Dear Mr. Morris:

Thank you for posting your need for a recreation director on JobBankUSA.com. I'm qualified for this position and am writing this cover letter today to apply for the job.

I consider myself a 'people person,' and feel comfortable directing activities and overseeing the facilitators in charge of the various events and classes.

If you're interested in discussing this position with me in person, I'd be happy to come to your office to talk it over and to show you some of the things I've accomplished at the Riverside Recreation Center in Newplace. I have been recognized statewide among other recreation directors for the Governor's Award of Excellence in Community Service.

To pursue this further, please call me on my cell phone: 234-567-8989 to set up a time we can get together. I look forward to meeting you in person.
