Atlanta, GA 30303

Dear Mr. Heinrich,

I have a real desire to be considered for the security officer position now available within your company. After graduation I assumed the position of a mall security guard for four years in which I learned many secrets of the trade while continuing to acquire my degrees.

My experience includes patrolling the assigned area, ensuring facility is secure and acknowledging suspicious activity or behavior. I have the ability to decide what to do in an emergency situation based on what’s going on at the time and the knowledge to determine what can be dismissed and what should be reported.

My skills and training includes the ability to be observant and investigate unusual activity quickly and efficiently. I have a general knowledge of fire and security inspection procedures, the ability to maintain the security of facility and safety for anyone on the premises and a flexible work schedule so I’m available when needed.

As a security officer it’s vital that you maintain a good relationship with police officers and that you report to them whenever necessary. My excellent verbal and written communication skills and courteous nature makes this easy to accomplish.

I believe I have the qualities you’re searching for at Covenant Services Worldwide and would like to meet face to face to discuss the particulars of this position. Please contact me at (123)-587-5166 to make arrangements.

Sincerely,

Your Signature

William Lew
