Dear system manager in Calgary Public Library:
I am very excited about the shelver position you have available in your public library department. As a grade 11 student at Western Canada High School, I have gained a great deal of knowledge that will enhance your company’s success. I am a reliable employee and a self starter, ready to make outstanding contributions to your work force, as early as next week. I am able to work well under pressure and have the ability to do heavy, repetitive work you desire.
With minimal training, I expect to contribute significantly as a part of your team. I know that you need someone who is enthusiastic and task oriented, and I am uniquely qualified for the job. Some people are great team performers, while others are better working on their own— I am both! My strengths lie in my understanding of the principle behind management and organization, as well as my ability to communicate effectively and willingness to work hard.
My strong computer skills, including Microsoft Word, Excel, and other applications. These would be a considerable assistance in your corporation. As a student juggling multiple projects, I also developed excellent time-management skills and the ability to keep a cool head in high-pressure situations.
As you can see, I am a dynamic person with great interest in your company. My school and extracurricular work have provided me with the skills to be an asset to your business. My volunteer experience bolsters my qualifications. I am recognized for my energy, quick thinking as well as for focusing on maintaining an outstanding team emphasizing customer service.
I would like the chance to meet you in an interview. Being aware of how frantically you desire a library shelver, I will contact you soon to arrange a meeting at your convenience. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me by phone at...
