Dear Mr. Roberts:
I am responding to your ad in the Long Beach Press Telegram for a parttime assistant clerk in your main office. As you will see on my attached resume, I have completed two courses in keyboarding and word processing in high school, and can type 50 words per minute while transcribing from recordings. I received a Medal of Merit award as a sophomore in the Business Department. I have also been a student aid for two semesters in the Counseling Office.
Please note that I will be graduating in June and will then be available to increase my hours.
I am available for an interview anytime after school and may be reached at (562) 555-4321. I look forward to hearing from you.
