With reference to your Advertisement published in the Dawn News, Lahore for the post of a Clerk, I beg to offer my services for the same.
As regards my qualifications and experience I beg to lay down that I am a Graduate of the Punjab University. I passed my B.A. Examination in 19.. I was placed in the second class. However in my matriculation examination I got more than 60% marks and repeated this performance in the intermediate examination. I could not prosecute further studies because of the penury-stricken condition of my parents.
I learnt type-writing and can type at an average speed of 45 words per minute.
I have been working with Messrs ABX, XYZ street Lahore since 19… and now have been rendered surplus due to the closure of the firm am out of employment. I worked there as a typist-clerk.
I am a young man of 26 years of age having an excellent physique and a sound moral character.
I assure you sir, that if a chance of service is given to me, I will spare no pains in the satisfactory discharge of my obligations.
Hoping to be favored with a favourable response.
