IELTS Letter - Job Advice

by Gustavo
(rio de janeiro, Brazil)

You recently received a letter from a friend asking for advice about whether to go to college or to try to get a job. You think he/she should get a job.

Write a letter to this friend. In your letter.

- say why he/she would not enjoy going to college
- explain why getting a job is a good idea for him/her
- suggest types of job that would be suitable for him/her

Dear Brian,

Hope everything is going well. To begin with, I'll let you know why to get a job and avoid a bad career choice, by going to college, is the right option.

Clearly you will not be happy in a graduation course. First, you are a creative person with interesting ideas that could make you financially succeed. A college would only hold you back, making you lose a considerable time of your life in something that for sure would not full fill your needs.

Instead, I recommend you start to work as soon as possible. A job benefits you with the real world experience, allowing you to assess the variety type of business and to increase your wealth sooner.

To summarize, I strongly suggest you to look for opportunities to work in advertising, insurance or promoting companies. They are highly suitable for your skills, since you are very talk-active and a spontaneous guy.

I wish you all the best.

IELTS Letter - Applying for a Job as a Waiter

by Neeraj Mehra
(New Delhi, India)

You want to apply for the following job. Write a letter to Mr Jones describing your previous experience and explaining why you would be suitable for the job.

Waiter / waitress required for evening work. Some experience would be necessary.

Dear Mr. Jones,

This is in reference to the job of waiter, for evening work, as advertised in the ‘ job hunt’ column of the local tabloid by your hotel, the XAW.

In this context, I’d like to forward my resume for your kind perusal. Further I’d also be pleased to inform you that I do possess the requisite experience in the field of hospitality industry. I’ve been serving the UVW chain of hotels since the past half a decade, in the capacity of a Waiter. I further feel a pride of sense in informing you that I’ve been awarded the best employee of the year award, for my department, consecutively for three years prior to the previous year.

However, since my spouse is on the family way and lives in the city where your hotel requires waiters, albeit for evening works, I am calling it a day from the UVW chain of hotels.

Sir, by the virtue of this letter, I’d like to apply for the required post in your hotel. As regards my experience and referrals from UVW chain of hotels, I would be rather more than glad to provide you the documents.

Furthermore, I sincerely look forward to a long term relationship nurturing amongst us.

With regards
