Mr. Philip Price,
Hiring Manager
Brighton Race Track

Any Town, USA 78956

Dear Mr. Price:

I spent the last few weeks checking out employment opportunities on JobBankUSA.com for a clerk-of-scales position with a racetrack. Today I was happy to find your recent posting for this job. I am well qualified to weigh jockeys and riding equipment before and after each race to make sure that assigned handicapped weights have been carried during the race. This is a task I am familiar with and experienced at, as I worked alongside other clerks-of-scale during my early years in the horseracing industry.

May I meet with you in person to discuss this position? If you're interested, please call me at 456-777-8989 to set up a date and time that works for you. Thanks so much for your time and attention to my cover letter and resume. I hope we can get together soon. I'd welcome being part of your staff at Brighton.

Sincerely,


William Burton
