1. Summary (Cover Letter) - CV/Resume Part 1 [Mandatory]
To whom it may concern,
I have read with interest about the jobs available on the gas rigs. I am eager to obtain a job as a qualified chef on a gas/oil rig. I am relocating to Western Australia at the end of next month.
As you will see from my resume, I have a great deal of experience in the hospitality industry, and I wish to further my skills by moving away from the environment I am used to and getting a great experience. I believe I would be a valuable asset to your company as I adapt to different working and living arrangements extremely well and would love to help you further your company.
I hope to have an opportunity to meet with you to discuss how I could contribute to your team.
