Sample Pharmacist Cover Letter

A pharmacist cover letter is the applicant's opportunity to focus on his ability as a health care professional whose job it is to take a request for medicines from a physician in the form of a medical prescription and dispense the medication to the patient and counsel him or her on the proper use and adverse effects of that medication. Pharmacist cover letters should reflect the job seeker's commitment to integrity and the high standards of this profession.

Dear Mr. Anderson:

I'm aware that among the many duties of licensed pharmacists, is the ability to speak with clients, answer health-related questions, help them make over-the-counter choices as well as explain the proper use and potential side effects of prescribed medications.

This is a profession I have enjoyed for over ten years. When I saw your listing on JobBankUSA.com for a part-time pharmacist at your Save-A-Lot Drug Store in Any Town, I knew I wanted to bid for the job right away and that is the purpose of this cover letter.

I welcome an opportunity to meet you in person to discuss the specific duties required at your store and to meet the people I will be working with. Please call me on my cell phone: 888-888-8888 so we can arrange a date and time that works for you. Thank you for considering me for the position.
