Dear Mr. Roland:

I am composing this cover letter today to apply for the opening of chief petroleum engineer, which you posted on JobBankUSA.com. I have eight years of experience in the petroleum field and now have my degree in engineering. I believe I could bring expertise and creative thinking to this position.

While studying this field, I worked well with the chief petroleum engineers who oversaw my performance and listened to my input as we sought to solve problems and find ways to improve the existing methods.

May I meet with you to talk over this position and what I can bring to your company? If you're interested, please phone me at 678-456-3465 to set up a meeting when it works for you. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you for considering me for this job.
