Dear Mr. Gerry,
I am interested in applying for the Museum Registrar position that I recently noticed posted by your museum. I know that my skills and ability to organize and catalog incoming pieces as well as taking care of the archives and other administrative duties. The best aspect of my qualifications is that I am highly organized which is vital for anyone who wants to be successful in this position.
My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Art and I have over ten years experience working in this field. I am also highly computer literate and have a full knowledge of the database systems that are used to catalog art pieces. There has never been a deadline set for me that I have not met because I do have multitasking skills and can prioritize the tasks that are assigned to me.
It is very important that a museum knows where all the art pieces are located whether they are in storage or on display. This is why I know that I would be the best fit for this position because I have a great memory and can recall the location of every piece catalogued. I feel that a meeting would be in both of our interests. My phone number is (123)-551-6165 and I can be reached at any time.
