Dear Mr. Brode,
I am very interested in joining your team of skilled Archeologists at Parsons Brinckerhoff, and this is why I have written this cover letter and attached my resume for your consideration. I saw your advertisement on www.jobserve.com and have been excited to apply ever since.
Having worked for Pinnacle for the last six years as an Archeologist in their research lab department, I have more than a well developed command of all processes and tools that you have specified in your open position requirements. I am well versed in all aspects of your Archeologist findings and projects, as well as how they relate to the particular time periods that you specialize in. I am a problem solver, research minded, and analytically minded by trade. I look to bring this-along with my enthusiasm to your exciting position.
Please give me a call at (555)-555-5555 to set up an interview. I am very eager to meet you in person and look forward to hearing from you.
Resume Attached as MS Word Document
