Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Rajesh,

I am writing this letter to offer some advice regarding the next step in your career. I personally feel getting a job is a better idea for you in your current situation. I have known you for a long time and I never saw you enjoying your classes or writing the exam. Therefore, it is better for you to find a job which will support you financially.

As / since you are the first child in your family if you get a job now, you can give financial assistance for your younger brother’s education. Now that you have completed Bachelor’s in Technology doing Masters is not very important in the current scenario, as both are being paid similar salaries.

It would be better if you applied for coding or gaming related IT jobs because you were very much interested in coding during our college days. These jobs can give you personal satisfaction and have a bright future as well.

Hope my advice is helpful for you.

Best Regards,
