Dear Mr. Prescott:

Today I am writing this cover letter to introduce myself and to apply for the position of municipal clerk, which you posted on JobBankUSA.com. I have experience in this field, preparing dockets, securing information for judges, and preparing agendas. I did such work for the past decade in the municipal court in Bartonville.

I'm available any morning next week to discuss the duties of the municipal clerks you work with, and to find out if I'm the one to fill this opening. Are you free to do so? If so, please call me at 456-777-8989 to set up a time.

I appreciate your considering my resume and reading this cover letter.
