It is with eager anticipation that I, Margaret Clark, write this letter to you at [Company Name]. Eager, in that I would relish the opportunity to meet with you as soon as possible. The anticipation has everything to do with the fact that the position of security officer includes everything I look for in a job.
I’m confident that I can meet, and even exceed, the expectations you have on your new security officer.
The way I see it, there are several factors that suggest that I am the right person to contribute to your continued success.
First of all, my previous work experience has given me a stable foundation to build on when it comes to working in surveillance and responding to alarms. My job as a security guard has been particularly important when it comes to developing the skills necessary to succeed as a security officer.
I also believe that my expertise and educational background are well in line with what you are looking for. I have, for instance, taken several courses in first aid and self-defense. I also always make sure to stay up to date when it comes to new information and developments that affect my job.
Experience and knowledge are important aspects, but they tend to pale in comparison to having the right personal qualities. I am often described as decisive, communicative and secure – traits that I believe are all important to succeeding as security officer.
It is now time for me to stop writing and start hoping that I will get the chance to meet your team at [Company Name], so that we can get to know each other better and talk further about how we can work together to secure your continued success.
