Dear Mr. Rosales,
This letter is in response to your current ad running in the Tacoma News Tribune for the Grant Writer opening at your college. I feel that my experience and skills fit in well with your requirements and I have attached my resume for your convenience to apply for this position. I know that grants are a large part of the working capital of any college and I would bring in those needed funds if considered for this position.
I have been writing grants in this industry for more than sixteen years now and know that one that is well written is more effective than a poorly written one. My verbal and written skills are top notch and I bring an enthusiasm to each and every project I am working on. I have a deep understanding of this industry which makes me the perfect candidate as there is no background that needs to be done to get me on task.
I know that I will bring a great presence to this college and that I would be a valued member of the team at your college. I feel that it would benefit both of us to sit down and discuss your needs for a grant writer and how I can fill those needs. I can be reached at (555)-555-5555 or emailed at [email]
