Dear Mr./Mrs. Last Name:
The accompanying resume is in response to your listing in yesterday's Chicago Tribune for a loan officer.
I am especially interested in this position because my experience with the Small Business Administration has prepared me for understanding the financial needs and problems of the business community from the perspectives of both lenders and borrowers. I wish to be a part of your dynamic organization, and I am confident that my skills will benefit your company.
The current Chicago Tribune article detailing your quick response to a recent community crisis created an especially favorable impression of your company. I want to be part of your dynamic organization, and I am confident that my skills benefit your company.
I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss how my experience will best meet your needs. My ideas on how to improve small business financing may be of particular interest to you. I will call your office on the morning of March 17 to inquire if a meeting can be scheduled at a convenient time.
