Mr. Paul Phillips
Healthy You Fitness, Inc.
3346 Main Street
Dustin, CO 33404
Dear Mr. Phillips,
I have been interested in working for Healthy You Fitness for some time now because I consider it the premier fitness training facility in the Denver area. My goal is to work in a highly professional environment where every member is valued and the focus is on helping each person achieve his or her individual fitness goals. I believe I possess the skills and experiences you are looking for in the personal trainers you hire to be a part of your team.
I have recently completed my Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science at Springfield College and have become a certified personal trainer (ACE). Through my internship at HealthTrax I gained confidence in my ability to create and lead group exercise classes and to design individualized fitness programs for members. I initiated a new exercise class entitled Power Up, an upper body strengthening program. I assisted in designing and marketing the class and taught it three times per week. Interest in the class grew by word of mouth and the class size doubled within the first three months. I possess excellent interpersonal skills which allow me to develop positive rapport with members by listening to their needs and concerns, and encouraging them through each stage of their program. My strong communication skills not only impact club members, but colleagues, visitors, and student interns as well.
My studies in Exercise Science have given me a comprehensive understanding of anatomy, kinesiology, management concepts in sport and fitness settings, worksite wellness, fitness assessment and prescription, and stress testing. I have also taken courses related to fitness for special populations including the elderly and the disabled. Through my coursework and fieldwork experiences, I feel very competently trained to work with members of all ages and fitness levels. I enjoy continual learning and will take advantage of educational opportunities to stay current with new trends and research in the Exercise Science field so that I can best serve the membership of Healthy You Fitness.
Thank you for considering me for a position at Healthy You Fitness. As a reliable and energetic new
professional, I will bring strong fitness training skills and a positive attitude to your staff. I will contact you within two weeks to confirm your receipt of my application materials and to learn more about your timeline for hiring. If you wish to reach me you can contact me at (413) 555-5467 or email@example.com. I look forward to the opportunity to interview for this position.

Dr. Gary M. Wells Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools
232 Williams Street, P.O. Box 789
Glastonbury, CT 06033
Dear Dr. Wells,
As a School Counselor I am a firm believer in advocating for students and creating a community atmosphere where children can learn and grow in a supportive environment. While reviewing the Connecticut Education Association website, I learned of the Guidance Counseling position opening in your school district. I am very interested in the current grade 6-school counselor position, and would welcome the opportunity to become an active member of Glastonbury’s developmental guidance program.
Through my School Counseling experience, I have had the opportunity to utilize my education in developmental guidance in working with students, parents, teachers, and administrators as part of a collaborative team. I have been working with children and families for the past nine years. From summer camp counseling, to after-school programs, to practicum experiences, I have found working with children to be an extremely educational and rewarding experience.
One of my key to successes had been my ability to multitask. As a school counselor it is essential to be able to manage several tasks at once. I have demonstrated this trait through many experiences, but one I am particularly proud of is the production of two theatre performances I produced during my practicum. In addition to carrying a full caseload of students, I utilized my teamwork attitude, exceptional organizational and time management skills, and patience to produce two fantastic performances of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Peter Pan.
Given the opportunity to join your team I will bring an optimistic yet realistic attitude with a dedication to student education and success. I feel that the knowledge I have gained from my educational background as well as my experiences working with people will allow me to make a positive contribution to your school. Thank you for reviewing my qualifications. I can be reached at (413) 555-5555 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to interviewing with you.
