Dear Ms. Johnson

I just want to thank you for giving me a job opportunity in XYZ Company. I have been employed with XYZ Company since October2009 as a software developer. Throughout my tenure in XYZ Company, I have accomplished my duties and assignments to the best of my abilities. I have been proved myself as an honest, dedicated and continuing hard-worker for XYZ Company. In addition, I always commitment to my job and obeyed higher management all the time.

As the end of year 2010 is arriving and this is the time for our annual salary increment. So, may I now request you to consider me for an increment? As you are alert of my domestic problems due to my low salary. I hope you will give a favorable view to my application and I feel confident that the management will be kind in recognizing and rewarding my merit. I’m looking forward to a positive response from you.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
