Dear Ms. Doe:
Your Personnel Job Vacancy Listing is announcing the position of Public Information Specialist in your Department of Public Relations. I am very interested in being considered for this position.
While a student at Gallaudet University, I majored in communication arts and took several courses related to public relations. I also did two internships in the public relations field through our University's co-op internship program. During my internships with the Government of the District of Colombia and with Giant Food, Inc., I answered inquiries about various services and programs and helped research and develop some materials for constituents and consumers.
Enclosed is my resume, which contains more details about my work experience and educational accomplishments.
I am confident that I could contribute valuable ideas and skills to your organization. I would like to arrange an opportunity for us to meet and will contact you within two weeks to set up an interview. Should you or your staff wish to contact me earlier, please call me at (111) 111-1111. Because I am deaf, I suggest that you call me through a relay telephone service. To do this, call (800) 735-2258. The relay agent will answer your call, and call me using teletype equipment (TTY). Then the agent will relay your comments to me, and mine to you. I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing more about my abilities and experience.
