Dear Ms. and Mr. VanDoosenburg, I am interested in applying for a position with your company. However, the position I would like to apply for is not listed in your “positions currently open” list. It has been a dream of mine for some time to run the snack bar on a whale watching boat after I retire in a few years. And I cannot imagine a better whale-watching endeavor than yours on Lake Michigan. I grew up living near the lake and though I currently do not live there it would be wonderful to be back on that great lake. Going to observe the annual whale migration at the lake was one of my favorite school field trips when I was a child. Sadly, I believe that due to budget concerns those type of trips are no longer offered. So it is great to know that families can still see these magnificent animals in the Lake Michigan habitat on your tours. In the interest of full disclosure I must tell you I lived on the Wisconsin side of the lake but I can tell that you are the kind of folks who will not hold that against me.
So could you let me know if you are considering opening that type of position in the future? If so, I would really like to apply. Thank you so much. Mrs. P. Turner
