Model Answer: [Band 9 Sample Answer]

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Jamie Ferguson, and I am writing this letter to enquire about the status of my job application and interview. 

I applied for the position of Management Trainee at your company, and my interview took place on 14th March. Unfortunately, I have not got any decision yet from your end, even though I was told that the human resource department would inform me about a hiring decision on me within one week of the interview. 

I am contacting you also because I thought that I did excellent in the interview. After all, four people quizzed me for almost 30 minutes, and yet, I never stumbled for once. At the end of my interview, they even told me that they were very impressed with my performance. 

I need to know the result of this interview because I will have to decide on whether or not to renew my apartment lease within the next week or move to another area. If I am selected for the job, I will renew the rental lease.

So, I hope that you understand the urgency of my situation and be kind enough to let me know about a hiring decision on me at your earliest convenience. 

Yours faithfully,

Jamie Ferguson
