Dear Mr. Green:

I am in the market for a job as a financial analyst and I know that your company is of the highest quality—one I wish to work for. My experience includes five years on a team of financial analysts at Bank of Commonwealth in Hollywood, Florida. I was chief analyst my last year there.

Since my relocation (after getting married) to Any Town I am looking for new employment and that is the reason for this cover letter.

I hope you will consider meeting me to talk about how I can bring my talent and experience and 'savvy' to this opening. Please call me at 678-567-0909 to set up an appointment. I would welcome coming to your office at a time that is convenient for you.
