Dear Sir or Madame,
My name is Jonathan Riley and I am a 3rd year student. I am studying Biology and plan on going to graduate school after I graduate. I am writing to express my interest in the open job position at the school library. I saw the advertisement posted on the job board in the career centre.
While I was in high school, I worked as a volunteer at my local library. I helped the other librarians with checking out books, returning books to the shelves, and answering the telephones. I spent a year as a volunteer there.
I noticed that the position is part time, which would be great because I still need some time to study. I have some relevant experience and I’m a person dedicated to doing a good job. I am available at your convenience and can be reached by phone or by email.
