Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
As a Military Police Officer transitioning out of the US Army into civilian service, I am looking to leverage my skills, training, and experience to work in the area of corporate security (asset, data, and individual). I believe I would make an ideal candidate for your open position of Security Manager and would like to highlight a few of my qualifications. Please consider:
- Served as Team Lead for an operation in Iraq, securing military vehicles and equipment valued in the millions of dollars; ensured only authorized personnel had access to the capital assets at all times.
- Scheduled military police personnel across three shifts, ensuring adequate coverage of security operations 24/7; trained team members in reviewing credentials for post access.
- Partnered with IT personnel on an assignment to investigate data security violations; identified and corrected weaknesses in the system and trained personnel on new policies and procedures.
Confident I will prove valuable to your operation, I respectfully submit my resume for your review. I would also like to request a personal meeting to discuss your upcoming goals and how I can help you achieve them. I will make myself available at your convenience and look forward to your call. Until then, thank you for your consideration.
