Dear Mr. Smith:
This letter is to express my sincere interest in the Logistics Manager position with the Transportation
Resources Corporation (position #12345). I reviewed the posting for this job on ASU’s Sun Devil
CareerLink. I am very excited about the prospects of this position and feel that my education and
experience make me a well qualified candidate.
I am currently a full-time student at Arizona State University (ASU) in Tempe, Arizona. I am scheduled to
graduate in May 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Supply Chain Management. In addition to
maintaining a 3.75 cumulative GPA in a challenging academic program, I have been fortunate to
participate in several supply chain and logistics research projects. Most recently, in my capstone
business course, I worked on a student team to evaluate the supply chain flows of corporations in the
airline industry. As a team, we presented comprehensive results and recommendations to our peers
and a group of Supply Chain Faculty.
I am currently participating as a Logistics Intern with bigbox.com. This experience has helped me in
terms of applying my education in practical business environments. In this position I have been given
responsibility for scheduling front line staff in the Tempe office. While challenging, I really enjoy the
process of determining what types of resources are needed to fulfill daily shipping and receiving
requirement. In the spring semester I am scheduled to present about my experience at bigbox.com to
the Supply Chain Management Association student organization at ASU.
Thank you for taking the time to review my application. I look forward to hopefully meeting with you in
