Sample Geochemist Cover Letter

When writing a geochemist cover letter be sure the individual who does the hiring knows your experience as one who understands the nature of the job--studying the chemical composition of the Earth and other planets, chemical processes and reactions that govern the composition of rocks and soils, etc. All geochemist cover letters should specify the applicants' interest, ability, and specialties, if they apply. This will help land the jobs they want.
