Dear Madame or Sir, I am writing in hopes of being considered for a full time position within your establishment. I am available immediately for employment throughout the summer, and can accommodate a somewhat flexible schedule during weekdays. I am in my third year of study at the U of A in the Faculty of Education, studying Secondary Education. My major is in Human Ecology with a minor in Native Education; my specialty is in fashion and sewing, and I hope to become a high-school fashion studies teacher. I am extremely personable with people of all ages, ethnicities, and abilities and enjoy meeting new people and being of service. I would love the opportunity to work in a position that utilizes my skills and abilities to their fullest, and also enjoy working in a positive environment such as the one your organization maintains. I look forward to the chance to speak with you in person about how my skills will meet the needs of any current job openings you may have. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely,

Erin Tomkins
