We volunteered to start, using market research as her desired career for the sake of this letter. Her draft utilized a format that is easy to modify when so desired and easy to read as well:


Our draft - why you should interview me - paragraph


There are a number of skills I can contribute to your firrn.


Research - My research and recommendations were utilized by a local advocacy group designing its appeal to the general public.


Analyzing - Analyzed demographic / voting pattern data to determine best approach to specific constituencies.


Presentation - Used self-made graphs and diagrams to make oral presentations in both classroom and other settings.


Computers - Experienced in using computer packages as a research, analytical and graphic-making tool


The members looked over this draft and asked her some questions.


Could you tell us why you chose that particular format? Somehow I was expecting a regular paragraph.


There are several reasons. First, it encourages the reader's eyes to fall on the skills I have to offer. Second, this format makes changes easy, at least in a mechanical sense. Third, it's easier to type than a regular paragraph, although with a word processor that may not be a big issue.


He could have added a fourth reason. It may be a better format for computer scanning.


How did you choose which of your positive characteristics to include?


The subject of this paragraph is "why you should interview me." I looked at the chart of skills needed in market research. First, I identified needed skills where I felt the strongest. If I had a strong example to support the skill, I used it. If my examples were weak, I didn't. Then I realized that some of the skills overlap, for example, "Presentations" and "Making Diagrams." In a case like that, I was able to cover both skills with one sentence.


I understand how you identified the skills you mentioned, but how did you identify the examples you wanted to use?


I wanted examples from experiences that were as closely related to a professional usage as possible. That's why I wrote about an "advocacy group designing its appeal to the general public," for example.


Do you feel your examples are strong?


My examples are as strong as I can make them Obviously, if I had worked part-time in market research, let's say as an interviewer or data analyst, I would have a stronger example. But that wasn't the case, so I showed where I did utilize skills the field requires.


How did you decide on the order of your positive characteristics?


I had two things to keep in mind. First, what would be the most important characteristic in the eyes of the firm? Second, where did 1 have the strongest example? In this case, research came out first on both counts, since it seems to be the core of the job.
