J.D. Howard Publishing Company

Any Town, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Block:

I am writing this cover letter to apply for the opening of dictionary editor, which you posted on JobBankUSA.com. I have had five years of experience as a writer and editor with a special emphasis on dictionaries and other research tools while working at ABC Research Publications, Inc.

I especially enjoy researching information about new words, their origins, and usage, and then reviewing the definitions before publication in a dictionary.

May I meet with you in person to discuss this position and what I can bring to your editorial department as one of the dictionary editors you hire? If you'd like to do this, please phone me at 678-456-3465 to set up a time that works for you. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for considering me for this job.
