College And Career 5th Period English I Christian Ochoa Texas A & M University/ Law Enforcement  

Texas A & M was founded/ opened on 1876 and it was the state of Texas, first institution of higher learning. Texas A & M university holds more than 50,000 students and it has more than 10,000 graduate students. These students study for more than 120 undergraduate and 240 graduate degrees. There has been and there is still many things to do at this university. For example there is over 800 student organizations, including clubs, activities, sports, etc.

The reason why i would like to attend Texas A & M university is because ever since i started researching about colleges and universities, this university caught my attention. Everything about this university caught my attention; the campus, college life, clubs, athletics, etc.

Whatever it is that you love, Student Activities is here to help you practice your passion through involvement in over 1000 recognized student organizations, tons of service opportunities, Aggie traditions, and unlimited leadership experiences. Get Involved. Develop as a Leader. Serve Others. Student Activities is where it all begins.

What i would like to study for in high school/college is law enforcement, security and protective services to become a U.S. Border Patrol  or customs agent. When I was little I always wanted to be a police officer. Now that I started learning more about law enforcement, security and protective services, I found out that there's many more interesting careers.

A U.S. Border Patrol agent will receive very good pay and benefits and it makes the career worthwhile. Average salary for a new agent is $49,000 per year. New full time employees earn 4 hours of annual leave and 4 hours of sick leave per pay period for the first three years on the job. After three years on the job you will begin to earn 6 hours of annual leave for each pay period. Individuals may qualify to participate in NEXUS if they are a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or Canada who pass criminal history and law enforcement checks.

Dear PACSUN,

I am responding to the employment opportunity listed on your website. Please accept this letter and accompanying resume as evidence of my interest in applying for this job. I feel that my team working skills would prove to be an asset for your organization. I am looking for an honored job that will add experience to my building career. I believe that I’m an excellent team worker because many times, I have been in situations where I had to work with a group of people to accomplish something. For example, with my football team, we were down by many points but we didn’t give up or got mad at each other, we worked harder and we finished strong and we ended up winning the game. I am confident that these qualities make me an excellent candidate for this position.

I would appreciate your consideration of my credentials. I welcome the chance to meet with you to hear more about your company, the requirements of the position, and how my skills would be a good fit.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Christian Ochoa

Letter Of Recommendation

To Whom It May Concern:

I strongly recommend my colleague, Joseph Matthew Mendoza, for employment at PACSUN. I have had the pleasure of working alongside him since elementary school, and he’s a very responsible young ma. For example, one time when the teacher told him to make sure the class was gone for several weeks, he was able to keep everything and everyone in class organized.

I have had the opportunity to observe Joseph’s professional skills as well as interpersonal style. He is consistently working hard, and takes on all assignments with enthusiasm and dedication. I wish that all my peers had his hard workers attitude because with his attitude I believe that people will be more successful.

Regardless of deadlines or other pressure Joseph always delivers. His superior organizational skills make him the consummate multi-tasker. Therefore, I provide my strong recommendation for Joseph. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at (915) 500-9353.

Respectfully,

Christian Ochoa
