To Whom It May Concern: I am writing about obtaining employment with your company. I believe my experience and expertise will enhance your, company. On the following pages are highlights of my employment history and education, and I am confident that you will find my skills benefit you greatly. My background in electronics, varied as it is, has strong focus in the fields of RF, telecommunications, broadcasting, Avionics, Intelligence Equipment, and computer systems/networking. In today’s wireless world, this has been an asset beyond expectation. In addition I also have strong management skills. You will see, too, I have a long track record of success in the wireless industry, spanning 20 years. I was recognized at a national conference in Las Vegas, and received an award for designing and implementing new broadcast facilities and my designs. From there, spanning back two decades, every endeavor culminated in triumph. My military career allowed me to master technologies that won’t be available to public markets for years to come; and my post-military career allows me to apply my knowledge in meaningful ways. I would very much like to communicate with you further regarding how my abilities will work well for you. Please feel free to contact me at any of the above noted sources. Thank you. Sincerely, Chris Gielow
