Dear Ms. Marshall:

My five years of experience as a news editor with Tulare Community Newspaper has prepared me for the job you've advertised on JobBankUSA.com for two news editors-one for the morning edition and one for the evening edition.

I'm aware of the responsibility of laying out the paper before printing and making sure everything is in its correct location and all editors have turned in their copy in a timely manner.

May I meet you in person to talk about this job? I'm available at your convenience any weekday after 3:00 p.m. Please phone me at 345-678-9999 to arrange a time that works for your schedule. Thank you for considering my cover letter and reading my resume.
