General Training Writing Task 1 Sample 52 - You were supposed to go on an interview in a few weeks

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You were supposed to go on an interview in a few weeks, but you have since found out you cannot go on the date arranged.

Write a letter to the potential employer. In your letter

  • Tell them why you need to move the interview time
  • Ask to change the interview date
  • Explain that you are still interested in being interviewed for the job

You should write at least 150 words.

Sample Answer 1:

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am writing to apologise as I will not be able to present myself for the interview which is scheduled in the next week.

I have found myself in this unavoidable situation for a reason. My immediate boss is out of town for the rest of this week and the following next week as well. Thus I have been made responsible for handling our overseas clients who are due to visit us this week. They are scheduled to leave not earlier than the next weekend. Therefore I will be unable to attend the interview.

I would request you to please postpone the interview date to a later date preferably after two weeks, if feasible. This would allow me enough time to complete my tasks and be available for the interview. I aspire to be working with professionals like you in your esteemed organisation. I look forward to getting a favourable reply from you soon.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Yours faithfully,

[Written by Jessica]
