Dear Mr. Bearden:

Thank you for posting the opening for an index editor on JobBankUSA.com. This is a position I qualified to fill, as I have had five years of experience as one of two index editors at Santa Barbara Press before moving to this area.

I would like to start work November 1 or sooner, if possible. Could I schedule a meeting with you to go over my resume and to learn more about your company?

I'll be happy to come to your office any weekday morning. Please call me on my cell phone: 675-980-9898 so we can arrange a time that works for you. I appreciate your reading my cover letter and considering me for this job of index editor.
