Samples of cover letters for a vet tech with no experience

If you have zero experience and you’re looking to start a job in your specific industry, you can get the attention of job recruiters and hiring managers by including a well-written cover letter for a fresher level with your resume even with limited experience. When writing a cover letter with zero experience, these are some of the important things to include in your letter:

  • Mention your fresh knowledge. Use your recent learning experiences to your advantage; an employer might be more willing to hire you if they know you can help their business acclimate to new technologies or practices.
  • Express your energy and enthusiasm. It shows the potential motivation you will bring to a job as a fresh college graduate.
  • Check your grammar and proofread your letter. It is a way of showing employers your ability to write comprehensive, error-free messages.
  • The first step is addressing the employer with a formal salutation. For example, “Dear/Hello (name of the recipient).” If you do not know the name of the recipient, you can refer to them as the hiring manager.
  • The next step is to state the position you are applying for and how you found the opening. 
  • Make a brief statement about why you’re interested in the position.
  • Since you are a recent graduate, it would help to emphasize your college coursework, internships, and other experiences that show your employability.
  • Ensure your qualifications are similar to the job position. 
  • Conclude your letter with a forward-looking statement. For example, “I look forward to 

discussing the position with you further.”

Mr. Grimshaw Crawford

Veterinary Doctor

Pets and Vets

22 Buttonwood Drive

Newport, NH 52423

Dear Mr. Crawford:

As an avid animal lover with a sound knowledge of veterinary practices, I would like to be considered for a Veterinary Technician position at Pets and Vets. My fully accredited Veterinary Technician training program, as well as enthusiasm, makes an excellent fit.

As can be seen in the enclosed resume, I have voluntarily worked in animal care and office administration capacities for 8 months and understand the primary functions of a vet tech position. I am competent in preparing treatment rooms and managing pets during procedures. Also, I am familiar with both healthcare and other physical needs of pets and possess expertise in providing both. Being organized by personality, I know just what a veterinary office administration needs are, and I can perform them with minimal supervision.

Given these points, I am convinced that I will be an asset to your office in terms of animal care and administrative support as I am adept in both areas. I’d like to meet with you to discuss this in detail and am available at (000) 555-0102 if you need further information.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

“Dear Ms. Ruiz,

I am writing to submit my application for the Vet Tech job opening up in your animal hospital. I am looking to move from Schenectady to Easton, and would love the opportunity to work at a larger practice such as yours. Please find enclosed my resume and references. I am confident you will like what you see.

I immensely enjoy the challenge of handling farm animals. While I realize you probably don’t see too many chickens, horses and cows in your practice, I was very interested to learn that you specialize in exotic pets and birds. I am truly eager to gain experience working with snakes, in particular. But reptiles in general are of great interest to me, as we don’t have too many folks out this way who raise them.

Whatever the task you need me to do, I am equipped to get the job done. We have a very small staff here, so I’ve had to handle just about every kind of job – from working the front desk and covering reception, to helping with inventory control, to preparing prescriptions and giving client demonstrations, to assisting with surgery and dental procedures.

I would love the opportunity to talk more about the job. Please call me at (555)-555-5555.

Dear Ms. Doe:

I am writing to express my genuine interest in obtaining a Vet Tech summer internship with AAA Ranch. My diverse qualifications, academic background, practical animal treatment experience, and time management skills will facilitate me to contribute to the continuing success of AAA Ranch.

As you will see in my attached resume, I am a senior at Texas State University majoring in Animal Sciences. I possess hands-on knowledge of working with animals at both the OSU Horse Center and my family’s beef livestock operation.

I have also gained practical experience working with beef and dairy farm animals, sheep, swine, horses, and chicken through the laboratory assignments I have taken during my Animal Sciences major. Also, I developed exceptional communication skills while working with the students in my hall.

I would be grateful for the opportunity to meet with you in order to discuss my skills and your expectations from your next vet tech intern. I’ll call your office after ten days to follow up. In case you need additional information, please contact me at (000) 099-1234.
