Dear Hiring Manager,
I am applying for the position of on-call archaeological field technician advertised on Shovelbums.org’s jobs board. I believe I am an excellent candidate for this position because I have a love of archaeology and an eagerness to preserve our past. I have field experience working in Nicaragua, and while I do not have 6 months of experience in the field working in California, I have 10 months of lab experience working on different sites throughout the Bay Area. I am hard working, detail oriented, and not afraid to get my hands dirty. I hope you will consider my application, and I look forward to the next phase in the hiring process.
