In reply to your advertisement in the newspaper of July 23, I wish to say that I am seeking the kind of position you offer.
I hold a degree in Chinese literature from Beijing University in July 1988. After graduating I worked as assistant editor in Middle East International, where my duties consisted chiefly of reading proof and rewriting, as well as composing lengthy articles and short item. I have had ten years of experience and am familiar with all phases of office routine by now.
Enclosed you will find a copy of my resume and my photo. I believe they may be found satisfactory.
Concerning my character I am permitted to refer to Mr. Smith, Managing editor of the mag- azine.
一九八八年七月，我毕业于北京大学中文系。毕业后在《 中东国际》杂志担任副编辑工作，主要任务是负责校对、改写 以及撰写长篇、短篇文章。 到目前为止，本人已有十年工作经验，且熟悉一切办公室例行工作。
