Mr. Arthur Scope
Hiring Manager
West Side Construction Company
Wilson's Cove, CA 99999

Dear Mr. Scope:

On JobBankUSA.com I saw your need for an excavating machine operator with training and experience. I can offer both. I completed the required three-year apprenticeship and the 144 hours of classroom work and I've been on job sites doing this work for the past two years.

I was known for my ability to reason and make educated judgments, to make precise movements with speed and accuracy, and move my hands easily and skillfully while operating the equipment.

I'm sending this cover letter today to let you know I'm open for employment and can begin as early as next week. Can we meet for an interview to discuss further what you want from the excavating machine operators you hire? I will come in to your office at your convenience any weekday afternoon after 3:00 p.m. Give me a call at 879-567-9090 and I'll respond immediately.

I appreciate your taking time to consider me for the job.
