Dear Mr Albert,
 

I am writing to apply for the position of Advertising Account Executive with Jamble Advertising, as advertised in B and T Magazine on the 30th April 2009.

With 3 years’ experience as an Account Executive with Follyfax, I have managed the successful integrated marketing campaigns of 23 clients. I have created innovative and publicity attracting campaigns that span print, TV, online and radio.

I have excellent relationships with every member of the creative and financial teams, and my briefs are clear and comprehensive. My real strength is in unifying the different contributors to the campaign, including clients, creative, financial and media agencies in order to ensure that the campaign is tracked thoroughly from concept to the final presentation. I understand that I am only as successful as my recent campaign results.

My key strengths are in time management and prioritisation, internal and external stakeholder management, budgetary reports and financial administration and creative briefs. At Follyfax, my daily responsibilities include meeting and liaising with clients; working with agency colleagues to devise or track campaigns according to brief and budget; presenting campaign ideas and budget to the client; managing campaign costs and invoicing clients; monitoring campaign effectiveness; and making pitches to clients to win their advertising contracts.

I have advanced knowledge of market research and analysis, having graduated with a Bachelor of Communication (Advertising) from Charles Sturt University in 2005. My four-week internship with Follyfax lead to a full-time position once I graduated and I feel that I am ready to advance to an agency that handles international accounts. I am also impressed by the numerous the size and nature of the brands that you manage, including the recent “I Love My Cola” campaign.

My resume details my campaigns and their impressive results. I have also attached two client testimonials, which detail my responsiveness and excellent stakeholder liaison skills.

I encourage you to contact me regarding my application.

 
Yours sincerely
