Dear Mr. Dotson:

Thank you for posting the opening for a personal aide on JobBankUSA.com. This is a position I am well qualified to undertake. I am a retired nurse's aide looking for part-time work in a field I am comfortable with and knowledgeable about.

I am good with people, skilled at assisting the elderly or disabled with daily living activities such as feeding, dressing, hygiene, etc.

I would like to start work January 1 or sooner. Could I schedule a meeting with you to go over my resume and to learn more about your company and kind of people who call on the services you provide through the personal aides you hire?

I'll be happy to come to your office any weekday morning before noon. Please call me on my cell phone: 675-980-9898 so we can arrange a meeting time that works for you. I appreciate your reading my cover letter and considering me as a potential employee.
