Dear Mr. Douglas,

I found your name using Southwest Minnesota State University’s Regional Networking Link. I was very excited to see a fellow Mustang marketing for ABCD Foundation. I was hoping to meet with you to ask your advice as I plan my next steps in my career path.

This coming May I will graduate from SMSU with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Marketing. As a student I work for Southwest Marketing Advisory Council (SMAC) which is an organization on campus that pursues actual marketing research projects for various local governmental and commercial organizations. This job has given me hands on experience in the marketing research and analysis field. This past summer I also interned at the Anywhere United Way. I was in charge of creating all the promotional materials for their annual WomenUnite philanthropy event. I really enjoyed this experience and would like to pursue work in the non-profit area. I would like to talk with you about your perspective on this field.

I understand you are very busy. I would appreciate 20 to 30 minutes of your time at your convenience. I will phone you on Wednesday to see if we can arrange a meeting. If you would like to contact me before that time I can be reached at 507-822-3456 or at
