Dear Ms. Rogers,
I saw your posting for the position of Horticulturist with Chicago Botanic Garden and I am applying for the job.
I have a degree in Plant Science and extensive knowledge of the principles of Horticulture. I currently hold this position where I have gained considerable knowledge in all of the latest methods being used for research and landscaping. In addition, I have extensive knowledge in collecting and analyzing data.
I monitor processes such as preparing the soil, providing irrigation and controlling pest. I take part in budget discussions, evaluating the administrative team and in preparing the weekly and monthly progress reports.
I gather and provide information on transplanting and protecting plants and trees. I make suggestions on which fertilizers, herbicides and other compounds to use. I also perform inventory and work with blueprints, layouts, schematics and graphic instructions.
I have outstanding multitasking abilities along with excellent communication and organizational skills. My knowledge includes being skilled with the computer and a number of different software applications and programs. I can accurately record all projects from beginning to end and create documents of the research done.
I have exceptional reasoning skills, I work well as team or I can work proficiently on my own. I adapt very fast so I have the ability to work in all types of weather conditions and I learn very quickly. I am always looking for ways to enhance operations and reduce the turnaround time as much as possible.
Please call (123)-231-7810 to set up an interview. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
