Dear Mr. Best:

I saw your posting on JobBankUSA.com for employment as a retail personnel manager. I am interested in competing for this position. I imagine many qualified retail personnel managers will apply to fill this opening, so I am writing today to 'toss my hat' in the ring of contenders.

I have worked in retail as a salesperson, as a department manager, and as head of customer service while employed at Newberry's Department Store. Now I would like to work in personnel. I'd be happy to meet with you if you'd like to get to know me and to discuss the duties of the person you hire. Please call 333-345-6787 for an appointment and I'll respond right away.

I appreciate your time in looking over this cover letter and my resume. I hope to hear from you soon.


Lawrence Van
