Sample Answer:

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am writing to apply for the position advertised by you in the daily Sunday times on 5th Dec 2014. I am Preeti Ghuraiya, 22years old student, studying general management at Garden City College,  Bangalore.

I am originally from Delhi and can fluently speak English and Hindi. This job opportunity looks very interesting and something in-line with my prior work experience.
I have 1 year of part-time experience as receptionist and front desk operator with Hotel Holiday Inn in Delhi from June 2012 till July 2013. I was responsible for interacting with clients, handling client check-in and checkout. I also have some experience as a waitress. I feel this experience would help me in this job as well and I will be able to learn things fast.

The job description in the newspaper does not give details of the duties to be performed. Would you be able to let me know, what duties will I be required to do and if you require any specific skills? I will be available immediately to start and can work in evening 7.00 PM to 10.00 PM every day and during the weekends.

Please let me know if you need further information. I will be able to provide references of my experience.

Looking forward to your response.

Yours sincerely,

[ by - Preeti]

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing this letter in reference to your advertisement on ABC for hiring a weekend support staff in your hotel. I am 20 years old and live in the southern area of the city. I am studying Hotel Management at MVT Institute and will graduate next year. I am looking for a weekend job which can add values to my resume and where I can contribute from experience and knowledge.

I have 1 year's experience as an Account specialist in Holiday Inn, Delhi. I was responsible for bookings, arranging team dinners, customising rooms to check-out for selected corporate clients. I am well versed with Hotel's day to day operations.

The advertisement was very brief and did not mention about job responsibilities. Can you please share the job description, any specific skill set you are looking for?
I will be happy to answer in person or over phone.

Yours sincerely,
