    COVER LETTER

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I am applying for a job in human space flight. I have always been interested in manned space flight and would like to be a part of the team that will put humans on Mars first. While I understand that your preference might be a degree in Engineering please understand that I began my college career in Engineering and switched to Physics because I wanted to know the root of the math I was learning.

    In December, I completed my B.S. in Physics and I have an AAS in Automotive Technology. I have taken classes in Material Science Engineering, AC/DC electronics, AutoCAD, Electrical Component Diagnostics, Vibration Correction, C++, Air Conditioning, Technical and Scientific Reports, Science Technology and Government, Physics, Astrophysics and many more. I also have 20 years of experience in assembly of electrical and mechanical devices. I am familiar with a large variety of materials and chemical compounds used in manufacturing processes and was an Environmental, Safety & Health officer. I have worked in the medical field, where the quality of the devices I built and operated in surgery could have had severe, adverse effects on patients so I am used to working for perfection under duress. In addition, I was one of only a handful of product allegation inspectors in the state of Arizona for General Motors. If a customer alleged that a vehicle was defective and caused a crash or injury I was asked to investigate the root cause. I was selected for that role because of my level of understanding of cause and effect relationships and my ability to find the root cause. I can read and interpret electrical schematics and drawings. I learned drafting by hand first and then used AutoCAD to make 3D component drawings. I also created electrical schematics for medical devices. I have experience in machine shop work, lathes and mills, mold making and plastic injection molding.

    I should also take a moment to explain my work history.  In the resume that follows you will see that I worked a variety of jobs, most of which were public outreach or education. These jobs were flexible in hours and outcomes that allowed me to work over 30 hours a week and still take my physics core classes that were in the middle of the day. Basically, I had to find multiple flexible jobs every semester because the physic core classes were only offered one time and only once per year. If you look further back in my employment history you will see that I have loyalty and longevity. I am used to working all hours of the day and splits shifts too. I should mention that I have also worked on call 24/365/7 as an emergency on-call laser operator.

    What I need is a foot in the door. I am used to having to start at the bottom and work my way up. In the automotive industry I started with no experience or training in the carwash. Six years later I was a manager in the service department.  I was then moved to the collision repair department, again with no experience and 3 years later I was the General Manger of 25 Million dollar facility.

    Now that I have explained why you should hire me let me briefly explain why I need to work for you. To date mankind’s greatest achievement was walking on the moon. I was born at the end of that era. When I was in Kindergarten I had a lunchbox with the moon rover on it. I thought it was a cartoon.  I didn’t learn until years later that the rover actually existed. College students in my Astronomy class no longer believe we ever went to the moon and my lunchbox story helps me understand why. I feel that we need to send man into deep space to ensure the survival of the human race and for people to believe once again in the greatness of our country.

    From this letter it is my hope that you can see that I am passionate and have the education and experience to help safely put people in space. Interview me and give me the opportunity to expand on the rest of my qualifications that the space of this letter would not allow.

    Sincerely,
