    Dear Sir/ Madam,

    I read your job posting for a Communications work with interest

    I grew up on a farm and have never wanted to anything but work in this capacity all my life. When I saw your advertisement for an open position of a Farm Worker at Company Farms, I could not believe my luck! As an enthusiastic individual with a keen interest in working with nature, I would like to join your Company Farms so as to put my best efforts for your success.

    I possess the knowledge of working in an environment conducive to crop cultivation and animal fostering. Since I have had quite some experience working on farms, I am comfortable with practical farm operations such as plowing, planting, irrigating, fertilizing and harvesting crops. Additionally, my love for farm ensures that I ensure their living quarters are clean and that they are fed properly

    This opportunity will be a great one if I am to be offered this job as I believe that only a true nature lover can work effectively on a farm. I will call you at the end of the week to ask for an interview so we can discuss this further and will be available at (+521) 7221628296if you need to contact me.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.
