Dear Mr. Quizon,

I am very interested in the Pharmacist position posted on rxcareercenter.com. Having graduated from the University of Southern California’s School of Pharmacy, I believe I have the appropriate preparation and training for the responsibilities that this job entails. (Must specifically address the position desired as well as the website or publication of the job advertisement.)

My experience in customer service at Starbucks Coffee has helped me to develop my communication skills and connect with regular customers on a more personal level. This has given me the foundation necessary to be able to connect with patients about their health in a professional, yet relaxed manner. (Make connections to how a seemingly unrelated previous job’s skills can apply to those necessary for this Pharmacist job.)

My educational background has equipped me with the knowledge about all drugs and their side effects. I have trained in several places including community pharmacies and hospital pharmacies over the course of 4 years. From my experience, I have learned to be a team player, to work under pressure, and to be detail oriented. Some of my responsibilities included administering prescriptions, advising patients, and corresponding with doctors and vendors. (Describe your educational background/training in Pharmacy. What skills and qualities did you gain from your involvement?)

I am a licensed pharmacist who is hard working and dedicated in providing patients not only the medication, but also the advice regarding the medication, that they need. I would like the opportunity to meet with you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (555) 555-5555 or by email at lmcdonald@healer.com. (Give contact information.)

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to scheduling an interview where I can talk more about my interests and qualifications. (Express gratitude for their time.)

Sincerely,

Leon McDonald
