John Stevenson,

Manager of tour agency,


Dear Mr. Stevenson,

I wish to apply for the tour guide position, which was advertised in yesterday’s New York Times. I believe that I have experience and personality that an excellent physical education tour guide needs.

I graduated from Kaunas Physical Education University with a degree in Tourism. I received top grades there.

After graduating six years ago I was employed as a guide in the Museum, which is in London. I really enjoyed working thhere, but the Museum burnt and I should have left this job, and return to Lithuania. Then I found a job in one Tour agency, but the firm was closed four month ago.

As all good tour guides must be, I am very patient, organized and lively. I like contact with people and also travel. I truly love telling about interesting place and people.

At the free times I like play tennis and organize parties. Also I often go to the Theatres annd Cinemas.

I have enclosed a detail CV as well as a reference from my previous employer. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

John Smith
