There are two issues I need suggetions and advices:
a) I received a telephone call and e mail from a company asking me to fill a application form regarding Job offer. I need to fill four professional references other than friends and relatives. I have to furnish Name, address, e mail ID, Designation and the Relationship of the references. In the relationship column, what should i write. Some of the references are ex-colleagues. I consulted with one of my friends working as HR manager in International Bank. He adviced me not to use the word Ex-Colleague in Relationship column. Kindly advice.
b) Kindly correct this sentences
Thanks for communicating with me regarding job offer. I would like to propose that I will try to shortern the notice period and make available during first week of Sep'08.
Once again, thank you for showing interest and contacting me.
b) I'm slightly confused. You say you've been asked to fill in an application form regarding a job offer. An application form usually precedes the job offer. Normally you fill in the application form, then if they like the sound of you they'll ask you to interview, and then finally they might offer you the job.
But, assuming you really have been offered the job, and it's not an "application form" in the usual sense, here are some suggestions:
Once again, thank you for

It is true. My friend working as HR Manager advised me not to mention any name of your previous colleagues or ex-boss or ex-suppervisors. The company is contacted telephonic interview (called from overseas) and they now wants to go further steps. They have internal system to fill a application form before I proceed further. Therefore, I need to fill a application form to complete formalities. I struck when I fill relationship column, I need to fill four professional references, out of which two are ex-supervisors(boss). I cant use the word friend, ex-supervisor, relative. Then what should be the right word. Kindly advice.
Once again, thank you for correcting sentences.
I have already sent an e mail to friend asking for clarification. He must have some reasons to say. I will get back to you once I receive reply from him.
I received e mail from my friend. There is a miscommunication between us. When I was asking the reference related questions over Internet chat he said dont use word "friends". In the e mail he replied saying that dont use the word friend for Co-worker, ex-supervisor. There is a communication gap what you said and what i understood. Sorry for distrubing you all. Thanks.
People are waiting to help.
