The General Manager,
This has a reference to your advertisement, published in the Times of today regarding your need to recruit a Foreman (furnace). I take this opportunity to offer myself as a candidate for this post.
As regards my qualifications, I wish to state that I did my BSc with Physics in 20____. Thereafter, I obtained a diploma in Steel-Wire Technology.
At present I have been working as a Foreman with Firm for the last two years. My employers are fully satisfied with my work. Here I am engaged in the work of coating of steel wires and I am fully conversant with the latest techniques involved in this job.
I am a young man of 23 years, having a robust health and a good moral character.
I hope you will be kind enough to grant me this opportunity to serve you. In that case I will do my utmost to satisfy you with my work and conduct.
I am enclosing herewith copies of my certificates and testimonials for your ready reference.
Thanking you in anticipation.
