Replying to your advertisement…… Answering your advertisement…… Believing that there is an opportunity…… Thinking that there is a vacancy in your company…… Having read your ad……
1．（a）Replying to your recent advertisement in the Boston Evening Globe, I wish to apply for the position of sales manager……
（b）In applying for the position of sales manager I offer my qualifications, which I believe will meet your exacting requirements.
2．(a)I believe after reading your advertisement in this morning‘s Journal that you have just the opportunity I am looking for.
(b)your advertisement in this morning‘s Journal for an adjustment manager prompts me to offer you my qualifications for this position
3．(a) Having read your advertisement in the New York Times for an accountant, I thought you might be interested in my application.
(b)In your advertisement for an accountant, you indicated that you require the services of a competent person, with thorough training in the field of cost accounting. Please consider me an applicant for the position. Here are my reasons for believing I am qualified for this work.
1．I hesitate to state a definite salary, but, as long as you have requested me to , I should consider 6,500 a month satisfactory. 我对待遇总是迟迟无法定个确切数目，但既然您要我说明，我认为月薪六千五百元就满意了。
2． Although it is difficult for me to say what compensation I should deserve, I should consider-a month a fair initial salary. 虽然我很难说待遇应该是多少，我以为起薪每月--很合理。
3．I feel it is presumptuous of me to state what my salary should be. My first consideration is to satisfy you completely. However, while I am serving my apprenticeship, I should consider-a month satisfactory compensation. 余不敢冒昧说出起薪多少。最初余仅想要如何工作得好，使您满意。在学徒（试用）期间，月薪--即可。
1． As for salary, I do not know what to say. Would$4,500 a month be too much? 至于起薪，我不知怎么说，月薪四千五百元会不会太多？
2． Do you think I should be asking too much if I said 5000 dollars a month? 若要求月薪五千元，会不会太高？
3． You know what my services are worth better than I do . All I want is a living wage. 对敝人工作的价值您比我更清楚。我仅想够糊口即可。
