Dear Mr. Hofer,
Today, I’m writing this cover letter to apply for the Deckhand opening you advertised on www.hotjobs.com. I feel well qualified for this position, and have attached my resume for your perusal.
I know I would make an excellent employee as Deckhand for American Commercial Lines Inc, as I have over six years working on American Electric Power for over nine ships in the fleet. My main responsibilities were to maintain cleanliness and service for guests at all times. I value the experience working at sea brings me, and I work hard to keep that career current. I am professional at all times, and work very hard.
I would love the chance to meet with you to discuss my history further. Would you allow me an interview sometime next week? I can be reached at (555)-555-5555 to arrange for it. I thank you kindly for your time and consideration.
Resume Attached as MS Word Document
