Fred Shero once said, "Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire." While I don't think that self-immolation is necessarily the path to success, I have always adhered to the belief that pursuing a career requires bravery and effort.
With that in mind, I am excited to apply for the ABC position at XYZ. Over the past three years I have taken DEF classes and achieved my certification in GHI from JKL Institution. My fascination with the craft has led me to volunteer extensively as an ABC at MNO and PQR, managing groups of volunteers and educating interested parties.
My previous job as a STU also provided me with key experiences and training for this position, including:
I am not afraid to put time and hard work into my goals, and becoming an ABC is a dream that I have steadily been pursuing for the last three years. I think you will find that I bring these qualities to every job I do. I will always give a project my all. I will always set myself on fire.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
