Dear Hiring Manager,

Sometimes, I flashback to when I was a 10-year-old planning and executing tea parties for my dolls in a princess dresses. In fact, that’s how I know I would be a great addition to the Crane & Jenkins team! I’m thrilled to be applying for the Event Planner position at Crane & Jenkins. I believe my attention to detail paired with my sense of creativity and a positive spirit makes me the ideal candidate for your Event Planner opening.

While working as the Assistant to the Event Planner for Cloud Clearwater, I have aided the Event Planner with everything from testing color swatches to arranging guest lists and making late-night pots of coffee to keep us going right before the “Big Event.” At Cloud Clearwater, we aim to curate the best events possible no matter the size, and I, along with the Event Planner, spend hours on end ensuring our clients’ dream events go over without a hitch.

Over the past six months at Cloud Clearwater, I have spearheaded the planning and execution of three large events and two small events while still assisting the Event Manager as she oversees the planning for our larger clients. My time at Cloud Clearwater has been eye-opening, and it has given me precious insight that I am confident I will be able to extend to the Event Planner position at Crane & Jenkins.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I’m certain my unique point of view, meticulousness and ability to work under pressure will make me an asset to your team. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about the Event Planner opening. I can be reached at either or (123) 456-7891.

“Hi John Wolfe,

My former colleague, Mitch Mikes told me that Might Event Agencies is hiring for a full-time event manager position. My years of being an event planner, photographer, and assistant manager at a wedding planning company make me believe I should be a good fit for this role. Allow me to elaborate… 

I’ve been active in the events industry for the last eight years: 

  • Organized over 80 conferences (for 350+ attendees on average)
  • Held 100+ corporate events for companies in the Greater Philadelphia area (plus 12 offsites abroad)
  • Put together over 80 weddings during my time as a wedding planner in the mid-2010s

In each case, I’ve been in charge of venue books, vendor sourcing, on-site supervision, and even securing publicity (on some occasions). In my contact book, I have over 200 battle-tested vendors – ranging from caterers and cleaners to musicians and circus troops (not joking). 

You will also find that my business acumen, as well as my financial management skills, line up well with what is described in the job listing. I take pride in keeping 95% of my events within the set initial budget and can negotiate highly attractive rates through my vast personal network. For budget-conscious clients, I always find ways to host a fabulously frugal event. 

Because of my great communication skills and attention-to-details, my customer satisfaction rating remained at 98% among my freelance clients. You can check the testimonials on my personal website. 

Along with this letter, you will find a copy of my resume, as well as my contact information. Thank you for your consideration and let’s be in touch!
