Dear Mr. Venton:
Thank you for speaking with me on the phone yesterday regarding the position of Trapeze Artist with Venton Bros. Circus. Per our discussion, I have enclosed my resume and a letter of reference. As you can see, my reference is quite familiar with my prior circus performances.
I have been exposed to many of the major carnivals throughout the country and have significant experience in acrobatics and tumbling. As I mentioned on the phone, I have traveled with three carnivals and spent two years with a very popular circus in the Mid-West.
This provided me with the opportunity to hone my skills as a Trapeze Artist over the past five years and I believe I have the skills necessary to perform full time with your circus. I will be relocating to the East Coast this summer and am eager to join an attraction with such an exciting history.
I will be in Pittsburgh as of July 1st, and will be available to meet with you thereafter. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
