Dear Sir or Madam,
Having heard that there is a need for students of English major in your company, I’d like to render my services for the post you are offering.I am a 23-year-old undergraduate expecting to graduate by July 2007 from the Department of English, Central South University, with a bachelor degree majoring in English.
In the past three years, I have participated in several activities concerning the application of English. In July 2005 I used to work as an office assistant in an Import & Export Company for two weeks, during which I have done some translation and reception work that enabled me to learn a great deal which couldn't be taught in class. What's more, June 2006 saw my translation efforts made for the tender materials of English version of some construction companies. I think my education and previous experiences will enable me to offer helpful services. The enclosed resume will tell you more about my details, and my references, to whom I can refer you as to my personality and ability, is available upon request. I shall be pleased to come to your office for a personal interview at any time that is convenient to you.
