Dear Ms. Huxley:
I write to introduce myself as a prime candidate for your advertised position of Arbor Manager at green Care Nurseries, and have enclosed my resume for your convenience.
I began my career with a love for all things green, and began cultivating my own personal flower and vegetable gardens during high school. I, then, went onto receive a Bachelors of Science in Horticulture Science; and then, a Masters in the Environmental Effects on Horticulture. Meanwhile, I completed my ongoing coursework at the local greenhouses-first, the University of Pennsylvania’s nursery; and then, Pennsylvania State’s own greenhouse. Here are the skills and experience I have to offer:
•Well versed in all aspects of Horticultural Science
•Able to ascertain various flower/vegetable/plant species based on color, texture, and look.
•Fluent with the maintenance and growing of all living plants.
•Masters in Environmental Effects on Horticulture.
•Bachelors in Horticulture Science.
•Knowledgeable about current kinds of care-farm, greenhouse, and artificial nurture.
I thank you very much for your time, and look forward to the opportunity of meeting with you to discuss my qualifications further as they relate to a position with your company. I am confident that you will find from this letter of address-as well as from my resume-that I am more than qualified to bring great benefit to Green Care Nurseries on a short and long term basis.
Best Regards,
Bill Cosdy
