Homework Help: English

Posted by Evelyn on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at 3:59pm.

Your favorite cousin has moved to your town and is looking for a job. Her previous experiences are working as a cashier and sales clerk at two department stores. You know she plans to apply at similar stores in your town. But you also know she is a perfect match for a job opening as a reliable assistant to your boss. You know she has the skills, though she doesn’t think she is as capable as she is, and you’re sure she’d be good at this job.
Your goal is to persuade your cousin to apply for the job. You e-mail her a paragraph explaining the specifics of the job and the reasons she should apply. You want to convince her that she has the job skills required. You’ll use an informal tone, of course, but will take care to use correct business writing to show her that you take your recommendation seriously.

Process
1. Using your imagination, create the kind of skills the job as boss’s assistant requires. Make up names for your boss and the company, as well as any facts that might help you prove your case to your cousin. Freewrite about the skills you’ve seen her show in other settings and about how you can convince her to use those abilities in this position. In addition, consider personality traits that show she would work well with your boss. Also make up details and figures about how this job will benefit your cousin personally and professionally.


Hey Karen,
I am very happy you are back in town. I hear that you are looking for employment here in Ocala! Guess what, with your previously work habits as a cashier and sales clerk, you would be perfect for the position within my company. My boss, Mrs. J.K. Lam, manager of Abercrombie & Fitch is looking for an assistant and I think you would fit right in. The skills required for this position are good communication skills, willingness to help, telecommunication etiquette, sales and research skills, also patience. You have exceptional interpersonal communication skills, always punctual, very dependable, and possess outstanding organizational capabilities and professionalism. The benefits are excellent too, you get medical, dental, and paid vacation. I believe you should apply for this job because you have the skills required for this position. Mrs. Lam is great to work for, she is very courteous and respectful to all her employees. She reminds me so much of you when it comes to skilled etiquette. It would be wonderful to have you on our team and benefit us both personally and professionally by helping you build a good network for future career development. It would be awesome to have you on our team. I really hope you consider applying for this position. I can’t wait to see you this weekend.

Love always,
Evelyn
