Food Safety Specialist Cover Letter Sample

Updated on: February 24, 2016

Writing a cover letter cannot be deemed a small thing. It is in fact the most important thing that you will do when you apply for a job. And since its importance is that high, it makes sense to write a cover letter that is not less than what the employer is looking for. But how can you be sure about what the employer wants exactly? You can’t. Each company that you apply to will have different requirements and it is up to you to make sure that you write each cover letter – separately – for them. One cover letter does not fit all. You have to make sure that you do not make this mistake as it becomes obvious (quite easily) to the employer that you did not bother writing a customized one for him specifically. Bad impression, all the way!

And since making a good impression is what your aim is, write your food safety specialist cover letter in a way that it meets all the requirements of good cover letter writing and the employer’s specific needs. Typically, cover letters need to follow a protocol that dictates:

a) Understandable language
b) Relevant information
c) Accomplishments or/and skills orientation
d) Short and concise

Follow these four things and you may never have to worry about cover letter writing again!

Dear Mr. Macomber:

Gone are the days when people grew their own food and prepared dishes using organic ingredients. Now that so much has changed, the need for food safety has become intense and has given birth to the need of specialist “police” to make sure that the end product is as close to organic as possible. Not foreseeing the near future being anything different than what I have mentioned here, I decided to pursue a career in food safety so that I could make a difference in how food is prepared and presented to the end user.

A degree in environmental health, with a major in food safety has contributed to my skills in developing constructive and corrective strategies to address red-flagged areas in food preparation, and to handle the correlating repercussions. Conducting surveys on restaurants and cafeterias for over 10 years now, I am well-versed in the many situations that can lead to food safety non-compliance, and I am adept at ensuring that they do not transpire. If you are interested in knowing how I have managed to attain success at every step – by constantly ensuring food safety compliance – you may contact me at (444) 444-4444 so that I can explain in detail. I will also be in touch for a meeting soon.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
