Marseille, 3 February 2000,


Application for the job of personal assistant
(Ad in "The Times Classified Week", 10-16 January 2000)


For the attention of Mr. David Taylor


Dear Mr. Taylor

I noted with interest your ad for a personal assistant published on the Internet site WWW.EXPATRIES.ORG in the week 10-16 January 2000.

Since I have just passed my HNC as a Personal Assistant French/English/Italian, I would like to find a job as a PA in a company that would offer me the possibility to practise my languages and use my secretarial skills.

As you will see from my enclosed CV, I have been performing various secretarial tasks for three years in France. These tasks have included basic secretarial work but also a more advanced type of activities such as laying out ads, organizing meetings and business trips abroad, follow up of orders.

Having worked in various fields (smart cards, canning, air transport), my experience should meet your demand. Indeed I enjoyed both the kind of work and the dynamic atmosphere that are particular to companies such as yours.

I would be grateful if you could take my application into consideration and contact me for an interview at your convenience. I would also be grateful if you could tell me about possible accommodation in your area (B&B or similar)

I thank you again for your attention and am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely

Aurélie Lambert
