Sample 1:- You Are Going to Another Country to Study
How are you? It has been so long since we talked with each other. You will be thrilled to know that I am coming to join you in Canada. I seek your favor to find out a part-time job for me as you live there so you can help me easily.
Let me tell you that I have a very tight schedule throughout the year except on weekends. I have theory classes for six months, and for the rest of the months, I have training in a disabled school. After completion of this diploma, I may avail myself of the opportunity to carry out research for the welfare of mentally retarded children. I think it will open a new door for me.
In addition, I want a part-time job to bear my expenses. As I can work only at weekends, the earning of these two days is enough to cover my transport charges. If I worked during weekdays, I would have no time left to study. To get good grades, it is essential for me to invest more time and study. I believe the job at weekends is a good option.
Will you do a favor for me to ascertain a job? As you are in the post of a manager, you can appoint me to your company as a marketing executive. I have experience as a salesperson, and good communication skills are the main requirement for this type of job. Apart from it, I can work as a driver in your company. I have all the essential documents for this job, so I think you would definitely help me.
Eagerly waiting for your reply.

I am glad to let you know that I have been accepted to the university I have always dreamt about. Yes, you are right. I got a scholarship for my master’s degree at University XYZ. The best part about this university is that it’s just 5 KM from your location, and I am excited to meet you as we can catch up almost anytime.
However, I am writing this to ask you for a favor as my classes are scheduled in the evening, which means I would have a good amount of time during the morning and afternoon. I would like to utilize it by getting a part-time job that would help me with my finances.
You are very well aware of my family’s financial situation, and I would not like to overburden my parents with my finances as well. I would forever be grateful to you if you could help me in this regard.
I would like to know where I can apply for part-time work. Is there legal or prior permission that I need to take from my university? What’s the process for applying for part-time work? I do recall when we had a conversation last time was also a part-timer; It would be grating if you could recommend me to your friends and families in case anyone is aware of any openings.
I will wait for your reply, as I plan to travel in September. Any help or advice prior to that could be very helpful. See you soon.
