Dear Mr. Hyatt,
I am submitting my resume for your consideration for the Museum Tour Guide position advertised in the San Diego Times. I gratefully submit my letter as well as my resume for your review.
My experience and education has well prepared me for the role of Museum Guide with The San Diego Museum of Science in many ways. To begin, at present, I am finishing up my dual major of Natural Science and World History at the University of California-San Diego. This education has presented me with a world of coursework and education in the areas of world history and natural science to which I can use in this position-both my knowledge of these topics as well as my devout enthusiasm for them. Secondly, I have interned at two museums in the Southern California area-and therefore, know the organizational structure, general administration, and operational needs of what it takes to keep a museum running smoothly, and in keeping with the customer’s most optimized learning and enjoyment. Thirdly, I have been fortunate to hold titles at my school as Leader of the Debate Team, Residential Advisor for Gregory Dorm, and Captain of the Swim Team; so I know what it takes to bring success to any enterprise: ability to juggle many tasks, determination, well earned knowledge, and hard work. I am a leader and also a team player; and I seek to bring all this education, experience, and beneficial attributes to the team at the San Diego Museum of Science.
I appreciate your consideration of my credentials for this position, and very much look forward to the opportunity of discussing the position of Museum Tour Guide further, at your convenience. Please contact me at (999)999-9999 to schedule a time. Thanks so much for your time, and if there is anything else I might forward to aid you in the hiring process-please do not hesitate to let me know.
