Citywide Criminal Investigators
P.O. Box 567
Any Town, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Strange:

I am writing this cover letter to apply for the opening you listed on JobBankUSA.com for a special agent in criminal investigations. I have two years of experience in this field, having moved from assistant agent to special agent in that time.

I have an aptitude for discerning whether or not suspected criminals have violated the law to the point of prosecution. I have been recognized for my work and am currently an employee in good standing.

May I meet with you in person to discuss this position at your company? I'm ready to make a move and would like it to be to your organization where I can work with other special agents.

Please phone me at 678-456-3465 to set up a meeting at a time that works for you if you'd like to talk about what I can bring to this position. I look forward to getting together with you.

Thank you for considering me for this position and for taking time to read my cover letter.


Louis Washington
