the realms of online marketing, customer retention, public relations and social media marketing amongst others.
Prior to Fab I received a masters degree from Columbia, and at age 24 managed a US congressional campaign. I was the youngest campaign manager in the country, and managed a budget of $700,000 and a 175-person team of employees, consultants and volunteers. In this role I was also responsible for directing all of our online marketing and outreach operations. Under my leadership the campaign raised nearly seven times the funds our predecessor raised and also set records in fundraising, online traffic and voter turnout.
My former employer referred to me as his 24-hour Swiss Army Knife because of the dedication and adaptability I had to complete any and every task, day or night. This moniker exemplifies the spirit of commitment I would bring. It would be an absolute privilege to work for the organization and I welcome the opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you further. Thank you for your consideration.
