Dear Mrs. Moffitt,
I would like to apply for the Typist opening that was listed in the Seattle Times last Thursday. It is a position that I am well qualified for as you can see from my attached resume. I know that you will find me to be adept at this job and that I would be an asset to your company.
While I do not have any formal education, I did complete high school typing courses with a 4.0 and I have over ten years of experience. I am proficient with all of the word processing packages including Word and WordPerfect. My typing speed is seventy words a minute and this is with perfect accuracy.
I have worked with a Dictaphone and can also take dictation through electronic voice files. I know that any industry requires a full team in order to be successful. This is why I know that I would be a vital member of the team at your company.
I would like the chance to speak with you further to get into more depth about what you need in a typist. I can also further expand on my experience and background at this time. I can be reached by calling (555)-555-5555.
