Ms. Candace Hamm
Sales Manager
Irwin Food Processing
Suite 34, 123 Mason Avenue N.E.
Toronto, Ontario
M9L 4V2

Dear Ms. Hamm:

I am a recent graduate of Alpha Beta High School in Mississauga, and I plan to attend university in Toronto this fall. While I was conducting some career research on companies that offer in-house training, I noticed that Irwin Food Processing offers basic courses in marketing and promotions, a field which interests me greatly.

I would appreciate meeting with you to discuss your firm’s potential employment opportunities. In particular, I believe you may be interested in hearing about my co-op work experience, which involved special product promotions. I have enclosed my résumé with further details.

I will call your administrative assistant on May 22, 2012, to see if a convenient appointment time can be arranged. I can also be reached at 905-555-1234, if you would like to contact me before then.

Yours truly,

 

Pascal Jodoin
