When I saw a listing for this position on JobBankUSA.com this week, I knew I wanted to apply for the job right away. That is the purpose of my cover letter today.

My resume lists my specific experiences and training, but I'd like to meet with you at your convenience to talk about what you expect and want from the rail yardmasters you hire for your company.
