Dear Animesh,

Since the day I got selected in the Ottawa University for a four-month intermediate course on journalism, there has been so much on my plate. The course seems to be very exciting and I hope there will so much more to learn from it. However, my only concern is that the course is a bit expensive.

To assist in covering the costs of my study and other expenses, I am planning to take up a part-time job. There have been few jobs that I was searching for and have given my resumes there but I am not sure if they will accept.

I was wondering if you could ask among your friends or colleagues if someone is interested in giving a respectable job to a college student. I know you have a wide social network in Ottawa which you could canvas for me.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Best wishes,
