An anthropologist’s work is very interesting. They are social scientists who investigate human beings’ social, cultural and physical origins by conducting detailed studies. They gather information on human groups and determine what their cultural roles were in days of long ago and also find out information about a certain group’s customs and rituals.

A doctorate in Anthropology is usually a prerequisite for this position although people with a Masters degree do well in this work as well. If you are qualified to hold the position of an anthropologist, this cover letter should help you gain a job.

Mr. Vern Jefferson
Manager HR
Key Point Solutions
109 Spring Street
East Warwick, RI 55444


Dear Mr. Jefferson:

As a young adult, I have always wondered just what makes a human society tick! I have yet to find the answers in the many years following this thought even though I have done considerable work as an Anthropologist in the previous decade. My interest in working for Key Point Solutions lies in its belief in studying cultural variations among humans on a large scale.

An anthropologist in real and at heart, I have worked with systematic approaches to qualitative and quantitative analysis of different aspects of anthropology. Most recently, I have worked on a huge project pertaining to the identification of unknown skeletal remains in the outback of New Mexico which gave me substantial exposure to skeletal pathology – the type of work I wanted to do for years but have only just been awarded a chance to. With great experience in studying the origins of the human race with respect to their cultural and social needs, I am now certified to provide in depth knowledge of human behavior over the centuries and how this has affected world events.

It would be an honor to work with a company that shares my vision and I am of the belief that we must talk about this common element. I will be happy to answer any questions you may need to ask about my eligibility for this position.

Thank you for your consideration.
