General Training Model Answer – IELTS (Task 1)

You are applying for a job and need a letter of reference from someone who knew you when you were at school.

Write a letter to one of your old teachers asking for a reference. In your letter
Say what job you have applied for
Explain why you want this job
Suggest what information the teacher should include

Dear Mrs. Lloyd,

You may remember me as an A-student in your IT class. I am writing to ask you for a reference letter which I need for a job I am applying for. I hope to be employed in the Data Processing Department of a large multinational market research company.

This job suits my academic qualification and offers many attractive perks. I believe that this experience in a highly demanding environment will prove beneficial in the long run. The Head Office of the company is located in my area so I will not waste any time travelling to work. The manager has informed me that I will be eligible for a promotion in a year if I meet all the requirements set out by the company. What is more, I am entitled to bonuses if I finish the tasks on time.

The reference letter will determine whether I obtain the position or not. I would appreciate it if you could include a character reference, a list of my class grades and an outline of what your course involved.

Yours sincerely,
Zafor Hasan
