Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter in response to an advertisement that you recently published in a local newspaper, seeking for job holders to come forward and talk to your students about how it feels to have a job. I think that it is quite an interesting proposition, and I would be more than happy to talk to your students.

I would like to talk about the initial challenges that I faced when I started my current job as a physical instructor at a physical training college. After all, the first few weeks at a job can become really overwhelming for anybody. Besides, I would also like to talk about how I learned to keep young and restless people motivated in a tough working environment. I am sure that your students would be interested in my job since it would allow them to remain healthy, both physically and mentally, without even doing anything extra outside of their regular jobs.

I am free the entire day next Friday on 27th of September, and I would be excited and happy to stand in front of your students and share my experience with them.

Yours faithfully,

John Young

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing in response to an online advert that specifies that you are looking for someone with an executive job position to talk to your high-school pupils about different aspects of having a job. It is an exciting proposition, and I would be delighted to discuss it with those fresh minds.

I would like to talk about the necessary preparations for applying for a job, and then the initial challenges that I faced in my first job as a software engineer. After all, the first three months of a job become overwhelming for anybody. Besides, I would like to talk about how I learned to work on different technologies to developed new software that is used by renowned companies. I would also explain how much teamwork helps employees do excel in their workplace.

I am sure that your students would be interested in my job since it involves learning new technologies and remaining up-to-date with the latest market trends. Additionally, they can get a chance to travel to different parts of the world as per the project requirements.

So, I am free on any Monday next month, and I would be excited and happy to stand in front of your students and share my experience with them.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Reva Chowdhury
