Dear Mrs. Phillips,

I was very excited to see your opening for a Museum Curator in the Los Angeles Times as I have recently relocated to the area. My education, a Master’s Degree in Archeology as well as the twenty years of experience that I have would make me the perfect fit for your museum.

At my previous museum, I was in charge of display set up and bringing in temporary displays to bring a new interest into the museum. This museum was a small one and I was the only curator that was in residence. I am only seeking a new position because I needed to move in order to grow as a curator and feel that my previous position held me back.

I am looking to grow with your museum and know that my experience with many different genres that I dealt in at my last employer would be a benefit. I personally am attracted to the prospect of traveling to bring in new pieces and full displays for the museum that I am attached to.

A meeting to get into more detail about my dreams for your museum would be in both of our interests. I can be reached by calling (222)-482-4993 or through emailing [email] I am available at any time and look forward to meeting you.
