Sample Letter #1

I am responding to your advertisement in the Doe Post inviting applications for a position in chemical engineering. I am currently a research chemist for Johnson Chemical Corporation where I enjoy my work, but I would prefer participating in your research program on new plastics.

I have worked on a number of projects dealing with different polymerization processes and am involved in researching aeronautical applications of polyethylene products. My interest in plastics began at Doe University, where I wrote my graduate thesis on early uses of polyethylene.

I am enclosing my resume and look forward to an opportunity for a personal interview.

Sample Letter #2

Last week I spoke with Jane Doe about the clinical director position at your facility. We both agreed that the job matches perfectly with my goals and qualifications.

I spent six years as clinical coordinator in charge of two 26-bed units at the Springfield facility. In that position I developed two new programs that are now widely used in clinical treatment.

My postgraduate fellowship in clinical research at Springfield University has prepared me to manage the experimental units at the main clinic. The attached resume will provide more details about my experience and education.

I am eager to meet with you to discuss how my qualifications could meet your needs.

Sample Letter #3

I am writing to you in response to your Internet advertisement requesting applicants for the position of Technical Writer in Springfield University's archaeology laboratory. I hold bachelor's degrees in archaeology and English and have three seasons' experience in excavation and lab work, including data entry, artifact cataloging, and preparations for the various methods of artifact dating. In addition, I wrote the chapter detailing survey methods for Dr. John Doe's "Final Report on the Centerville Field School Project." This work involved transcribing the field notes onto Laboratory of Anthropology forms, mapping and recording sites by section, township, and province, as well as creating a narrative description of the project's survey methods.

The years spent in the English department have prepared me for the challenges of writing for a variety of readers, and much of my creative writing has been published. Also, under the guidance of Dr. Doe I have directed my efforts within archaeology toward writing. Archaeology needs writers to make it interesting, especially in this time of budget cuts and battles over land use.

I believe I would qualify as "proficient" in the use of most of the popular spreadsheet programs and other relevant computer applications. I have spent several months entering data and crunching numbers in the service of archaeology.

Please see the attached resume for further details of my qualifications. I will gladly provide references at your request. I can be reached at 555-5555. I look forward to meeting you in person and discussing my suitability for this position.
