“Dear Mr. Thatcher,

For most of my life, I have demonstrated a strong interest in the healthcare industry. I have always also been interested in helping others, and the phlebotomist job opening for your company is the right fit for me. I am interested in joining your healthcare team to help elevate the quality of services to patients getting blood drawn.

The job posting stated that experience was necessary, and I have five years of experience as a phlebotomist. I have worked in a doctor’s office and a hospital with a high volume of patients. In each of my former jobs, I have made it a priority to make patients feel comfort during procedures. I have experience with young infants, as well as the elderly.

I also have an excellent record of maintaining accurate specimens and records. My workspace was always pristine, even at the busiest times of the day. Additionally, I have always strived to follow all regulations and recommendations in order to keep myself and others protected from possible pathogens.

I believe that I would be a great addition to your company. Thank you for reviewing my resume and considering me for this role. I am prepared to tell you more about my experience when we meet for an interview.”

“Dear Dr. Masters,

Working as a part-time phlebotomist during my final years of medical school has afforded me a fascinating insight into a front-line medical care setting. After a rewarding and educational year at Arlington General, I am excited to apply for a part-time position with Hillcrest Hospital.

I am a caring and meticulous phlebotomist, with an expert approach to venipuncture and a passion for patient care. My medical studies help me to understand the broader medical needs of each patient and I always aim for my role to suit their situation.

I pride myself on my organizational skills and have performed procedures in a wide variety of clinical settings and for patients of all ages. My childhood aversion to needles (which eventually helped draw me to the role) makes my work with the youngest patients particularly important to me. I would look forward to working with the school-age children in your community programs.

I have a 100% operational record in terms of adhering to protocols around specimen handling, safety and privacy. Although I am yet to finish my studies, I have worked closely with doctors and nurses in the analysis and diagnosis sides of the role and I seek to improve my knowledge whenever possible.

I would welcome the opportunity to further discuss how my experience might benefit your team.
