Dear Mr. Johannsen:

I saw the posting on JobBankUSA.com for employment as a database administrator. I have been in this industry for five years as a free-lance worker. Now I would like to work with a team of database administrators from home or office. I am writing this cover letter to apply for that opening. I am interested in your specialty--high tech data. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration with an emphasis on database software.

If we could meet in person, I could show you what I have accomplished and how I might bring some new ideas to Norris.

I can begin work immediately following your decision to hire me. I'm available for an interview weekday afternoons from 2:00 to 5:00 pm. Please call 888-888-8888 to arrange a date and time that works for you. Thank you for considering me for the job.
