Dear Hiring Officer,

I am interested in interviewing for the position as a quality assurer. I believe that my strong organizational and technical skills, ability to effectively communicate and coordinate with others, and high adaptability and resourcefulness would make me an asset to the company.

 

As part of my undergraduate career, I took several 6-hour to 3-hour weekly labs which demanded strong organization, planning, and time management to efficiently coordinate several concurrently running experiments. The stress on proper technique and practices to obtain excellent results was vital due to the limitations for materials, equipment, and time. The lab was performed individually but required collaboration and excellent communication with other students due to limitations on materials. Proper documentation of results was also heavily stressed.

In addition to my academic experiences, I worked as a laboratory technician for an academic pharmaceutical research group.  As the technician, I was independently responsible for general laboratory maintenance and sample quality control testing. Effective communication with the graduate students and weekly meetings allowed me to anticipate upcoming needs of the group and foresee any issues that may occur.  As a technician, I not only trained but I also composed a detailed manual outlining the standard operating practices (SOPs) of the lab for new technicians. The manual is constantly updated as I find more efficient or more effective methods using the resources available to maintain a sterile and well-stocked research laboratory.

I am confident that I am a good fit for the position as a quality assurer due to my strong management skills, communication skills and highly adaptable but resourceful problem-solving abilities. I would be happy to provide any additional materials upon request. Thank you for your time and consideration and I eagerly look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,
