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.

Yours,
Gustavo

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
MNO

I really like to get some information about that role because the role is in the range of my main interests and I have number of years of experience in acting similar roles in my past college.

When I was in the American college I was involved in organizing similar events namely badge parties, midyear parties, social get-togethers and music events. For all those events I was the main organizer and I got good support from the other students and teachers.

I think I have the required experience, interest and I also have an ability attract other students for such activities. And I need more information to get to know that my knowledge and experience perfectly suit to the role.

Thanking You

I will be able to commence my role as a branch head by 20th November. I comprehend the seriousness of the situation at work and the complications my absence will pose for you. But I assure you that I will wrap up this first project, that you have given me, within the stipulated time, by working overtime and on Sundays also. Moreover, I have the provision of working from home and can coordinate with my team through video conferencing option, in case of any impediment.

I have enclosed my medical reports along with this letter, with the hope that my request to join on 20th November in spite of 15th, will be considered. I will look forward to your response.

Yours sincerely,
