I have been working as a salesman for a long period of time so I could understand and have a fair knowledge about the job and the clients. Besides, I also had a qualification of my business degree, I had been taking a course about business skills. For those above, I hope you can give me a chance to apply it. The only reason why I am leaving my present job is my parents both retired but they live too far from my city. Therefore, they need to be looked after by me.

I also hope that you will kind enough to consider my application. I shall be able to be called for an interview. Your prompt response would be appreciated.


Is this a writing practice exercise or a real letter?

If it's just practice, can you provide the prompt/question?

If it's a real letter, do you have a link to the job ad?
