Dear friends , I am going to apply for a job in a High Commission and I am wanting to start off my application by writing: To, The Human Resources Manager, High Commission, Sub : Job application for the post of ..... Reference No ...... Dear Sir or Madam, Greetings of/for the day! From your ad..................... I am not sure if it has to be Greetings of the day or Greetings for the day. Which one is correct to use. Do both of them sound okay or one seems weird here? I guess it is of which is correct but can't see anything wrong with for either. Secondly, please be generous telling me if Subject and Reference Numbers come before Dear Sir or Madam or after ? Any other suggestions would also be appreciated. Please reply early as the last date is fast approaching and I have to post the letter by today. Many thanks in advance! Cheers, Sau, India.
