Band 8 letter sample

Dear Prateek,

How are you doing? It has been a long time since we last spoke. I’m writing this letter to let you know that I recently switched to a new job.

As you are already know my previous work was not technically challenging and I ended up doing the repetitive tasks. Consequently, there was no improvement in my core competency and finally, this depression drove me to take the decision to quit the job.
In my current position, I’ll be writing software code for the flight control system which is regarded as the heart of the aircraft systems. It is also my strong area. I’m pretty confident that I won’t end up doing the same tasks every day at least for now.

Apart from this, I’ve some good news to share with you. I’ll be flying to Canada next month to work with my counterparts over there and I’m hoping to get very good exposure.

Keep in touch.
