Complexity of a cover letter automatically enhances with the complexity of the position being applied for. For this reason, cover letters for technical positions demand special attention. Same is the case with cover letters for medical lab technician (MLT) position.

MLT cover letters should reflect your sound understanding of field and related technologies. On the other hand, usage of too many technological terms is not advisable. You need to build a balanced cover letter, which highlights your expertise and knowledge in a very concise manner.

Following is a good sample cover letter for the position of a medical lab technician.

Dear Ms. Bryan:

I am very interested in obtaining the Medical Lab Technician (MLT) position at the Medics Lab, as advertised in the Daily Post. My Texas State MLT license and 8 years’ relevant experience coupled with registration as a Medical Laboratory Technician with the ASCP, makes me a good candidate for this position.

My following qualifications will help me attain the goals of your facility:

• Adept at performing manual and automated blood tests
• Well versed in preparing specimens for microscope examination
• Proficient in operating laboratory equipment including dry bath incubators, centrifuges, and blood bank refrigerators

In addition, my hands on experience in chemical testing and histological studies could come in very handy at your lab’s department of microscopic chemical studies. Team-work abilities and inborn enthusiasm for research are two other features of my profile.

I intend to utilize my skills and expertise to contribute to the mission of Medics Lab. I’ll call your office after 7 working days to set up a mutually convenient date and time for interview. In the Interim, may you have any queries or require any documents, please feel free to contact me at (000) 999-8888.
