"My long range objective is to be a director within your organization. I am constantly looking to improve myself professionally and personally and would welcome the opportunity to do that for your organization."

I love that you guys promote heavily from within and I look forward to the opportunity to rise through the ranks of the organization into an executive role."

Share what promotions you hope to eventually receive and discuss what you hope to learn from being a part of their organization.
