Dear Ms. Cook,

Marianne Perkins, one of the German interpreters for the State Department, recommended that I contact you regarding an opening for a French interpreter. I am therefore enclosing my resume and some letters of reference for your review.

As you can see from my resume, both my personal and my professional background have given me excellent qualifications for interpreting:

  • I learned French and English simultaneously from earliest childhood;
  • My B.A. degree was in French Language and History; and
  • I have traveled extensively in French-speaking countries.

Also, the enclosed letter of reference from Al Knox, my current manager, indicates that he considers my performance for Pugh Interpreters to be exemplary.

The reason I am so interested in a position with the State Department is that travel is frequently involved, and travelling is “in my blood.”

I hope that you will seriously consider this application for the French interpreter position, and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Respectfully yours,

Martha Klingman
