To the hiring Manager at GSD&M: I'd really like to work for you guys.

Dear GSD&M,

I've admired you from afar for sometime now. Your creative work, your company culture, your location; it's all a young ad student could ever ask for. I write you today in the hopes of securing an interview, and God willing, an internship. We really have a lot in common, and I think I'd fit right in.

I'm a firm believer that only those who enjoy what they do become masters. I want to intern for GSD&M because I want to work for a company which not only produces superior advertising, but a company that has the kind of culture that makes you love your job, in a way that only an ad agency can do. GSD&M does that better than any other company, and we share the same values there. I work hard to make sure my creative material is the best it can be, but I also work hard to make the community around me one worth being a part of.

I've also got great experience. I'm in my last year of school before getting my Advertising degree, I've worked as a graphic designer for UNT for over two years, and I've been freelancing for about one. I've done work in existing brand-styles, I've helped develop new identities for start-ups, and I've navigated the interpersonal challenges that come with creative work. I work with all my clients directly, and I've learned to speak their language. In an industry where creatives can be hard to work with, I want to be one who is known for being a pleasure to work with.

I hope you'll take a look at resume and portfolio, and I hope my letter has convinced you I'm worth an interview. I'll be looking forward to hearing from you.

All the best.
