Mr. Ford Crawford - HR Director,
The Company,
The Road,
TheCity, TheState.

Dear Mr. Crawford,

I was put in contact with you through (contact person/way you found out about the opening i.e monster, newspaper, etc...) at BS Recruitment Specialists. I was made aware of your requirements to hire an Operations Manager and I enclose my resume in application for this role.

My experience as an Operations Manager has included a three year position as Production Manager at Rayburn Plastics where I had direct responsibility for two manufacturing lines over two shifts, a total of 120 employees and an aggressive manufacturing schedule and build plan. Prior to that I was a Production Supervisor for three years with Boston Extrusions Inc where I supervised forty employees and managed all aspects of production planning.

With my successful management experience and proven track record in manufacturing, I feel that I would be a valuable addition to your company. I enclose my resume for your attention and hope that if you have any questions that require clarification you will not hesitate to contact me at the above telephone numbers.

I should like to meet with you personally to discuss this further and will contact you within the next week to arrange a meeting that is convenient for you.

Yours sincerely,

Student Name

Enclosure: Resume
