This is a letter you can use when someone has referred you to a job in the convention industry. Remember being referred is always a good way to get in, someone actually believes in you enough to attach their name to yours. You want to be able to deliver on their faith in you and do things right. First step is to make sure your cover letter is concise and to the point. Once you meet with the person, there will always be time to expand on what you can do for them.
It starts with your name and your address, followed by the name of the person you are contacting. Open the letter with the name of the person who recommended you (including the name of the person who referred you enforces your worth) and then tell them what you are good at. Tell them why you think you will be a good fit for convention industry.
