Dear Mr. Bird:

I am writing this cover letter to apply for the opening you posted on JobBankUSA.com for a part-time marriage and family therapist to fill the current gap two evenings a week and Saturdays. That schedule would work well for me, a mother of two school-aged children. I have a state license as an MFCC and also an M.A. degree from Collins University.

I specialize in interventions and in cases where substance abuse has interfered with family life. I do individual, couple, group, and family counseling.

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: 785-897-3434 to set up an interview at your convenience. Thank you for considering my resume and this cover letter.
