Dear Sir / Madam,
I am a Dutch national from Amsterdam and at present, I am studying for a Master’s degree in Information Technology here, at the Vrije University, where I have been for the last three months. I am looking for a part-time job and I wonder if you can help me.
Probably, I would like an office job, perhaps working as a secretary, office administrator or typist. I can only work during the afternoons and at weekends as my university studies occupy most of the day. I would be ready to start immediately. As you can see from Curriculum Vitae, I have a degree in IT from the University of Amsterdam.
I am a competent typist and I am computer-literate. In addition, I speak Dutch and German fluently and I have been learning English for the past three years. While I studied for my degree, I worked as a part-time office manager for an import-export firm in Amsterdam. In recent years, I have also had temporary summer job as a hotel receptionist in Brussels, Belgium.
I am looking forward to hearing from you,
