Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to express my interest in working in the city museum shop during the holidays. I read about it in yesterday’s newspaper named ‘The Tribune’.
Let me inform you that I am a resident, and I have done my master’s in history. Exploring new places and investigating old treasures of the past are my favourite activities.
Suffice it to say that I have five years of experience as a guide. My soft skills are an asset for me to do such kinds of jobs. Besides, being a student of history, I have abundant knowledge about traditional culture. I can add my bookish and practical knowledge to make people learn about this museum, which will be a sure success to make people visit this place frequently.
To be honest, outgoing personalities like me want such places to broaden the horizon of my knowledge. Also, I have a break of 6 months, so I can utilize this time to learn and earn. You would be pleased to know that I can come early or go late as I have no time issue. So, proximity to this place prompts me to join it.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
