Dear Mr. Smith:
The accompanying resume is in response to your listing in the Chicago Tribune for a security officer.
I am especially interested in this position because my experience
as a senior security professional in the Army has prepared me for a
disciplined, secure work environment and the challenges associated with
unexpected events. I’m looking forward to using this experience for
enhancing the security of a growing and community-conscious bank.
I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to discuss how
my experience will best meet your needs. My ideas on how to improve
your bank’s security posture may be of particular interest to you.
Therefore, I will call your office on the morning of March 17 to
inquire if a meeting can be scheduled at a convenient time.
I look forward to meeting you.
