Mr. John Smith,
National Inc.,
257, Park Avenue South,
New York, NY 12345-6789.

Dear Mr. Smith,

My outgoing personality, my sales experience, and my recently completed education make me a strong candidate for a position as an insurance broker for National Inc.

I recently graduated from the National University, New York, with a degree in marketing, where I was president of both the Future Business Leaders of America and the American Marketing Association.

Although a recent graduate, I am not a typical new graduate. I attended school in Chicago, New Jersey and Boston. And I've put myself through these schools by working such jobs as radio advertising sales, newspaper subscription sales, and bartending, all of which enhanced my formal education.

I have the maturity, skills, and abilities to embark on a career in insurance brokering, and I'd like to do this in Manhattan, my home state.

I will be in New York at the end of this month, and I'd like very much to talk with you concerning a position at National Inc. I will follow up this letter with a phone call to see if I can arrange a time to meet with you.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Richard Anderson,
Senior Student, Marketing,
National University,

1) Resume
2) Certificate of Honor "Future Business Leaders of America"

Dear teacher,
Could you show me the way to write a letter, the differences between American style and English style?

Dear teacher,
I would very much like to practice my English writing skill daily. But I've found out the best method. I've just use the way of writing blog, but it seems not very effective because there are few people visiting my blog. I want my entries to be glanced by others to find out whether they contained mistakes or not. So, what should I do in this case?

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
