October 16, 2004

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am greatly interested by the vacancy of an assistant for sales manager you advertised on yesterday’s issue of China Daily. I am presently a student for my BA in International Economy and Trade at Shanghai University.

Last year, I was working as personal assistant for the sales manager of Shanghai Yingtai International Company as part of my fieldwork required by the degree. I started to develop my people skills in the real situation. Also I saw a great improvement in my skills of coordinating, leading and keeping aplomb in times of urgency. The experience reinforced my understanding of the importance and magic of nurturing an esprit de corps in the department. Mr. Chen, my manager at the department, acknowledged my commitment and the quickness to learn. He would be glad to tell you more about my times with him. He could be reached at 529,257,57.

In my university, I have been excellent in both my academic performance and my after-class work as the member of Students’ Union. I am fluent in both Spoken and Written English. Mr. Terry Gao, our counselor, has kindly agree to write a reference for me if it is required.

I am available for my interview every afternoon. Please contact me at 13601805658. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely yours,
Jo Gu
