Sample Bodyguard Cover Letter

When writing a bodyguard cover letter be sure the hiring manager knows you understand not only the responsibilities of the job but also the dangers and how you would protect yourself and your client from harm. If you have a license to carry a weapon be sure to state that, as well. All bodyguard cover letters should deliver this kind of important information to help the applicants land the jobs they are applying for.

Mr. Robert Ames
Hiring Manager
Personal Protection Services
19 E. 64th Street
Any Town, USA 78956

Dear Mr. Ames:

I looked on JobBankUSA.com this week in search of a position as a bodyguard-or more precisely a close-protection officer. I was pleased to see your post. I am ready to begin work right away and would appreciate an opportunity to show you what I have accomplished in this field since my training at New York Guard Services, which I completed in October of 2004.

I specialize in protecting visiting dignitaries from other countries, famous athletes and their families, and distinguished clergy.

Would you like to meet to talk over this position and the duties I'd perform if you choose to hire me? I'd enjoy speaking with you in person. Please call me on my cell phone: 785-897-3434 to set up an interview or to meet for lunch. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for taking a moment to review my cover letter and go over my resume.
