Dear Mr. Davis,
I saw your listing for an Environmental Technician on www.dice.com, and extend my resume today for your consideration.
I have specialized experience in this work. For the past six years, I have been involved in performing laboratory and field tests, monitoring of environmental conditions, and analysis of pollution variables. I also have a degree in Environmental Science. I have the ability to work in a lab environment for long hours, on my own, as well as with a team of dedicated environmental scientists and staff. I also make sure to keep current in all studies, by participating in routine conferences and classes.
I hope that you consider this letter and my resume, and then, give me a call immediately to discuss the position and what benefits I might bring it. My phone number is: (555)-555-5555, and I look forward to hearing from you at your convenience.
