Model Answer:


Dear Sir,

I am a 21-year-old Indian national, and at present, I am studying for master's degree in computer science at the University of Minnesota. I am writing to ask if there any part-time job vacancies at your football club.

I really love sports and my areas of particular interests are Football, Rugby, and Cricket. I have had the experience of coaching football teams over the past three years at The Night Fighters, a local football club in Minneapolis. In addition, I also worked as a team captain of the college's football club. Moreover, I have held temporary summer jobs as a football coach and sports tutor. I can provide references from my university and also from the other organisations where I worked.

I can work only on weekends and during evenings on weekdays, as my university study occupies most of the day. I am available to start from the beginning of  November. I hope to hear back from you in the near future. 

Yours faithfully,

Jane Doe.
