Sample Letter #2

I am interested in a position as a technical writer and editor for Doe Electronics. I hope my enclosed resume will be of interest to you.

I graduated from Doe University in 2005 with a major in English and a minor in Electrical Engineering, an admittedly unlikely combination. Still, it has served me well.

I hope to hear from you after you have had a chance to review my resume.

Although you may have a fully staffed sales force at Doe Pharmaceuticals, I believe that my background will interest you. After completing an undergraduate degree in chemistry at Springfield University, I worked in the lab at Springfield Hospital, having frequent contact with staff physicians.

In addition, my position as President of the Springfield Chamber of Commerce has allowed me to use my leadership and sales abilities. Please take a careful look at my resume. I know I could be an asset to your company. Call me at 555-5555, if you would like to know more.
