Band 8.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter to thank you for all the support and guidance that you  provided  me throughout my internship period at your company.

Being the head of Data Analytics department, you made sure that I was involved in various projects after undergoing necessary hands-on training. Though I spent only a short period of time, your supervision has shaped me a lot. I was able to learn how things work in real time and also the key skills required in Analytics field.

I am glad to let you know that with this experience I managed  to get into a reputed MNC as a Junior Data Scientist. Since, it is a full time job, I plan to devote all my time to become an expert in this field. I also aim to move to the next  level in another couple of years

Once again, I thank you very much for everything.

Warm Regards,
