Dear Mr. Larsen:

I have been a butcher for fifteen years. Today I am writing this cover letter in response to your posting on JobBankUSA.com for a full-time butcher to work in your shop and to train apprentice butchers.

I believe I qualify for the position you're offering and I would welcome speaking with you in person to find out your specific requirements for the individuals you hire.
