Review of the IELTS Letter 1 to a friend in another country about a job

Strengths

  • The writer addresses all instructions in the task sufficiently without any deviation. Also, he or she maintains the informal tone of the letter well.
  • All points connected, and paragraphs are well segregated.
  • The author uses apt words and phrases. Also, the grammatical structures are acceptable.

Weaknesses and solutions

  • The connections between a few points could be better. For example, the second body paragraph can be improved as follows.

The company is reputed in the field and has an office in Pune, India. It is looking for someone who has five years of experience in financial security analysis and can manage a team as a Team Lead.

  • The author has lost chances of forming complex structures. For example, the first two sentences of the third paragraph can be combined to write the following. 

I feel this job is perfect for you since you have five years of experience in security analysis.

  • Also, the author needs to use more linking words to ensure coherence and cohesion. 

IELTS Letter 2 to a friend in another country about a job

Dear Tom,

I hope this letter finds you well. Yesterday I received your letter about your job search.

As you know, I am working in the physics department of Manipal university. Today I have seen an internal job vacancy for the post of assistant professor in our department. The notice says that this post involves 10 hours of theory classes and three laboratory sessions every week.

I consider you to be a suitable candidate for this vacancy. Firstly you have worked as an assistant professor for five years in Canada. Secondly, you have earned a PhD in physics, and you love teaching the subject to every one. Lastly, you have five years of postdoctoral research experience in the field.

So I would suggest you go to the Manipal university website and fill up the online application form before the end of this month.

If you need any help, let me know. I can personally talk to the head of the department. 

Warm regards

Siya
