Dear Ms. Doe,
I am currently a junior at Tulane University and am interested in pursuing a career in public
relations. The Alumni Coordinator in the Tulane Career Center gave me your name as a
person who is willing to discuss your career in public relations.
My activities at Tulane include acting as the Chair of the Public Relations Committee for
“Direction,” a Tulane symposium of national speakers. This experience has increased my
interest in public relations, and I am planning to seek a summer internship in order to gain
As the Vice President of Public Relations for a large hotel chain, your career path is of
interest to me. I would like to speak with you about your ideas on the profession, in addition
to summer opportunities which might be worthwhile for a student with my career interest.
I will contact you by telephone next week to arrange a meeting at your convenience. I have
enclosed my résumé, and would appreciate any feedback you may have for me at this point. I
look forward to talking with you further.
