Dear Mr. Stinson:

I appreciated seeing your listing for a residence counselor on JobBankUSA.com for one of your campus dorms. I am currently looking for such work as I am a graduate student in a Master of Arts program and want to live on campus during my enrollment. I have been trained in counseling services and I have served with other residence counselors during my undergraduate work at Pittman University in Northern Michigan.

I'm writing this cover letter today to ask if I might come in for a brief interview so we can meet in person and talk more in detail about what you expect from those you hire for this work. You might also wish to ask questions after you've had a moment to read my attached resume.

If you'd like to set up an appointment please phone me at 234-567-9898. Thank you for considering my application and I hope to hear from you soon.
