Writing Sentences and parahgraphs
posted by Crystal .
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.

Subject: Job Offer
Last time we spoke you were talking about putting your application in at some local convenience stores in the area. I thought I would tell you about a job opening here where I work. My boss Mr. Smith is looking for an individual who is responsible, punctual, and loyal. You have demonstrated these characteristics by always having a accurately counted register, and only missing one day of work in four years. You work with numbers so frequently that you can calculate figures in your head. This skill will be especially helpful when my boss ask you to tabulate hours for the employees current work week and also current income figures. You are extremely smart and have great communication skills , also you know how to be authoritative but tactful. I think you and my boss would work great together, as both of your personalities and strong work ethics complement each other. Amber your not afraid to ask questions or step out of the box; and you can do it in a logical and efficient manner. I think you can learn a lot from my boss, and this experience will move your career in the right direction.
