Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear Mr. Morris,

I am writing to bring to your kind attention the issues I am facing in my current job.

I was so excited about this job when I saw it advertised in the newspaper. The job description given/mentioned in the advertisement was of techno-functional profile and it perfectly matched my skills as a Market Risk Programmer. I thought working with your company will not only earn me money but also take my skills to the next level.

However, I realized that the job description is nowhere close to the original requirement. Although it has been six months since I joined, I am still working on a project that has nothing to do with my programming skills. When I took this matter up with my reporting manager, I was shocked to learn that they never had any task matching my profile.

I would like to request you to move me to some other project, where my programming and functional skills can be used. Otherwise, I am afraid I don’t have the motivation to continue in my current role. If needed, I can finish my current piece of work before moving to new project.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

I look forward to hearing a positive response.

Yours sincerely,
