I am applying for the position of Assistant Professor of English at the American University of Beirut. Since the position, which was advertised in the Chronicle of Higher Education, requires some teaching at Université Saint Joseph, I am sending a set of my credentials to you and to representatives of the respective institutions. This is a particularly exciting position as I would be able to use my knowledge of Arabic and French, which would enhance the effectiveness of my English language instruction.
As my enclosed curriculum vitae indicates, I received a Ph.D., magna cum laude, with a major in English and Linguistics, from Yale University in 1994. Prior to that, I obtained a B.A., magna cum laude, in French, and an M.A., summa cum laude, in French Literature from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Moreover, during my Fulbright Scholarship for the study of French literature at the Sorbonne, I read extensively the works of writers from Algeria, Tunis, Martinique, and other Francophone countries.
The paramount experience that has influenced my decision to apply for this position, however, was a three-year teaching position at Mohammed V University in Morocco. Not only did I teach English, but I also developed an innovative program in Arabic using computer-assisted pedagogy. It was recognized as a major breakthrough in Arabic language instruction.
During the week of 18 February, I plan to be in Washington, D.C., and would like to arrange an interview with you at your convenience. I will telephone you next week to arrange that meeting. Please feel free to call me at 216/555-8209 or fax me at 216/555-8210.
Thank you for your consideration. I remain

Dear Ms. Jones:
I am highly interested in the co-op position offered by your company for the fall. My interest in mechanical engineering lies in design, and I understand that XYZ Corporation offers excellent opportunities for students to gain such experience. I currently possess a 3.78 grade point average at Georgia Tech and am willing to learn any new skills or software applications that will assist me in doing my job.
I feel I can make a positive contribution to your company. I have developed leadership skills through high school football and by serving as President of Volunteer F/X, a student organization at Georgia Tech. Being an honorary football captain taught me the importance of working as part of a team and gave me the opportunity to lead others. My role in Volunteer F/X has allowed me to coordinate numerous projects, and working at Wal-Mart this summer has helped me to learn customer service skills.
My resume and transcript are attached. I appreciate your consideration of my credentials. If I can provide you with additional information, please let me know. You can reach me by email at gtXXXXX@prism.gatech.edu or by phone at (XXX) XXX-XXXX. I look forward to discussing my qualifications with you in person.
