Dear Ms. Janet Ford,
Upon seeing the advertisement for an Aquarist listed with Mystic Aquarium, I became very excited because I see it as a great opportunity to advance my career in this field.
I have been looking for a position such as this for several years and I believe that I am fully qualified to handle this one because I meet or exceed all of the requirements listed in the advertisement. Marine life has always fascinated me and that is why I choose to make a career out of caring for these amazing creatures.
I have experience working as an Aquarist with a small-scale aquarium exhibit and while I do enjoy my job here, I would like to move into a position with more responsibility such as the one being offered by your company.
My experience includes cleaning tanks, controlling the water temperature and PH levels based on the needs of the different species. I also know how to prepare food for the different species and I can follow a dietary plan to make sure all marine creatures are being fed accordingly.
I have the ability to perform my duties without supervision but I can work in a group setting and get along well with others. I have some experience working with the public and giving presentations to guests that are viewing the marine life. I enjoy the opportunity to help educate them about the different species.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to arrange a meeting where we can talk more about this position and my qualifications. I would love an opportunity to view your facility.
