Letter of application – by Federica Vitarelli
Dear Ms Evans,
I have read the advertisment placed by the Tourist Information Office about the post of tourist guide.
I wish to apply for the post because I think that I would be a good tourist guide.
I am an architect, and I have a passion for history and in particular way the history of architecture.
I also studied the history of my city and I love to explain it to other people.
I know my city very well in all its parts.
I think that the best way to spend free time is discovering the city and doing it with other people.
I really like meeting other people and explaining them the story of the city during the trip.
I speak English very well, and now I am studing for a Cambridge certificate.
I enclose a copy of my curriculum vitae, where you can find the details of my career to date.
I hope you will consider my application, I could do this job with passion and enthusiasm.
