An English student wants to get a summer job working
for the magazine "Would You Believe It?"
For questions 1-13,
complete the formal letter to the editor of the magazine,
using the advice given in the informal letter from a friend
who is a journalist for the same magazine.
Use no more than two words for each gap.
The words you need do not occur in the notes.
LETTER FROM A FRIEND
This is just to let you know what I've found out about
possible summer jobs here at the magazine.
Firstly, you ought to write a letter to the Editor (Susan Renshaw)
explaining that you are looking
for work over the university holiday period.
It's probably a good idea to mention my name and mention that I said you should write to her.
Tell her about your university course and also that you do the sports bit for the student newspaper.
Do explain that you're really interested in getting into this area after university
and that this would give you a great chance to learn.
Emphasise you can work almost any hours they want and that you don't mind doing any kind of job.
Make sure you tell her how to get hold of you and suggest she gets in touch if there is anything else she needs to know.
Really hope this helps and that it all works out!
