Dear Ms. Chan:

My experience as a restaurant cook spans five years. I started in the fast food industry and then moved up to full cook at two oriental restaurants in Chicago, Illinois. Today I am writing this cover letter to apply for the position of restaurant cook posted on JobBankUSA.com. I am aware of the duties of restaurant cooks, including ordering supplies, planning menus and specials, and preparing food for banquets and meetings.

May I meet you in person to talk more about this job and to show you photos of some of my menus on display at the other restaurants where I worked previously? I'm available at your convenience any weekday except Thursday. Please phone me at 345-678-9999 to arrange a get-together that works for your schedule.
