Dear Mr. Landers,
I am interested in the Urologist opening that was advertised in the St. Paul Star Tribune in Sunday’s edition. Attached is my resume which illustrates my education and residencies in more detail but will be offered in brief in this letter. I think you will find that I have the background that you would like to see in a candidate for this position.
I have graduated from Harvard medical school with honors and completed my internship at a prestigious hospital. Soon after, I completed my residency at the same hospital and continued on there for two more years. I have decided that I am looking for a change in direction but not in career choice. This is why I believe that your medical center is the right location for me.
It is not easy finding openings such as yours which is why I would ask that you consider all of my information when choosing those candidates who you will interview. I know I should be on that list and can be reached at any time by calling (555)-555-5555 in order to schedule a time to meet. I appreciate your time and consideration and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
