Dear Dr. Smith,
As an experienced senior-level lab technician in a gas chromatograph lab, I will bring the needed skills and expertise to your lab that your company is seeking. After more than 20 years with Lab Testing, Inc., I’ve decided that it’s time to seek new challenges and responsibilities.
Throughout my career, I have supervised and conducted thousands of tests, drafted and presented hundreds of reports, and trained numerous personnel on the proper use and maintenance of gas chromatographs, X-ray diffraction units, carbon sulfur analyzers, a microactivities unit, and a mercury porsimeter, along with other lab equipment. With careful planning and attention to detail, we have maintained a very high level of safety, expedited testing procedures to meet deadlines, and improved the accuracy of tests performed. I also have a thorough knowledge of chemistry and assisted with the compilation and editing of a procedures manual for two commonly performed lab tests.
In addition to my lab management responsibilities, I have held leadership and management-level positions in a volunteer capacity with many local nonprofit organizations and institutions. I am ready to take my skills and experience to the next level and believe that Company USA is just the place to take that step.
I will follow up with you by June 1 to confirm that you received my information and also to answer any questions you may have at that time. Should you wish to contact me sooner, it’s best to reach me either at home, 410-555-5555, or work, 410-555-6555, or through e-mail at email@example.com.
Thank you for your time and consideration for this position.
