Mr J. Tompkins,
Personnel Manager,
Brown's Air Systems,
P.0. Box 711,

Dear Sir,

      I would like to be considered for the position of apprentice sheet 
metal worker advertised in the 'Weekly Blah' on the 23rd January, 2016.

       I have attached my personal résumé, which outlines details of my 
education, experience and personal information.

       For the past three years I did Technics as an elective at school, and 
I found the metal work and the drawing very interesting. I became even 
more interested in sheet metal work after reading about the work and 
visiting some local factories with the school. After having two weeks 
work experience with G .B. Melon P/L (Sheet Metal Division), I am now 
sure that sheet metal work would be the job I'd like.

       I will be available to come in for an interview at any time 
convenient to you. I can be contacted at home on 661098.

                                                   Yours faithfully,


                                                      (Pat BOOTH)
