Dear Mr. levy:
Is there a place at First Security for a person with a thorough business education, experience in the business world, and an earnest desire to accept responsibility and handle challenges? If so, I believe that I can meet your need.
On December 20, 1988, I received a BBA degree from Brigham Young University besides courses in accounting, management, and marketing. I have taken speech, industrial psychology, and business communications to better prepare myself to work effectively with people.
As an employee at Sears, Roebuck in Provo, Utah, I have performed various duties from receiving clerk to cashier to candidate for management trainee. I believe that my supervisor there (see the enclosed resume) will tell you that I was a dependable, conscientious worker. My part time work of approximately 25 hours a week enabled me to pay the major part of my college expenses.
In addition to education and experience, Mr. Levy, my college activities have prepared me to work well with people. As senior vice president in charge of recruiting for my professional fraternity, I organized a number of educational and social meetings for prospective members. During the time I served as chairman of recruiting, we pledged more men and women than we had for the previous three years. Besides the qualifications mentioned, I would bring to your bank a desire to succeed and a willingness to work hard. Please look over the enclosed resume, which provides more details about my background. If you think I could serve First Security in an entry level position, please call me. I will arrange to come in for an interview at your convenience.
Yours very truly,

Dear Ms. Hendrady:
I would like to be considered for the post of sales representative with your corporation, as advertised in the May 28 edition of the China Daily.
I had successfully completed the courses directly related to marketing four years ago. In these courses, I had acquired skills in marketing, management relations and communication. This background enables me to work effectively with employees, customers and the general public.
As a graduate from the Foreign Trade University, I feel very confident that I can meet your special requirements that the candidate must have a high command of English, for I had got an excellent score in TOEFL. Furthermore, I learned to communicate well with English speaking customers when I worked as a salesman with the Great Wall Corporation Limited.
The main reason for changing my employment is to gain more experience with a company of outstanding international reputation such as yours. I believe that my education and experience will prove useful for work in your office.Enclosed are my resume and three photos. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss my qualification with you. Would you please write to let me know a convenient time for you to talk with me?
