Model Answer:


Dear Sir,

I am an Indian national from Minnesota and at present, I am studying for a master's degree in computer science at the University of Minnesota, where I have been studying for the past eight months.

I am writing to request you for some help in my part-time job search. I would like to do an office job. Particularly, I prefer jobs like that of a typist, attendant, or clerk. I cannot work during the weekdays as my university studies occupy most of my time. I can work on weekends and during the evenings of weekdays. 

I am a computer literate and can type at a speed of 200 words per minute. I am fluent in Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil. I have been learning English for the past three years. Besides, while I was in college, I worked as an assistant for one of the professors. I also worked as a part-time receptionist for The Museumy, for a year during my final year. In the recent years, I have held positions of office-admin and secretary during summer. 

If you feel that my experience and my skills match your requirements, kindly contact me at or +1651-087-2345. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Jane Doe.
