Dear Mr. Hibbs,
In reply to advertisement you placed in the San Diego Tribune newspaper, I would like to apply for the position of Group Leader. I request that you take the time to review this letter and my enclosed resume at your convenience. I know that my leadership abilities and my communication skills would put me in a position to excel with your company.
When I left my last employer, I had become Group Leader two years prior to that time. I know that I have the knowledge and the confidence to lead any group in the tasks that are given. I take the time to allow my team to voice their opinions and allow for a group discussion without seeming to lecture.
This teamwork means that I get more respect from my team which in turn means that they will work harder to get the task completed. In order to lead, you have to know how to follow first. For this reason, I know that I would be an asset to your company.
I know that a meeting would help you to understand my experience more fully. I can be reached by calling (555)-555-5555 or through emailing me at [email] I am available at any time to sit down and chat about our mutual future.
