Dear Mr. Preston:

I've been prepping and cooking food items for several years. I plan to be a chef someday. Today I am writing this cover letter to apply for your ad for a food preparation worker. The hours and wages you listed will suit me perfectly since I go to college during the day. An evening job is just what I am looking for.

I'm aware that food preparation workers wash, chop, cut, and set up various food items prior to serving customers. I am accomplished in all these tasks. May I stop by some late afternoon next week to discuss this position with you? I can begin work immediately upon your acceptance.

Please call me at 456-777-8989 to set up a time to get together.
