Band 8 IELTS essay sample

Dear Mr William,

I am writing this letter to express my interest in working at our company headquarters located in the United States for a short period of time.

As you are aware we have started developing the software for the Underground mining products at our offshore design centre. I would like to travel to our company headquarters and work there for a period of six months to acquire detailed knowledge about the product for which we develop software solutions. This is quite essential to build an effective software that meets customer expectations.

During my absence, I would like my colleague Mr Adam to take over my work in supporting the software team as a product owner. I have already discussed the travel plans with him and made him aware of the responsibilities of the role, so we can continue with the software development during my absence. Finally, I would need your support to get the approvals for the travel plan which I feel would really help us to get the product developed with a 100% success rate.

I look forward to a positive reply from you.

Yours Sincerely,

    Dear Mr. Vats,
    I am writing this letter to express my interest in working at our Company’s Head office, situated in The US, for six months.

    As you know, our company is working on a new project of applying internal controls drive to different departments of Head Office and I am given the responsibility of making the control structures. Making the control mechanism sitting at the remote location will result in an inefficient draft. So, I want to work closely with the Head office’s various departments to know their exact working style which assist me in making a good control system. I will also be able then to take the direct help from the staff working in main office.

    I would also like to add that during my absence Mr. Shah can take over my work as currently he is working with me in correlation. So, he knows the responsibility of this role quite well. I am also assuring that I will be available online as per the requirement to support him. Finally, I would need you support for taking approvals for the travel plan as I feel it is important for the successful completion of the project.

    I am looking forward to your positive response.

    Yours sincerely,
    Adam Smith.

    Dear Mr. Bright,
    I am the manager of human resources for the “sunshine company Ltd.”. Lately, we held a vital meeting in the conference room with lunch included.
    I realized that workers were pleased with the equipment and the acoustics of the room beside the comfort of the sitting furniture. We have found your service to be delighted and well-organized.
    However, there are some points we found unsatisfying. For the most parts, staffs expressed their dissatisfaction with the quality of food served on meeting. Surprisingly, the quality of the special cuisine, the salmon and veggies, was below the expected standard. Also, we all found the food to be cold and unbearable which I assume was due to poor timing while serving the dishes. In terms of taste and garnishing, there were more effort needed in order to keep the score up.
    To improve the rate of satisfaction, I would like to suggest few points. Firstly, I believe waiters must be sensitive to the warmth of the foods which can only be done by acquiring experience in timing. Moreover, hotels must be extremely cautious about the freshness of goods especially for the fish and meat as they can be rotten rapidly. Daily Purchasing these items is more wisely, and brings about desirable quality.
    I hope you found my letter to be helpful. I look forward working with you in the future.

    Yours faithfully,
