Dear [Hiring Agent Name],
I am currently seeking a challenging career opportunity in a (INSERT TITLE OF TARGET POSITION) capacity and am submitting my resume for your review. In advance, thank you for your time and consideration. As demonstrated in the accompanying resume, my professional qualifications include the following accomplishments:
In May of 2016, I graduated with a Master s Degree in Sports Management. The year prior, I earned a Post-Graduate Certificate in Athletic Administration. I hope to leverage these by securing an Athletic Director role with an education or community focus.
While engaged in my degree studies full-time, I still continued to work full-time job and held leadership positions with local civic organizations, thus exhibiting an innate ability to multitask and manage time effectively.
My formal education is paired with a noteworthy practical background that includes working as a small business owner for over 10 years in the sports and fitness industry. I owned and operated two martial arts and fitness centers, both as a part of a larger franchise. I also owned two separate, self-established Lamkins Martial Arts and Fitness locations.
For four years, I worked public education with students of varying ages. I taught social studies classes at the Middle School, High School, and Adult Education levels. I also served as a Staff Advisor and Coach for extracurricular activities including Student Government, Civil Rights, Varsity Football and Swimming clubs and teams. This will prepare me well for an opportunity to work with these populations as an Athletic Director.
Additionally, I ve excelled in the public event management, live entertainment event planning and production arenas. For 10 years, I worked a successful mobile DJ, starting as an apprentice with some of New York s top players in the business. As a partner of Maine Event Entertainment, I have planned, promoted and produced a variety of large-scale private and public engagements, many of which include sporting events.
Furthermore, I have vast experience in coaching and serving as an athlete in the areas of football, boxing and MMA, with my playing the sport falling at the semi-pro level. This diverse, yet highly related background makes me an ideal candidate for an athletics leadership opportunity that will allow me to continue growing professionally.
As an employee, you will find me to be a driven team player committed to supporting you in achieving your objectives through superior performance. I am confident that I could be a valuable asset to your organization, and look forward to interviewing with you in the near future.
