Anatomy of a ‘perfect’ application LINKEDOUT: The job you want from the place you are Lydia Wallbaum SUBJECT LINE: Linda Belcher applying for Project Manager Good morning, Mr. Fishodor I wanted to take this opportunity to express my enthusiasm for the Project Manager position. I've spent time reading through the website and all of the fantastic work I’ve seen from the team, and as a huge Arrested Development fan, I was especially excited to find your Recurring Development microsite. I can’t even imagine all the research that went into that site! Instead of typing out why I’m best qualified to be your next Project Manager, I’ve created a personal video that explains the value I could bring to Beutler Ink: Let’s Work Together In short, here are the main reasons you should hire me: ● I would be a dynamic contributor to the team because I have previous experience coordinating distributed teams ● I have built and maintained close relationships as the main point of contact with clients such as Bob’s Burgers Restaurant and Fresh Feed Grocery ● I really dig your company culture Please allow me the opportunity to speak with you further and show you that my background has prepared me for the challenges this position brings and will allow me to be an asset to the team and an exceptional Project Manager. My resume and work samples are attached for your perusal. Let me know about next steps and if we can schedule an interview in the next couple of weeks.
