Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sarah,

I hope this letter finds you in good health. I’m obliged to you for offering me the job opportunity in your company. I have known your company for decades and have heard of the great projects your company has recently completed.

However, I regret to inform you that I will not be able to join the organization at the agreed date. Currently, I am working on a three month’s project with Infotech Solutions that I want to finish to add to my portfolio before I make a switch. Also, this is a very demanding and challenging customer and as a result, I can’t put the burden of the project on the other team members since I was involved in it from the beginning.

If there is no urgency to fill this post, then I request you to consider my application for this post after 3 months. I hope you understand my situation.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Best wishes,

    Dear Sam,

    I got excited to receive the work offer from you. I have read a lot about your company and It always position itself in the list of India’s top 10 software companies every year. They offer hefty amount of salaries packages to employees and also provide free internships to workers in order to improve their personal skills.

    As you know, I am working with a company on a contract. Hence, it is impossible for me to leave this job in the middle. If I do this, I have to pay a huge amount of money to the company that could put me in a trouble since my financial condition is not strong at this moment. The contract is ending in the july of this year. So, I cannot think about any another option upto three months.

    I am really sorry about this. It would be a pleasure for me to work in your company but it is difficult for me to join your company at this stage.

    Best wishes,
    Sarbjeet Singh

    Dear xyz,
    Hope you are hale and hearty. I am very delighted to receive an offer to work in your company as a senior consultant. I am really amazed that you have raised confidence and trust on me by offering me such designation in your organization.
    I know you are operating a very renowned consultancy firm which you started 10 years back. I have heard many good things about your company and I always wanted to work in your company. However, as per the rules and regulation of my current organization I have to serve 3 months notice period before leaving this organization. Even if I want I cannot join your organization immediately.
    I know you have an urgent need of senior consultant in your company and that’s why you offered me this role first before giving to anyone else. However, giving the above predicament, I cannot able to join your organization before three months. Hence, I suggest you to look for a more desired candidate for the above position who can join immediately. This would also not hamper the productivity of your office.
    I really appreciated once again for offering me the role. Looking forward to meeting with you.

    Dear Ram,
    Hope you and your family are doing well! In response to your last letter, I wanted to convey my gratitude towards your gesture of offering an opportunity to work in your company.
    Your company is a market leader in manufacturing parking-cones. I was also interacting with one of my clients lately, and heard some really positive feedback about your company’s offerings. I must appreciate the way you have grown the business in the last 2 years.
    As you are aware, I was previously stuck at my last role for about an year, and was extremely unhappy. But, last month luckily, I was able to crack the interview at Siemens, the largest manufacturer of turbines globally, and I have just joined them 2 days ago.
    I really appreciate your intention of offering a role at your company, but for now I would have to reject that, since I have just taken a new role.
    Thanks again for the support and keep in touch.
    Best Wishes,
    Vaibhav Kathpalia

    Dear Tony,

    I hope you are in the best of health and spirits, I intend to express gratitude for the offer to join your company as Human Resource Manager. This is something that I have been looking for a long time and is like a dream come true situation for me, to join an emerging business of the fintech sector. Especially, who won’t like to work with the recipient of the youngest entrepreneur of the year award.

    As far as my self is concerned, I am presently hooked up with a Software implementation project in the largest bank of the country and looking after the affairs of the administration department. My current assignment will last for the next three month and since I have been involved with the project from the beginning, my presence in the team is vital to complete it within the stipulated deadline.

    While appreciating your generous offer to work in such a key position, I express my inability to join your group, at least for the next quarter. I hope that if you could manage to wait till my availability and you do not need to fill in the post immediately, then please allow me the leverage, or else find a suitable candidate.

    I once again appreciate the trust exhibited by you and will try to reciprocate the same in the future.

    Best wishes,

    Farhan
