Sample Forensic Science Technician Cover Letter

A forensic science cover letter is a good way to attract the attention of a hiring manager, especially if you include references to your ability to investigate crimes by collecting and analyzing physical evidence. If you specialize in areas such as DNA analysis or firearm examination, performing tests on weapons or on substances such as fiber, glass, hair, tissue, and body fluids to determine their significance to the investigation, be sure to mention that, as well. All forensic science cover letters can help applicants land jobs if they include both experience and specialties, where they apply.
