Dear Mr. Williams:
The enclosed resume is in response to your job listing on the government website seeking a Police Officer for your department.
I have particular interest in this position, as my extensive experience in the Marines as an Assistant Petty Officer gave me a strict, disciplined environment in which the ultimate goal was to protect our citizens. Now home after my tour of duty, I want to address the same function of protecting and serving in this community-and the best way to put this experience and skills to work is through this position on your police force.
I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to discuss my experience further, learn more about all this position has to offer. I will follow up next week to see if an interview can be arranged.
I look forward to meeting you.
Sincerely yours,
Ernesta Ocean
