Because I believe that my sales background fits me for the position you advertised in Thursday's newspaper, I ask that you consider my qualification.
I was graduated from Beijing Commercial College in July 1993. My experience has included two year as salesman in the Men's Clo- thing Department for DangDai; and three years in the Men's Shop for ShiDu, where I am still employed.
My reason for wishing to make a change at this time is that there seems no opportunity for advancement in my present position, and I feel that my ability and training, as well as my interest in my work, should lead to advancement and a higher salary.
I am happy to refer you upon your request people who can tell you of my work and my character.
一九八八年七月，我毕业于北京大学中文系。毕业后在《 中东国际》杂志担任副编辑工作，主要任务是负责校对、改写 以及撰写长篇、短篇文章。 到目前为止，本人已有十年工作经验，且熟悉一切办公室例行工作。
In reply to your advertisement in the newspaper of July 23, I wish to say that I am seeking the kind of position you offer.
I hold a degree in Chinese literature from Beijing University in July 1988. After graduating I worked as assistant editor in Middle East International, where my duties consisted chiefly of reading proof and rewriting, as well as composing lengthy articles and short item. I have had ten years of experience and am familiar with all phases of office routine by now.
Enclosed you will find a copy of my resume and my photo. I believe they may be found satisfactory.
Concerning my character I am permitted to refer to Mr. Smith, Managing editor of the magazine.
