RE: (Insert vacancy/position)
I am extremely interested in being considered for an Engineering Specialist position, and am submitting my resume for review. In advance, thank you for your time and consideration.
As demonstrated in my resume, I offer 20 years of progressive experience with the US Air Force, specializing in RF communications. I offer expertise in designing, developing, installing, maintaining/repairing, and optimizing satellite, networking and radio frequency systems, including testing from antennas to front-end systems and providing full life-cycle support. In addition to a broad range of technical expertise, I offer extensive experience in training and leading personnel, managing work center operations, steering major projects, and coordinating global logistics. I have succeeded in saving the military hundreds of thousands of dollars through innovative measures and excel in identifying and implementing policies, procedures and methodologies to optimize both operational and financial performance.
I will be separating from the US Air Force in the near future, retiring as a Master Sgt., and will be available for a new career opportunity as of October 15, 2008. I am confident my technical expertise, dynamic leadership skills and commitment to superior performance will be an asset to your organization. I welcome the opportunity to interview with you, and look forward to your response.
