Dear Sir / Madam,
I am writing to you in connection to get a part-time job in your company. I observed your site and saw that you are looking for a skilled software developer in your team and as far as I understood you are going to migrate your main software product to the modern tech frameworks in the near future.
I have been a software developer about six years and all this time I have used modern technology for building programs. Furthermore, software engineering and technologies, in general, are my favorite areas to learn something interesting and modern. I want to get this part-time position in your company and know that my experience and skills might be extremely useful for you in your shop migration to a new technology stack. Also, I want to mention that this process of migration will not be hard or problematic because I have taken the main role in similar actions several times.
In this way, I attached my resume to the letter.
Looking forward to your reply.

It is such great news that you already have a chance to visit my town. My wife and I are so happy that we’ll see you after such a long period of time.
I am absolutely sure that you will find this place beautiful and friendly. Furthermore, I am sure that it will be your best vacation and I have some reasons to be really confident. First of all, I already booked awesome accommodation for you on your dates. You’ll live in the best hotel in the town, on the 19th floor, with a great view of our beautiful and powerful river. Secondly, I've just finished planning the visit program, and I'm telling you that you’ll like it. It includes all the best: our historical museums, which you really appreciate, night parties and also a lot of non-trivial restaurants. Yes, and don’t forget to take your winter clothes because we have real winter weather and I don’t want you to get cold.
