    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I consider being likely candidate for this job. For instants, I have good communication skills; I am reliable and self-confident. First of all, I have been living in this city for 18 years and I know lots of interesting places that could be visited. In addition, I am very interested in a history of my country, so I can provide a lot of interesting and significant information about my city’s antecedent. Moreover, last years I was a tour guide for my relatives that visited my family at the summer time, thus, I managed to show them all the sightworthy places and they were pleased of my knowledge of the city.

    I hope you will consider my candidature for this job and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours sincerely,
    Ellen.

    Dear Helen,
    that is how I would apply for a job. Some of my corrections are grammar mistakes and some of them have to do with the use of English.
    Hope I have been of help.
    Good luck!
