Dear Ms. Cook,
In response to your recent advertisement in the Academy of Certified Archivists Journal, please accept this letter and enclosed resume in application for the Senior Archivist position.
I believe that my skills and varied background make me an excellent fit for the described job requirements. During more than 15 years of experience in the field, I have been both an archivist at the prestigious San Francisco Museum of Science and Industry and a corporate archivist at a Fortune 500 company. Planning and developing Billingsworth’s archive from the ground up was an invaluable experience. I was especially gratified when the archive was featured in Business Perspectives.
Also, in both of these positions I have had the opportunity to work on state-of-the-art cataloging systems and now have significant expertise in technologies relevant to an archivist’s work. Finally, I have successfully supervised numerous archival personnel and have taken postgraduate management courses to further augment my skills in this area.
I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss the position and answer any questions you may have about my credentials.
