Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Jatin

Sorry for taking so long to write this reply. I was too busy with my work and could find hardly a minute for myself. Anyway, now I am writing to suggest that you should definitely go for a job rather than studying further.

The first thing is that you have already finished a one year technical course at Polytechnic College of Regina. In my opinion, there is no need to do another degree or diploma. You already have a technical qualification required for finding a job. So, don’t waste any more time at college. On top of that, your classes will consume most of your time and after a few weeks, you may find yourself bored.

On the other hand, getting a job will not only provide you opportunities to do new things every day but it will also offer more money to support yourself. This simply means that you can pay off your bills and save some bucks for the future plans. What’s more, you can also learn new skills on the job.

I think you should hunt for a technical job as you already have a technical diploma. Currently, such skilled jobs are highly paid and will earn you Rs.300 – 400 per hour. I am pretty sure that it is a good time to start your professional life and to use your knowledge on the field.

If you have any doubts or questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Best of luck,

Harinder Singh
