Re: Security Officer | Advertised on Monster
Dear Mr. Ming:
As a dedicated security officer, I have served on security forces for large corporations since joining XYZ Security Consulting in 2010. Previously as a military police officer for the U.S. Marine Corps, I handled law enforcement and security guard assignments at military bases and embassies in the U.S. and overseas.
My background appears to be a strong match to your advertised opening on Monster for a security officer, and I hope to be considered for this position.
Throughout my career, I completed extensive training in weapons handling, personal protection, counter-terrorism tactics, patrol procedures and surveillance systems, and was honored with awards and commendations for exemplary service in protecting lives, property and classified assets.
- Reduced shrink 17% by strengthening undercover surveillance procedures
- Ensured the safety of high-profile clients and their guests in high-risk regions of the world
- Implemented cutting-edge technologies and CCTV systems to improve security measures
- Conducted threat assessments to mitigate risk and prevent security vulnerabilities
Working collaboratively with law enforcement agencies and security personnel, I am dedicated to serving my clients with excellence. My credentials include certification from the Ohio Police Officer Training Academy and licensure to carry a concealed handgun.
Please call me at (555) 555-5555 to set up an interview. Thank you.
