Dear Ms. Ybarra,
I am applying for the Customs Officer position with Schenker, Inc. and I hope that you will consider me a worthy candidate for this job.
Working for The Department of Homeland Security and helping to regulate the flow of traffic entering and exiting the county is something that I have been working towards for several years. I believe that I have the skills and training needed to fill this position and I know that I can pass the background checks required for this job.
I have a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and my studies included criminal investigations, criminology and criminal law. I am familiar with using computers on a regular basis and I have experience using a variety of databases to access information. I also have experience using radiation detectors and x-ray machines.
I have the training needed to execute searches along with the good judgment and communication skills needed to ensure I never violate anyone’s rights while performing the search. I am very perceptive and pay close attention to detail, which is vital to notice the little things that can indicate there is a problem.
I have the ability to stay calm and respond professionally when things take a turn for the worse and the physical stamina and strength to endure long hours on the job. I also have the training and ability to handle and use firearms in a safe and controlled manner. I am fully prepared for this position and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
You can contact me by calling (555)-555-5555.
