Mr. Wally Samuels
Cathy's Diner

Hopeville, WA 22222

Dear Mr. Samuels:

It was exciting to visit JobBankUSA.com and to find your posting for a short order cook for Cathy's Diner. I have worked in this capacity for two other diners over the past nine years. Today I'm apply for the job you have advertised because I'm now living near the diner and am in need of a part-time position doing what I know and like best-cooking and working with other short order cooks. My specialty, by the way, is chicken.

Would you like to meet in person so we can discuss the specific requirements of this job? I can drop by the diner any weekday afternoon from 3:00 on. Call me at 789-675-9999 to set up a time that works best for your schedule. Thank you for being willing to read this cover letter and consider getting together with me.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,


Ralph Hughes
