Dear (name),

I am a solutions-oriented Chemical Engineer with extensive skills in engineering and biotechnology research. With an MS in Chemical Engineering and a proven track record in advanced laboratory operations, I am seeking a professional opportunity to leverage my skills with an organization that is looking for talented and ambitious engineers.

My credentials are based on a well-rounded background that includes rigorous training and extensive research at three highly respected organizations. Accustomed to fast-paced settings where results are obtained by focus, resourcefulness, and hard work, I enjoy a challenge and thrive in demanding environments.

I have attached a resume outlining my qualifications. Some of the key strengths I can offer include:

Ø A history of making constructive things happen by having an ownership mentality to opportunities combined with the ability to think creatively and function outside traditional parameters in order to drive projects and achieve results.

Ø Proven ability to successfully analyze an organization's critical business requirements, identify deficiencies and potential opportunities, and develop innovative and cost-effective solutions for reducing costs, streamlining, operations, and improving productivity.

Ø A valuable blend of leadership, resourcefulness, and technical skill that combines efficiency with imagination to produce highly effective bottom-line results.

Ø Acknowledged for being resourceful, adaptable, and self-directed with the ability to meet even the most challenging goals due to outstanding troubleshooting, analytical, and problem solving skills.

Ø Exceptional ability to concurrently manage complex projects while meeting rigorous procedural standards, strict operational protocols, and demanding schedules.

I would like to set up an interview to discuss the ways in which my skills could benefit your organization. I will call your office next week concerning any questions you may have, and to arrange a meeting. Of course, you may contact me directly at any time. Thank you for your consideration.
