Dear Mr. Peterson,
From your recent advertisement in the Houston Chronicle, I found a very exciting opportunity in my field and asking for just the amount of experience and knowledge I have. With this in mind, I submit my resume and this cover letter for application for your Roustabout opportunity at ASRC Energy Services.
Briefly, I have worked in the oil rigging business for the past 10 years, with seven years as an experienced Roustabout for Key Energy Services. The career of someone with a Roustabout background is never easy-as you know. It requires an ability to be out to sea, in unfavorable conditions, and constantly maintaining and optimizing the parts and systems integral to an oil rigging experiment. I have fulfilled all of these tasks for the extent of my career, and have done so with the great communications abilities and commitment to the position that is necessary for ongoing success.
I have enclosed a resume, hoping that you ill consider me for this position; and then, give me a call to schedule an interview. I can be reached at (555)-555-5555, and thank you so much for your time.
Resume Attached as MS Word Document
