Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to let you know that I am interested in the job of taking care of your offspring for six months as mentioned in the advertisement displayed in the Australian magazine named ‘Mood’. I am extremely skilled in taking care of children under the age of 10, as I have had previous experience in this area for more than 10 years now.

I am appropriate for this job profile as I not only have completed my master’s in child psychology and early parenting but also have served as a caregiver in two other households bagging an experience of over a decade. My service review has been updated on the worker’s union portal online and can be glanced for my credibility and value.

If I get selected and stay with your family, I will use my free time to sharpen my knowledge in the field of child psychology as for their growing developments and approaches.

Eagerly waiting for your response.

Yours sincerely,

Shika Bangera
