Dear Sir or Madam,
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing this letter in response to a recent vacancy announcement at your museum in which you have asked for people to do part-time voluntary or unpaid work. I would like to work for your museum as a volunteer, and I am hoping that you would give me the opportunity.
I am interested in availing this great opportunity because I think that it would allow me to learn some great skills to have a better career in the future. Besides, it would also help me understand many important parts of my country’s history which I would probably never know otherwise.
Regarding my skills, I have good computer skill, and I also know how to work well in a team environment with other people. Besides, I have also taken an art history class in high school before to help me understand and appreciate the value of artworks. On top of that, I also live close to your museum which would really make it easy for me to commute. So, if you choose to hire me for this voluntary position, I will work hard to add value to your team.
I am available to work every day from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm except on Sunday, and if you decide to hire me, I can start right away.
I am hoping to hear a positive response from you.
I am writing in connection with a recent vacancy announcement for voluntary work at your museum. I am interested in getting the job and serve my position with dedication and hard work.
Currently, I am a student at Victoria University and pursuing my Master's degree in International Cultural Studies. In the past, I have worked at the Royal BC Museum in a voluntary position for toe months during my summer break in 2019. I have both the practical and academic skills which I believe exactly match with the position announced.
I have gained lots of new skills and knowledge about the operation and management of a museum. For instance, I have detailed knowledge about the aboriginal history in BC which I can put to use to explain visitors and answer questions they might have. Also, I am very creative and can bring new ideas to life which can add value to the museum.
I am looking forward to meeting you in person for a personal interview. If I am selected, I would be available to start working from the 10th of December 2020.
