Mr. Hal Lambert,

Dear Mr. Lambert:

My experience in the dance industry spans ten years. I spent the first five assisting two dance critics by researching the biographical data of specific dancers and the last five writing columns following dance performances.

Today, through this cover letter, I am responding to your listing on JobBankUSA.com for a dance critic. I can start work immediately upon being hired and will bring to the task my best effort.

If you'd like to see samples of my previous columns, I'd be happy to come to your office at your convenience to discuss the duties and responsibilities you expect from the person you hire.

Please give me a call at 897-879-9999 and let me know the day and hour that work for you, and I'll be there. Thank you for your time and attention.
