Applying for a Job



When sending out a CV it should always be accompanied by a covering letter. The covering letter can be a major determinant of success. Here is an example of a typical covering letter sent in response to an advertisement in a newspaper. Another covering letter can be found here. If you are having problems writing a covering letter you might try posting your questions on the English Forum.

Dear Mr Fish,

Re: Fitness Instructor Vacancy

I am writing to apply for the job of Fitness Instructor, as advertised in Monday's Courier newspaper.. This is an ideal job for me given my enthusiasm for sport, my related experience and qualifications.

Sport and fitness training have always been important to me, which is why I chose to take a BTEC Diploma in Sports Science. I obtained distinctions in the Sports Anatomy & Physiology and Sports Injuries modules last year and am confident that I will get similar marks in Exercise Physiology, Mechanics of Sport and Sports Supervision & Management this year. I am a confident user of Microsoft Office and have worked extensively with Fitness Line, a program for analysing fitness.

As you can see from my CV, I've taken the opportunity to gain extra qualifications that were on offer at college, which has helped me get part-time work as a pool attendant. I'm called on to provide cover during busy times so am used to working irregular hours at short notice. I've also run a lunchtime aerobics class at college since the start of this year.

I finish college in six weeks and am keen to find a job rather than carry on with further full-time study. I could start any part time work or training sooner as many of my classes are finishing and most of my assignments are done. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Joanne Titmus
