edu (408) 823-7668 June 10, 2012 Dear Profesor Bhalla, I am starting my third year at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I have a declared major in Psychology and minor in Education. I was on the premed path, but realized, during my 2nd year, that medicine wasn’t my passion; teaching was. I saw this lab assistant listing (#4920) on the UCSC employee request system and I am more than interested in this position. I would love an opportunity to participate with and assist you in your lab. I may not be a MCD major, but I have experience in working in psychology research for Professor Dom Massaro. I have worked with Dom Massaro in UCSC’s psychology department. I helped his research on how we can help children as young as infants learn how to read and speak faster. Not only was I assisting his research, I was one of his office assistants. I organized books in his library, worked in databases, and revised information and books in his folders for him to input them into his systems. Most of the time, I worked alone. But I was part of a team of 5 associates. I have taken chemistry, chemistry lab, and biology courses. So I am familiar with the chemistry labs on campus and what equipment is used for what. I believe I am qualified to assist in anyway, and if not, I am a quick learner that can accomplish anything. I have also enclosed my resume on the next page, which provides additional information about my past and current work experiences. I really hope I get the opportunity to meet with you to discuss how my education and experiences would benefit your needs. If you have any questions, please feel free to email at or to call my cell phone at (408) 823-7668. Thank you so much for your time.

Sincerely, Hannah Cheng
