Mr. Kevin Conrad,
Hiring Manager
The Newtown News Gazette
42 First Street
Anytown, USA 30001

Dear Mr. Conrad:

With this cover letter, I am applying for the job you posted on JobBankUSA.com for experienced editorial writers whose views are compatible with a conservative approach to religion, politics, and local government.

I know you are looking for an editorial writer who specializes in politics and one who is competent in expressing views about the local scene. I could do either one as they both interest me. I am also a trained professional writer, having received my undergraduate degree from Compton School of Journalism.

May I drop by your office next week between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. to discuss this position with you and to show you samples of some of my columns? Please call 222-222-2222 to confirm. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for reading my cover letter.
