Dear Mr. Walters,
I saw your ad on www.monster.com for a Zookeeper at Potter Park Zoo in Southfield, MI. I would love to apply today for this position, and have enclosed my resume.
I am the right person for this Zookeeper position, as I have over seven years of experience in this position at Fresno Chaffee Zoo in Southfield, MI. I also have a Masters Degree in Zoology, and have worked with animals prior to my education as a Veterinarian Receptionist. There isn’t an animal that I am uncomfortable taking care of, and I hope to bring my knowledge, love of animals, and great caretaking skills to your beautiful zoo.
I very much appreciate your posting of this position, and wish that you would contact me at your convenience at (555)-555-5555.
