Dear Hiring Manager,

I would like to introduce myself as an applicant for the Event Manager position at Cloud Clearwater. As a high-energy, experienced professional with an eye for detail, I firmly believe that I can provide Cloud Clearwater with outstanding event management services.

My previous role as Event Manager at Crane & Jenkins included responsibilities like managing the event staff, coordinating the details of weddings, conferences, birthday parties, and charity events, hiring and training new staff, making budgets, booking venues, setting up decorations, and organizing catering. All of these responsibilities gave me valuable experience in all of the areas of event planning. I was determined to become an expert in each aspect of the job. It was very rewarding to see everything come together on the day of the event and the clients having a great time at their party.

I first became interested in event planning when my mother decided to remarry. All of her friends tried to talk her out of having a wedding at all, but I encouraged her to plan a special ceremony. Since no one else wanted to help her plan the wedding, I took up the role as her personal wedding planner. I was only 21, but in just a few short months, I planned an entire wedding for my mother and executed it beautifully.

Thank you for your time and consideration of my application. I anticipate learning more about Cloud Clearwater and its clients. I am confident that my experience and love for event planning will prove me to be an excellent fit for the Event Manager position at Cloud Clearwater.

“Dear Ms. Dionne Bertram,

I am applying for an Event Management position and I have the skills and experience needed to handle all of your events efficiently.

While earning a bachelor’s degree from Central Michigan University, I worked as an assistant manager for an events planning company. During this time, I learned how unpredictable this type of work can be and how important it is to be flexible and resourceful. Sometimes, you need to think outside the box and above all else, it is important to remain calm and focused when under pressure, so you can resolve the issue quickly.

I have excellent time management skills with the ability to schedule and coordinate the staff throughout the entire project. I also have strong communication and people skills with the ability to address the staff in an efficient but respectful manner and to accept criticism as a way to make improvements. I have also learned that every job is vital to the success of the company and that the staff will often have ideas and suggestions that can greatly improve production.

I pay close attention to detail and possess excellent organization skills with the ability to handle multiple responsibilities efficiently. I also have CPR and first aid training in the event of an emergency along with the ability to obtain the proper license and permit needed for each event. I am passionate about my work and have a real desire to provide excellent service that meet or exceed the expectations of the clients.

Please call (555)-555-5555 if your company is in need of someone with my qualifications.

Dear Mr. Rivera, 

I would like to introduce myself as an applicant for the Event Manager position at AMusic. As someone who has strong organizational skills and has a flair for making things happen, I thrive on delivering excellence. With more than 2 years of experience as an event manager assistant, I’m excited about advancing my career with AMusic. 

In the job ad, it says that you’re looking for an event manager with superior organizational skills, attention to detail and an ability to anticipate needs, someone who is flexible and open to changing priorities and managing multiple tasks simultaneously within compressed timeframes. During my employment at Entertron, as an event manager assistant, I quickly learned how to troubleshoot and solve problems as well as plan the logistics, and execution of all details for various entertainment events: concerts, trade shows, and stand-up comedy shows (350+ attendees). I was responsible for generating over $15,000 in additional revenue while assisting in the planning and management of over 70 events.

I’ve attended dozens of events organized by your agency, and I’ve always dreamed of being a part of such special music projects. Joining a world-class entertainment company and playing a role in creating live music events would be a dream come true.

Could you make time for a phone call or in-person chat to allow me to discuss my organizational and project management skills and how they could be valuable to your upcoming objectives?
