    Hi muktha

    A short covering letter is a standard requirement when you send out any document. It allows you to say what you are sending the document for and to whom.

    Comments on your letter:

    - The date should be placed above the receiver

    - Addressing the letter to the Manager is fine.

    - Always have a title eg. Application for the Post of xxx

    - State what post you are applying for.

    - Have a double space after a full-stop.

    - Tell them why you are suited for the post.

    You need to use a space after punctuation.

    People read the entire word, not letter by letter. I think that's the main reason.

    Good luck.

    I introduce myself as a qualified post graduate in IT having MCA degree with a commerce back ground and looking for a JOB.
    I would prefer the sentence to be more concise like this:
    I am a graduate with an MCA degree in IT and have previous work experience in commerce.

    Do you call a person with a postgraduate degree a post graduate?
    What is an MCA degree?
