Dear Mrs. Sullivan,

Your posting on seeking an experienced Correctional Officer for your prison caught my attention. I am qualified, and this is why I am applying today for this opportunity. I have included my resume.

You are looking for a professional with at least four years as a Correctional Officer in a medium security prison. I have five years experience in this role, at Texas Department of Criminal Justice in Fort Worth, TX. My main experience has been in guarding and escorting prisoners from court to jail and in transfers from prison to prison. I am great in stressful situations in which danger is present, and I know how to handle distraught prisoners, as well as break up regular altercations between prison inmates. I work hard, am always on my feet, and have the muscle to do the job well.

If you would like to meet with me, I ask that you please contact me at the following number: (111)-333-6310. Thanks for your consideration and call.


Your Signature

Kevin Underwood
