I’m writing because I saw the advert for a waiter which was in the evening newspaper on 21 October. I’m sending you a copy of my CV and I’d like you to think about giving me the job. I think I would be good at the job because I am polite and hard-working. Look at my CV and you will see that I worked in a shop last summer, so I’ve already tried serving customers and dealing with money. I’d love to work in your restaurant and I can start immediately.
I don’t mind attending an interview and I hope to hear from you soon.
See you soon,
