Dear Mr. Brown:
I've played basketball and tennis at Westside Rec Center all through my growing up years. Today, however, I am writing this cover letter to apply for the job of recreation worker now that I have my college degree with an emphasis on physical fitness. I'm especially qualified to teach hiking and camping skills. I was pleased to see your posting for such a position on JobBankUSA.com. My experience as an assistant among other recreation workers in my college town helped me prepare for this hands-on opportunity.
I can begin immediately as I live just a mile from Westside Recreation Center and pass it each day on my morning run.
Do you have time next week to meet me for a brief interview? You can reach me at 897-567-4563 any evening after 5:30 p.m. or on weekends. I'll be happy to come to your office at a time that works for you so we can talk about what the job involves and whether or not you feel I'm a good fit.
