Re: work placement
For my diploma to become a personal Assistant, it is essential to have work experience in an English firm.
I am hoping to work for an international firm and would be particulary pleased to have some training in your firm which keeps developing.
I am following a two-year course to become a personal Assistant at Lycée ........ in Paris. A
six-week experience period is a compulsary part of my course, and the report which I will
write about my placement in your company will be presented orally for the examination.
Moreover, a placement in your firm would enable me to perfect my English.
I would be very grateful if you would agree to give me a placement in your firm from 21 May to 29 June 2002.
Work experience in English firm would enable me to gain the knowledge of international business practise which I need.
