  • tell your friend about the job and what sort of work it involves

  • explain how to apply for the job

Dear ......................,


Model Answer:

Dear Julian,

I'm so glad to hear from you after such a long period of time since we both graduated from university. From your letter, it sounds like you've been quite busy travelling to some parts of Europe and doing a couple of part-time jobs. Your interest to find a job in Japan is exciting news to me as it would allow us to meet in person whenever we want.

Well, you'd be glad to know that right after receiving your request, I had started to look for an opportunity for you, and I surprisingly found out that there just might be an opportunity for you at a company in my country which is trying to hire some international marketing consultants from abroad, especially, Europe to promote its product in Europe. And given that you have a degree in Marketing Management and excellent communication skills in English, I think that this job would suit you perfectly.  

So, please just visit the website of this company called “Mizomi Appliances” and follow the instruction on its “career” page in order to apply for this job.

Best of luck, and I look forward to meeting you soon.

Warm wishes,

Dear Mark,

I hope you are doing good. I'm writing this letter to let you know that I've found a suitable job as a software engineer for you in my current organisation and it involves coding in the most popular programming language- Java. Let me explain more about this wonderful opportunity which is currently available.

Firstly, this position is for a software development enthusiast who has a computer science background, and this is exactly the requirement that matches your studies and passion. It involves writing codes and developing applications in Java which I believe suites you really well as you already have great skills in the Java programming language.

I request you to go through the job description and its responsibilitie s from the online portal of our organisation which is www.dreamcraftdeve.net/ job/opening/ where you have to enrol yourself and fill in all the details and upload your earlier project related works too.

All the very best, take care.

Warm regards,
