Dear Ms Graham,
Further to your recent advertisement for the position of Correctional Officer on the Dayjob.com website, I would like to be considered for this vacancy and enclose my CV for your review.
I am a real difference maker who is looking for an opportunity like yours, where I can make a positive impact and difference to an offender’s life.
As someone who can deal with individuals from various socio-economic backgrounds in any hostile or confrontational situation, I feel I would be an ideal candidate for your position. I have a track record of promoting a positive change in offender behaviour, and helping to reintegrate them back into the community. I will be more than able to maintain order and provide for the security, care and direct supervision of inmates at meals, during recreation and on work assignments in any correctional facility. Beyond this I would also like to mention my ability to respond to abusive language and conduct in a professional manner.
What is really unique about me is how I can process information logically and then make sound decisions based on my findings.
Right now I would like to join a facility like yours where I will have an opportunity to affect positive change in the community.
The enclosed resume provides a more detailed description of my education, interests, and work experience. If you feel that my expertise is a close match to your requirements and that an interview will be to our mutual benefit, then please do not hesitate to contact me.
