Model Answer:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am an Indian national from New Delhi and at present I am studying for a Master’s degree in English Literature here, at the University of Delhi, where I have been for the last four months.

I am looking for a part-time job and I wonder if you can help me. Probably, I would like an office job, perhaps working as a secretary, office administrator or typist. I can only work during the afternoons and at weekends as my university studies occupy most of the day. I would be ready to start immediately.

I am a competent typist and I am computer-literate. In addition, I speak Hindi and French fluently and I have been learning English since my school. While I studied for my degree, I worked as a part-time office manager for an import-export firm in my hometown. In recent years, I have also had temporary summer job as a hotel receptionist.

I am looking forward to hearing from you,

Yours faithfully,
Raghu Ram
