Dear Mr. McDonald:

With this cover letter I am applying for the job of shop tailor, which I saw posted on JobBankUSA.com. I have three years of experience doing alterations for my mother-in-law in her home-based business. Now I would like to expand my opportunities and bid for this opening at Community Tailor.

If you'd like to set up a time to meet I would welcome coming to the shop and talking over the duties you assign to the shop tailors who work for you. I know you have a thriving business. I'd like to be part of it.

Please call me on my cell phone: 888-888-8888 and give me a time and date when you could meet. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for reading my cover letter and resume.
