More for less. That's what everyone's looking for, whether it's in stores or on the job market. The problem is, when you're looking for the right person to hire, it's hard to find people who don't want more money for doing less work. Happily, that's where I come in.

I've spent <years> years working in <your field>, the last <years spent> with <company name>, and you can ask anyone who worked with me there about my ability to work long hours to get the job done right. I'm not afraid of hard work, and I know that it's the people who put in the hours who get the rewards.

That's what I'm offering <company name>: a professional who will earn every cent with honest effort. I don't know if you're currently hiring, but if you think you might have an opening suited to my skills in the future, I'd love to send you a resume. If you'd like, give me a call at <phone number> and let's talk. I think you'll find it worth your while.

I look forward to hearing from you. Take care.


Jim Karter
