Dear Mr. Barber:

I've been working as a recreational therapist for over ten years-in schools, community rec centers, the YMCA, and summer camps. Now I am interested in a full-time position offered by your center. I saw the posting on JobBankUSA.com and knew it was the job for me.

I have a special interest in the elderly and would focus my entire attention during work hours on encouraging your clients to enhance the quality of their lives with focused and structured (but also enjoyable) recreation.

My resume speaks for itself, just as your organization speaks for itself. I look forward to talking with you in person if you'd like to meet to discuss my experience and ability for the job. Thank you for considering my cover letter and resume. I hope to join your staff as one of the two full-time recreational therapists you plan to hire.

Please call me on my cell phone: 888-888-8888 to arrange an interview. I'm eager to meet you and to hear how I can bring my skills to the job you wish to fill.
