E-mail Writing

Read the email carefully and check out any vocabulary you don't know. Is "sincerely" often used in American English?


Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm writing to you today to propose my services as an unpaid intern 
with your organization.

As you can see from my accompanying c.v. I have just finished a degree 
in Economics from the University of Kent. I appreciate that in the 
current job market that I am unlikely to get a paid position if I do 
not have any valid work experience.

This is why I think I could be of big help to your organization. I 
would be happy to work for you for a minimum of 6 months without any 
form of payment. All I ask from you is to give me work experience in a 
variety of areas.

I am somebody that seeks responsibility as I have shown both in the 
university and in vacation jobs that I have had. I am also an 
excellent team  player.  I think I can contribute a lot to your 

Yours sincerely (truly)
