Dear Dr. Abraham:

I am very keen in applying for your Veterinary Assistant position that was advertised in your job portal. I am very enthusiastic in pursuing veterinary medicine, particularly working with equines. I am keyed up regarding the likelihood of being able to deliver my skills while obtaining more knowledge in this area through the position you are offering.

As you will see in my attached resume, I will be graduating from University of NJ in January 2014, where I am majoring in Veterinary Studies and will be continuing with a Bachelor’s degree in Zoology. I feel certain that my abilities working with animals and the acquaintance I have gained through my related work will allow me to be successful as a veterinary assistant. Additionally, the customer service, communication, and leadership skills developed from my experience working at a variety of veterinary practices will add to my capability to be winning in this position.

I deem these are the kinds of skills and abilities you are seeking in a Veterinary Assistant, and I would like to meet with you to talk about this further. I will call you next week to see if we can arrange a meeting. If you require contacting me prior to then, you may reach me at (999) 999-9999 or via email at [Email Address Here].
