To Whom It May Concern:

I am seeking a position with a company that will allow me to use my accumulated knowledge and abilities to its fullest. Even though I have nearly 20 years experience in the printing industry I am open to learning a new profession. Due to my ability to learn quickly I work well with little supervision. I am a team player and a hard worker and I feel that my skills and work ethic would benefit your company greatly.

Thank you for your time and consideration, I look forward to hearing from you soon.
