Mr. Lloyd Meyers
Assistant Director of Marketing
South Alabama Athletics Marketing Department

Mobile, AL 36608

Dear Mr. Meyers,


It was pleasing to be notified of an opening internship opportunity with the South Alabama
Athletics Marketing Department. As you will see in the attached resume, I am a Strategic
Communication major looking to build and gain experience in public relations and marketing.
I am accustomed to fast-paced environments where deadlines are a priority and handling multiple
jobs is the norm. I enjoy challenges and I can assure you that I can learn fast and work hard to
achieve your departments goals.
In the fall of 2015, I took the Introduction to Strategic Communication class, which focused on
theories, concepts, and applications of the advertising and public relations fields. The class
provided the process of marketing products, ideas, and people to:

Build the brands.


Create and sustain positive relationships.
Solve problems to advance the interests of brands and organizations.

The lessons that I have learned from the classes that I have taken will support the goals and
objectives of the South Alabama Athletics Marketing Department. I have enclosed my resume
along with my cover letter. I look forward to the chance to meet and discuss the roles and plans of
this internship during the interview session. Thank you for considering this application for the
internship and I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Jordan Heard
