“Dear Ms. Janet Ford,

Upon seeing the advertisement for an Aquarist listed with Mystic Aquarium, I became very excited because I see it as a great opportunity to advance my career in this field.

I have been looking for a position such as this for several years and I believe that I am fully qualified to handle this one because I meet or exceed all of the requirements listed in the advertisement. Marine life has always fascinated me and that is why I choose to make a career out of caring for these amazing creatures.

I have experience working as an Aquarist with a small-scale aquarium exhibit and while I do enjoy my job here, I would like to move into a position with more responsibility such as the one being offered by your company.

My experience includes cleaning tanks, and controlling the water temperature and PH levels based on the needs of the different species. I also know how to prepare food for the different species and I can follow a dietary plan to make sure all marine creatures are being fed accordingly.

I have the ability to perform my duties without supervision but I can work in a group setting and get along well with others. I have some experience working with the public and giving presentations to guests that are viewing marine life. I enjoy the opportunity to help educate them about the different species.

Please call (555)-555-5555 to arrange a meeting where we can talk more about this position and my qualifications. I would love an opportunity to view your facility.

Sincerely,

Your Signature

Dear Ms. Jacobs,

When I saw the ad for an Aquarist at the nationally known Pacific Aquarium, I rushed to submit my attached resume for your review and consideration. With a degree in Marine Biology, an internship at the Springfield Aquarium and five years experience as an Aquarist at the Columbus Zoo, I would bring my expertise and love of the field to the Pacific Aquarium.

In my current position at the Columbus Zoo’s Aquarium, I am responsible for maintaining exhibit aesthetics and water quality, acquiring specimens, feeding and maintaining animal health, developing the education, training and media relations and assisting in the design and installation of new exhibits. My efforts in these areas have elevated the Zoo’s reputation to compete with other, larger aquariums in terms of visitor interaction and satisfaction as well as the variety of specimens available for viewing by the public.

I understand that my primary focus as an aquarist is caregiving, by ensuring that life within the aquarium is conducive to the plants and animals, that the creatures have all the needs to live well, and that the exhibits and displays remain clean for public viewing.

I look forward to your call to discuss how I can contribute to the already stellar reputation of the Pacific Aquarium. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Mallory Pineda”
