Ok to aid my getting a traineeship, Im writing letters to businesses asking them directly. This is what I have so far: I just finished year 12 last year and am looking for a traineeship in IT. I saw your advertisement for a first level IT support person and thought I would enquire as to the possibility of doing a certificate IV traineeship at one of your Melbourne offices. I am a persistent and highly motivated individual. I pride myself on my punctuality, reliability and resoursefullness. I am willing, and in fact look forward to, applying myself to learning new skills. There are government-endorsed incentives involved in employing trainees.
