Re: EMT position advertised on Monster

Dear Ms. Plymouth:

As a certified EMT with 12 years of emergency medicine experience, I offer a passion for helping others and reputation for exceptional clinical and patient-relations skills.

Since joining the EMT team at XYZ Company, I have distinguished myself as a top-performing medical professional capable of handling a range of emergency rescue and response calls. Examples include:

  • Medical emergencies and complications due to chronic/severe illness (e.g., cardiac arrests, strokes, seizures, diabetic comas, burns, fractures, poison ingestion, drug/alcohol overdoses and injuries due to violent crimes)
  • Automobile collisions and vehicle extractions
  • Fast-water rescues, fires, floods and other disasters

I am committed to saving lives, and always meet or exceed contractual response times. I remain calm under pressure; quickly assess and stabilize patients; and ensure fast and safe transport of the ill or injured to hospitals for further medical care.

In addition to EMT certification, I completed the EVOC (Emergency Vehicle Operators Course) and hold active AHA certification in BLS (Basic Life Support). I am also a proficient user of MS Office and Electronic Medical Records software.

My skills, credentials and experience appear to match the requirements listed in your advertisement for an EMT. I hope to be selected for an interview, and can be reached at (555) 555-5555 or ds@somedomain.com.
