Dear Mr. Smith,
I am writing to you because I am interested in an ad I have read about in yesterdays magazine about a job in your sports shop. I would like to apply for it.
I have just finished university and I have not found a job in my profession yet, so I am eager to find some full-time job. I would be able to work from 6:00 a.m. to 4:oo p.m., I am fluent in the English language, and working for 6.50 pounds an hour seems reasonable.
I ask that you consider my person for your employee. I hope to hear from you soon.
