I am "applying"(practicing writing resumes in english) for a leadership position at a local non profit and I am writing my cover letter, expressing why I want to serve as a president or marketing director. Though this is my first time taking on an exec position role for an organization, I still want to sound convincing. Is there a quote/common saying/theme that involves something like- every one deserves a chance, every one starts somewhere etc.?

I already have my cover letter written, just need a quote/theme to conclude it all. Thanks!

  1. I think you're barking up the wrong tree.

    The employer doesn't give a darn about whether you deserve a chance. The employer wants to know what you can do for his/her company.

  2. Ms. Sue is right.

    In addition, it's really rare for someone to start at the top! To apply for a position as "president or marketing director"? Those are positions that people work to up from inside a company, for the most part.

  3. No matter what position you're applying for, you must sell yourself, as Ms. Sue says, as to what you an do FOR that organization. Know the organization and know what you can bring to the table to enhance its operations and mission.

  4. Ok, thank you for the guidance. It's just that I am writing from the perspective of someone who has very limited experience with working in an exec position for an organization. If I really wanted this position how could I sell myself? Any examples?
