Prospect letter
« on: Apr 19, 2015, 11:22 am »
Hi all,

  I'm looking for summer work in ballet and was about to write a prospect letter to send out to some companies I'm interested in and do I write one? Anyone have positive experience sending one that may have suggestions? I'm thinking a quick work experience summary and a little bit of why I want to work with you?

I don't know about ballet specifically (never worked one), but when I was looking for work in a new area I preparred a resume and cover letter that outlined my past experience, skills, and goals for employment. It's good to create a base template you can quickly tweak for sending out to different companies.
