Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing this letter to apply for the position of ‘Museum Educator’ in your City Museum shop. I came across the advertisement in the newspaper. I am quite interested in this opportunity. I would like to work in the museum for the next three months during my holidays.

I am currently pursuing a three-year diploma course in Arts and History. I have just appeared for my second-year final term exams. I wish to make use of my summer vacation before the final year of my course begins.

I am quite well-versed in the historical aspects of various cultures, artifacts, and important events that have shaped our civilization. I am engaged in several art initiatives and conduct literature festivals in my college. I am also a member of the state history club. I possess good communication skills and excellent command of the local language.

I have always been fascinated by arts and history. Actually, I aspire to become a historian in the future. I am also planning to travel across the world as much as possible to learn more. This job will help me fulfill at least some of these goals by earning me an income.

Thank you for your consideration.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,

    Dear Sir,

    I am writing this letter to apply for the position of graphic designer needed in the City Museum, which was advertised in Raipur Times recently.

    I have done masters in graphic designing from NIFT, one of the leading designing colleges in India, and have been working as the head graphic designer in Ford automobiles. I specialize in making brochures, advertisements, banners and signs. The advertisement immediately caught my attention as I was always interested in History and Arts.

    My current job has no on-going projects and the situation will remain the same till the end of August. Whatever minor work i get can be done remotely. Hence, this job will give me opportunity to combine my passion with my profession and hence will boost my productivity. In addition, it will ameliorate my resume.

    Awaiting for a response.

    Yours sincerely,
    Jipsa jadwani
