Dear Mr. Manion:

I'm writing this cover letter today to apply for the opening you advertised for an apprentice photographer on JobBankUSA.com. I have specialized in photography classes in high school and junior college and have worked in photo studios part time during my schooling years. Now I would like to work as an apprentice so I can learn the skills necessary to embark on a full-time career in photography. I am impressed with the program you offer at your company and would welcome being a photographer in training at one of your west side studios.

Would you like to discuss your expectations for the apprentice photographers you select for this job? I'm available to meet you any afternoon after 2:00 p.m. Please call 888-888-8888 to arrange a date and time that works for you. Thank you so much for reading my enclosed materials.
