Band 8 IELTS essay sample

Dear Sir,

I am writing to express my interest in applying for the job of waitress which I saw advertised in the newspaper last Sunday.

I have been working as a senior barista at Tim Hortons for six months and I immensely enjoy my work. However, this restaurant is a long way away from my home and my daily commute takes over 2 hours. Your restaurant is close to my place and that is the main reason I am applying for this job. Also, I have a special liking for your restaurant because it serves the best sushi in town.

I think I have all the required skills for this job. First of all, I am good at interacting with people. In addition to that, I have a degree in hospitality industry which is the prime requirement of this position.

Should you be interested in my application, I can visit your office for an interview. I am taking a day off from my work on Tuesday as I have a  doctor’s appointments at 10 in the morning and I will be free after 11.30. Please let me know of a suitable time for the interview and what documents I need to bring along.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Aditi Gupta
