Band 8 IELTS Letter Sample

Dear Mr. Loy,

I’m writing to request an academic reference letter, to be submitted along with my application for the position of a financial consultant at May Bank. To be eligible for the job opening, candidates are required to demonstrate strong mathematical and communication skills as the position emphasises on the ability to interact with customers.

This opportunity is significant to me as it is the first step towards achieving my career goal of becoming a finance manager. At the same time, I am highly confident that I possess the qualifications needed to land the job. It would be greatly appreciated if my outstanding achievements during the ACES summer research are included in the reference letter, along with a special mention of my technical expertise with MYOB.

Many thanks in advance for your time and support.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Arianne Tan
