In reply to your advertisement in today’s “Newspaper Name),” I request to be considered for the post of a Senior Clerk in your firm and as desired by you, I give below a short description of my qualifications and experience.
After having my schooling in High School Name, Delhi, up to my high school certificate examination, I joined College Name, Location, from where I graduated in …………………(year) securing high second class.
Both in school and college career I took keen interest in extra-curricular activities.
Since my early age I was helping my father in his business and occasionally got some tips in maintaining files from him. Also during my college vacations I maintained files at my father’s shop, received and dispatched letters.
Unfortunately the business of my father has been closed down recently because of a dispute amongst partners and I have not been able to devote my attention to my father’s business. I, therefore, consider it worthwhile approaching your esteemed concern for the present post.
In view of the fact that I have already picked up good knowledge about office routine, I am confident that I will be able to perform my duties to your entire satisfaction and will be an asset to your firm. If you will be good enough to offer me a chance, I would do my best to win your confidence by means of hard work, perseverance and devotion to duty.
Hoping for favourable reply,
