To Whom It May Concern,

I'm responding to the recent job posting on the Blogger website for the marketing communications manager position. After reviewing the responsibilities associated with the position and the requisite qualifications, I feel I possess both the relative work experience and education necessary to make me a strong candidate.

I am currently working as the public affairs coordinator for the Irrigation Association, a national association recognized as the authority on irrigation. My current position requires me to perform many of the same functions outlined in your job description.

I also possess a passion for innovative medical strategies like infusion therapy. It is in this passion that that I found the NHIA website, and ultimately this job listing. The work that the NHIA promotes is thing short of incredible, and to have the opportunity to help drive this mission through various marketing efforts would be as fulfilling a job as I can conceivably imagine. NHIA has found a way to mix two passions of mine into one fluid entity, and if given this opportunity, I know that I would thrive.

I’ve attached a copy of my resume per your request. I welcome the opportunity to meet with you in person to further present my qualifications and answer any questions you might have. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sean - I think your best bet would be to send this to; I doubt NHIA is monitoring this space, and they wouldn't know how to contact you even if the were.
