Dear Mr. Boothe:
Thank you for posting the opening for a funeral director on JobBankUSA.com. This is a position I feel ready to fill, as I am trained and licensed in funeral management. I have worked with various funeral directors as an apprentice over the past ten years and have a solid resume of experiences that display my ability and interest in this work. I am especially sensitive to the bereaved families and am known for my compassionate communication. I also have hands-on experience with the day-to-day operation of a funeral home.
I am available to assume this position on December 1 as you requested. Could I schedule a meeting with you to go over my resume and to learn more about Clarke Funeral Home and your requirements for the person you hire?
I'll be happy to come to your office any weekday morning before noon. Please call me on my cell phone: 675-980-9898 so we can arrange a meeting time that works for you. I appreciate your reading my cover letter and considering me for the position.
