Dear Mrs. Hughes:

Your listing on JobBankUSA.com for an information clerk for the city library impressed me. You covered everything you need in such an employee. It seemed you were describing me! I am a fact-gatherer, a person who can help others find the information they need, and someone who is able to communicate well with patrons. In addition, I come to the library each week myself, so I know my way around and could easily steer people to the correct aisle or floor for the books or magazines they are looking for as well as help them narrow their search using the library computer system.

I'm known to be a committed employee. I have good customer service skills and I love helping others find what they need. Among information clerks, I believe I would be one of the best. Pardon me for boasting!

Would you like to meet to talk over this job? I'd enjoy speaking with you in person. Please call me on my cell phone: 123-456-7891 to set up an interview at your convenience. Thank you for your kind attention to my cover letter and my qualifications.
