Dear Mr. Smith:

Re: Assistant Cook Position

I am writing to apply for the position of Assistant Cook as advertised in today's issue of the Daily Planet. My practical experience and specialized high school training enable me to fulfill the position competently. I am very determined to develop a career in restaurant cooking.

As you can see from my attached resume, I am graduating from a provincial Career Preparation program in Cook Training. I have had various positions and work experience placements in the food preparation industry, and have enjoyed the work tremendously. In addition, I have enrolled in a microwave cooking course that will be held on Saturday mornings starting in September. I have good basic skills and will continue working toward my eventual goal of professional chef.

I look forward to attending an interview, at your convenience, to further discuss my qualifications. I am available for part-time work immediately and for full-time work after graduation on June 19th. You can reach me at 555-1212 from 3:30pm to 10:30pm, or by message at the same number any other time. Thank you for your attention.
