Sample Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to express my interest to get registered with your employment agency as I am looking for a suitable part-time job. I am hoping you would enlist me in your database and notify me of suitable job announcements and forward my resume to prospective employers.

I am Hansen Lee, an international student at the University of Westminster and my major is Business Administration. I am originally from Japan and will be staying in London for the next couple of years. To support my education cost and to gain some job experience, I am seeking a suitable part-time position.

I can work as an administrative assistant, customer experience manager or as a salesperson in a retail shop. I can spare time from 4.30 pm onwards on weekdays and full-time on weekends.

I have previously worked as a customer support officer in a call centre in Japan and as a sales executive in a superstore in London. I have attached my Curriculum Vitae with this letter for your kind consideration which further details my education and work experience.

I look forward to hearing from you and getting the details process to register with your job agency. Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Hansen Lee

Sample Answer 2:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have heard a lot about your employment agency because of your dedicated service to help people find employment. So, I am hoping that you would also help me find a suitable part-time job.

But, before anything else, let me introduce myself. I am currently living in Kuala Lumpur and have just finished my Master’s degree in travel and tourism management from the University of Malay. And, now I would like to work as a part-time employee at an established tourist information centre. 

Anyway, as far as my experience and skills are concerned, I have worked as a part-time customer service representative at a very busy and upscale 4-star hotel in the city where I am currently living now. Besides, I have also worked as a Cashier at a restaurant when I was finishing my Bachelor degree. Then, I can also speak the Chinese language, in addition to having great communication skills in English.

So, based on my credentials and skills above, please help me find a suitable part-time job for me, preferably in the city where I am currently living now.

Yours faithfully,

Mohamed Zikri
