Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter with regard to the overseas employment opportunity provided by your company to interested candidates. I came across your recruitment agency on the internet.

I am a Pega software professional having great interest in working overseas. The reason for my interest in working abroad is that there are more opportunities for software professionals in countries like the US, the UK and Germany. An overseas stint will give me the chance to broaden my horizons. It will also give me the opportunity to earn a healthy salary with which I can fulfill all my dreams.

I want to work with a company that gives me a chance to enhance my skill set and I am most interested in working at an MNC so that I can experience the corporate culture. I would like to work on the same platform where I have been working as I have 10 years of hands-on experience in it. If an opportunity is given on the same platform I can be productive from the first day itself. I am attaching my resume along with this letter.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,


Manjusha Nambiar
