Sample Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Sebastian Holmes, looking for a part-time job in a graphics designing company and would like you to forward my CV to suitable companies.

I have recently finished my high school diploma and would like to gain some professional experience. One of my high school friends, who recently managed a job through your agency, has recommended me your agency. I have a graphics design diploma certificate and experience in designing website mockups. I am passionate about designing websites, banners, advertisements, landing pages and logos, and looking forward to working for a company that works in the web designing industry.

Since experience and not remuneration is my priority, I would like to work for a renowned company that solely works in the web and graphics designing industry with a credible portfolio. I will get admitted to a college in a month or two, and that is why flexible office time is another aspect I am looking for.

I hope you would have a look at my CV, which I am also sending to you in the same envelope, and help me find a suitable job that I am so eagerly looking forward to having.

Yours faithfully,

Sebastian Holmes


Model Answer 2:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have heard about your employment agency from my friend who recently got a two-year work placement at a Japanese company, courtesy of your wonderful efforts. Not to mention, of course, after hearing the success story from my friend, I have also decided to reach you and request you find a suitable part-time job for me.

To introduce myself a little, I am a Greek national and currently studying at a university as a final-year student, majoring in Accounting Information Systems, here in Montreal. My current GPA is 3.5 if it really matters.

As for what sort of job I want, an office job, preferably as an Accounting Clerk or Data Entry Operator would be a very ideal one. I should also have no problem working as a part-time Office Administrator, provided that the schedules, I am offered, do not conflict with my class schedules.

Now regarding my experience and skills, I have a very good typing speed, and I am very much computer literate. Besides, I am also good at multitasking, and I can speak little French, other than having a very good fluency in the English language.

I hope you would help me find a part-time job as soon as possible. Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Zoe Laskari
