Dear Mr. McGrew:

I am writing this cover letter to let you know that I would like very much to fill the position of background artist listed on JobBankUSA.com. It is a profession I am familiar with and experienced in. I have worked with other background artists at William Drake, Inc. but would now like to work for a prestigious animation company such as yours.

Can we meet in person to discuss what I can bring to this job? I'm available to start work immediately upon being hired and would like an opportunity to show you my portfolio.

Please phone me at 777-777-7777 so we can arrange a date and time that suits your schedule. Thanks very much for considering me for the position.
