Dear Ms Morton,


I saw your advertisement in yesterday's 

Evening Standard. I think I am qualified

for this job and I would like to apply.


I am currently studying at the Hotel 

School to become a receptionist. I have

passed GCSEs in 9 subjects and I speak 

Spanish and German. Last year I had a

part-time job as a recepcionist in California

Hotel. I have a reference letter from the

manager in case you should need it.


I enclose a copy of my CV and look forward 

to hearing from you.


Yours sincerely,


                                                         Benjamin Thomas
