Resume: Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing to enquire if you have any vacancies in your company. My studies, which include an Upper Second Class 2:1 honors degree in Biology and experience within the field I believe well qualifies me for a job within your company. I have enclosed by CV for your information.
As you can see, I have in previous jobs I have worked in a variety of laboratory environments, two of which I worked as a Drilling Fluids Laboratory Technician. While working with drilling fluids for the oil and gas companies Weatherford and Scomi, I not only formulated and tested drilling fluids and chemicals but was required to write reports, procedures and analyse data. This not only required my academic and practical knowledge in the field but teamwork and communication which I believe I have demonstrated in my previous jobs.

Having been fortunate to experience living, and in several cases working, in different countries including Holland, Australia, Malaysia, Spain and the UK and I have had to learn to be flexible and adapt quickly to the situations I have been placed in. This I believe has given me many skills that will be directly applicable in the workplace.

I am a conscientious person who is willing to learn and develop my skills. I believe that I would be an asset to your team and hope to hear from you soon.
