  1. 2. RE: Opportunity within your organization   To whom it may concern: I am very interested to discuss possible opportunities within your organization. I think my background enables me to quickly adapt and help any design company. I am eager to consider new challenges. My resume is enclosed for your review. After over 21 years in the design industry, I have a thorough understanding of every aspect of the design industry. My design experiences range from Interior Retail/Residential Design, Graphic Design, Tradeshow/Exhibit Design, Kitchen /Bath Design as well as having owned my own cleaning company, and design showroom. My most recent employer was very happy with my performance, but has decided to close the particular location therefore eliminating my position. If you are seeking a talented individual who stays abreast of her field, who understands attention to detail, excellent skills in design, the ability to form a strong personal bond with clients and who is career-committed as it takes to achieve total success, then please consider what I have to offer. I would be happy to have a preliminary discussion with you or members of your team to see if we can establish a mutual interest. Thank you for your attention to these materials. I certainly look forward to exploring this further.   Very Truly Yours,   Laura Devlin 3 JFK Memorial Drive Millbury, MA 01527 508-868-6246 [email_address] Enclosure
