Mr. Thomas Slovak
Hiring Manager
Preston and Miller Civil Engineering Company
89 Third Street
Landsville, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Slovak:

I was so pleased to find your listing for a civil drafter on JobBankUSA.com. That is the one job I have been eager to locate. I enjoy being part of the infrastructure of a city by drawing bridges, highways, and other major construction. I'm ready to start. But first you'd probably want to meet me in person to see my drawings and to discuss what you'd like from the civil drafters you hire for your upcoming projects.

I'll be happy to meet you any morning before 10:00. 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. By the way, I recently received the Drafter of the Year Award by my fellows at the American Drafting Association for outstanding work during 2005.
