Re: Certified Phlebotomist (Job ID 2012-65)
Dear Mr. Daniels:
Your advertisement on your website signifies that you are looking for a knowledgeable Phlebotomist at Codex Lab Services. I fit your requirements perfectly because I recently acquired Phlebotomy certification and possess hands-on knowledge of all the related functions.
Based on your requirements, I possess the following qualifications which will make a valuable asset for Codex Lab Services:
• Highly skilled in collecting blood, tissue and other samples
• Well-versed in conducting routine laboratory tests
• In depth knowledge of quality assurance of testing techniques
• Track record of performing all outlined clerical and computer duties
• Demonstrated ability to set up medical laboratory equipment
• Able to clean and maintain medical laboratory and relevant equipment
During my school years, I made it a point to perform voluntary services at the medical lab. Later, I held two summer jobs working at Fair Laboratories where my work consisted of helping phlebotomists with their daily tasks. Learning of venipuncture techniques and apt collection protocols was an absolute joy since I joined a medical laboratory.
I am confident that my abilities match closely to the specifications that you have stated in your advertisement. I would like to meet with you in person to discuss how I can be an asset to your organization. I will call you after one week to ask for an interview and can be reached any time at (100) 111-1112.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
