Watermen's Museum

I volunteered at the Museum for 3 years, helping with their summer camp. I set up the camp in the morning and made sure it ran smoothly mostly by making sure there was enough of certain items that they needed.

To Whom It May Concern,

Video games are the new billion dollar industry. They provide entertainment in new ways that have never been thought of before, telling new stories and introducing new ways to play. I am here to apply for a game design position at your company.

I have adequate knowledge about video games, since I have been playing video games since I was six years old. I am very passionate about games, and I believe that I can be a huge help to the team with new ideas. I want to be a team player but also have peers that respect and listen to my ideas and give me helpful advice. I also have an interest in writing, which means I could write the story of the game to make it easier on everyone working on the game.

I would very much like to setup an interview with you. I will also prefer to call the people who hired me to personally thank them, so if you could please send me their numbers, I would be very grateful. Thank you so much for this opportunity.

Sincerely yours,

Your handwritten signature
