Dear Sir,

Your advertisement in today's "Newspaper name' offers me just the job I am looking for. You say it is a minor job with low salary, but since the prospects are good for a really capable and resourceful person, I wish to offer my services for it irrespective of my high qualifications.

Having graduated myself from Agra University in 19- with high second class, I joined …………………………(company name) as a Stock and Sales Clerk. In this capacity, I was responsible for stocking and issuing goods and keeping accounts of the incom­ing and outgoing stores besides waiting on customers. I gained a very valuable experience in dealing with people. In ……………(year) my services were retrenched as I was the last person employed and the management wanted to economize owing to a little fall in their business. A fortnight after the retirement I’ve got the job of a Salesman with …………………………(company name), and I am still working with them. In this company, besides working on the counter, I have quite of ten been asked to go out in the market for booking orders which I have done very successfully. Just within an year and a half of my service, my present employers have raised my salary by Rs. 1000 per month. But since the volume of their business is too small they are unable to offer me good prospects,

I am 26 years old with sound physique.

Should you please give me a chance of meeting you, I shall impress upon you the forces of my desire to take up this job and continue in it, till you are pleased to put me higher.

Yours faithfully,
