Dear Mr. Michaelson:

I noticed the posting on JobBankUSA.com for employment as a lock stitch pocket setter. I have been in the garment industry, specifically coats and jackets, for ten years, most of that time operating a lock stitch sewing machine to join cut parts to form pockets and to set the pockets into or onto a garment, according to style and markings. My work also has included topstitching pocket edges or attaching welting, piping, or trim to pockets.

The purpose of my cover letter today is to apply for that job. I know you have standards for the lock stitch pocket setters you work with and I assure you I will meet them. If we could get together in person, I would be happy to answer any questions and also to find out your expectations for the person you hire.

I can begin work immediately following your decision. I'm available for an interview weekday afternoons at whatever time suits you. Please call 888-888-8888 to arrange a date. Thank you for considering me for the job and for taking time to read my letter and resume.

Sincerely,


Raya Johnson
