    Hi, I'm new here so sorry if this is in the wrong section. I'm 14 and finally finished my Junior Cert (which I think is the same as the GCSE) and next year I'll be doing my work experience. I'm in the middle of writing my work experience letter and I was just wondering if someone could "correct" it?

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I wish to apply for a work experience placement in your coroner's court from Monday 21st of January to Friday 8th of February 2013.

    I am a third year student in [My school]. During the academic year 2012/2013 I will be participating in the Transition Year Programme. One aspect of this programme is a three week work experience placement.

    * I am particularly interested in becoming a coroner as a future career and feel that this placement would provide me with valuable experience. I would be more than happy to undertake any tasks assigned to me. *

    If you respond favourably, a Transition Year Co-ordinator will be in contact to liase with you. A co-ordinator may also visit me while on work experience. For the duration of the placement I will be covered by the school insurance and I will be happy to send you a copy should you require it.

    Thanking you in anticipation of a favourable reply.
    Yours sincerely,

    [My name]
    1. Is my template correct (my address, their address etc.)?

    2. I'm having a bit of trouble with the third paragraph. I don't exactly know what hobbies and interests would relate to a coroner (person who inspects victims of unexplained deaths). And I'm sure as hell not going to mention I like watching CSI Miami or some cringy stuff like that. Any suggestions?
