Dear Mr. Brewster:

This morning on JobSearchJimmy.com I saw your post for a job opening as the head chef in your popular restaurant by the bay. I am very interested in being interviewed for that position as I have six years as assistant head chef at Seaside Restaurant and am ready now to bid for the position of lead chef.

I'm trained and certified after completing my culinary education and training at Carlton Culinary Arts School in West View. And I have on the job experience that will take me right into the role of leadership at a major restaurant such as yours.

I'm known for my creative main dishes and specialty sides, including tempting treats featuring vegetables and fruits. I've also received awards for my skills and ingenuity from The American Society of Culinary Arts.

For more information please see my enclosed resume.

I would welcome meeting you in person or speaking on the phone if you have any questions or would like to tell me more about what you are looking for in the lead chef you hire.

Please call me any weekday or evening at 777-777-7777 to agree on a date for an interview if you'd like to talk further.

Thank you for reading this cover letter and my resume and references. I hope you will give me the opportunity to show you what I can do to enhance and increase your customer base at Charley's Steak and Ale.

Sincerely,

Peter Job Searcher
