Mr. Ricardo Zen,
257, Park Avenue South,
New York, NY 12345-6789.
Dear Mr. Zen
I am writing in response to your ad in the New York Times for a position listed as Science Editorial. I believe my broad-based scientific knowledge and writing skills make me an excellent candidate for this position.
My education includes a B.S. in botany & zoology with honors, and two years of medical school. Through these studies, I have gained in-depth knowledge of many scientific subjects which include biology, chemistry, anatomy, physiology, and genetics. As an advanced placement English student, a participant in university interscholastic league writing contests, and the daughter of an English teacher, I have a good working knowledge of English as well as strong writing skills. Currently, I am enrolled in a technical communications course to further augment my writing skills.
Concerning my related experience, I have been employed as a Science Consultant and Technical Writer for Regional Schools. In that position, I was the sole writer on scientific subjects (life and earth sciences) for a project involving development of software for Children’s Encyclopedia on CD-ROM. My teaching experience includes tutoring medical and nursing students in human anatomy, physiology, and histology. Positions working in the medical field have allowed me to develop superior interpersonal skills.
I plan to use my employment in the medical field and my technical writing experience to find full-time employment as a writer on technical subjects and more fully utilize my scientific knowledge. I will also continue evening coursework in technical communications and desktop publishing.
Enclosed is a resume that provides more detail about my background. I am excited by an opportunity such as the one you advertised, and I believe I would be a creative and energetic asset to National Schools. I can be contacted at 123 122 24.
