Dear Mr. Porter:

I was pleased to find your listing for a bridge and lock tender on JobBankUSA.com. That is the one job I have been eager to locate. I have experience in this field from my years in the marine industry and as a member of the Coast Guard.

I can begin work immediately. But first you'd probably want to meet me in person to discuss my background and qualifications for dealing with the public and for handling safety issues and monitoring safe passage of sea-going vessels.

I'll be happy to meet you any morning before noon. Please call me at 675-980-9898 to arrange a meeting time that fits in with your schedule. Thank you for taking a moment to read my cover letter and consider it.
