Mr. Mike Matters,

Dear Mr. Matters:
I noticed your position for a funeral director posted in the www.socialserviceemployment.com job bank. To help me through college at St. Thomas, I worked at a local funeral home. Initially I worked part-time then in my sophomore year, I began to add more hours.
Upon graduation, I moved back to my hometown and was hired as assistant manager of one of the
Johnson Funeral Homes. Johnson Funeral Homes operates seven locations in five communities within a 50-mile radius. Over the years, I have worked at each from time to time.
I received my B. A. in Psychology in 2000. Amongst my several duties, I used this degree to console loved ones.
Unfortunately, Johnson Funeral Homes was acquired by a larger organization and their reorganization led to the closing of my location.
I believe an in-person meeting or interview would be a great way to discuss the requirements and expectations you may
have for this position. I would appreciate it if you would contact me at your earliest convenience. I have also enclosed my resume detailing my achievements for your review.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (555) 555-5555. I am somewhat flexible and with a days notice, I can meet with you.
Thank you for reading my letter. Please consider me for this position.
