Mr. Frank Bower
Hiring Manager
Bower Wood Works
64 Slauson Street
Anyplace, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Bower:

My experience as a bench carpenter spans nine years-three for a manufacturing company and six doing free-lance projects. When I saw your posting on JobBankUSA for two bench carpenters willing to work part-time, I decided to write this cover letter. I am ready to reduce my working hours but still want to remain in the field, so this job sounds ideal for me.

I am well acquainted with the various tasks of this kind of work, including assembling precut and prefabricated wooden parts to form complete units and using woodworking hand and power tools. I also read blueprints, shop drawings, and follow written instructions to determine the method and sequence of the assembly of various parts.

If you wish to meet to discuss this job, please phone me at 695-888-8756 and I'll arrange to come to your office at your convenience any weekday afternoon. Thank you for considering my cover letter and giving me a chance to win this job.

Sincerely,


Dick Dirkson
