Dr. Thomas Carol Carol-Smith Pharmacy
Summer Ville, TX 00024
Dear Dr. Carol,
I am interested in applying for a pharmacist position at Carol-Smith Pharmacy. As a 2025 graduate of Texas A&M Health Science Center, I have a Medical Degree in Pharmacy and have had experience at ''Family Pharmacy in Houston, TX.
Currently, I am still in school going for my doctorate in Pharmacy, but since I already own a pharmacy degree I would like to start working again. At the time I was employed at Family Pharmacy in Houston, I was a per-pharmacy graduate and working as a pharmacist tech. Being employed here, showed me the reality of working in a pharmacy and what it entails.
Learning and really experiencing what it was like in a real pharmacy, I instantly fell in love. This then resulted in me going back to college the earn a actual degree as a Pharmacist.
Now that I have my degree and can take that step up from being a pharmacist tech, I would really like the opportunity to be a part of Carol-Smith Pharmacy. Yes, I am still in school striving for my doctorate, but I will make an initiative to balance out my schooling and my job.

Letter Of Recommendation
To whom it may concern,
I highly recommend the admission of Breanna D. McDonald into the Texas Tech Health Sciences University. I believe that she is a positive role model and will excel specifically in the health sciences area.
Breanna is extremely intelligent, hard-working, and very dedicated to what she is doing. She takes a major interest in science, medicine and wanting to help others. I know that she is curious and always willing to learn, a few traits that make up an extraordinary student, like herself. As mentioned before, Breanna takes a significant interest in anything involving science. Throughout her high school years she was enrolled in Principles of Biomedical Science classes that have also helped her become very knowledgeable in that area. I believe that she would make an excellent Pharmacist when her studies are complete, all that is needed is the opportunity to learn.
I know that Ms.McDonald will continue to work hard and conquer anything with the positive attitude that she is known for. I realize that she is more than capable of completing her courses and will greatly benefit from the university. If you would like to discuss more about Breanna, please feel free to contact me through email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or over the phone at (915)123-4567.
