Dear Mr Murphy,

I am writing to apply for the position of a secretary which I say advertised in "New York Times". I am a good candidate for this position because I have a considerable experience in this profession.

For the past five years I have been employed in a large insurance agency. I enclose my references. I am looking for a job because I have got married recently and I am moving to London.

I have a university degree. I studied management. Furthemore, I graduated from a course for secretaries. I enclose my certificate from the secretaries agency. I am interested in traveling, so I can communicate with people of different nationalities. What is more, I am trustworthy and down-to-eartg.

I enclose my CV and I would be glad to attend on interview at any time convenient to you.

Yours sincerely,

XYZ.
