A Letter to Companies Interested in Hiring a Professional

Dearest Sir/Madam,

     I am Virgilio Jose B. "jb" Cabanlet of Cagayan de Oro City Philippines. I am a Licensed Realtor, and I am ready to move on to a higher level of playing field to further enhance my abilities and hopefully reach my potential whilst providing for my priority of giving a quality of life for my family in New Zealand. I have fully read your job placement ad for aspiring Junior Real Estate Agent who want to find their way in to the New Zealand Market. I am already 100% committed to moving to New Zealand this Year. The primary reason is to provide the best quality of life for my 1 year old son Zion and also for my lovely wife. We believe that New Zealand provides the perfect opportunity for a young family like us. If you will ask me when will I be ready? My reply would be, Sir/Ma'am, I can jump on a plane tomorrow for New Zealand and work for you right away .But of course this is not the case, there would still be paper work for me to become a legal worker with the proper work Visa required.

     Just to make an emphasis on our commitment, I, together with my family are already ready to work for you and give my 110% to work for your esteemed company. I certainly believe that with your company's current position, I would be able to contribute as much as I possibly can to further propel your company to greater heights. I certainly sound desperate, but as a father, providing the best quality of life for my family is top priority, and we are already committed to New Zealand within this year.

     I have already taken my IELTS Academic Exam last April 2, 2016 and attached is a scanned copy of the result of that exam, once I get my hands on it. The IELTS Exam results is high enough for me to be classified as Band 7. In all sincerity I have attached all necessary documents to show for my achievements and current work disposition. If you need more, feel free to ask and I will readily provide.

     I certainly do believe that with the amount of skill and experience that I have garnered through these years that I would be able to provide a positive impact to your company in the very near future.

Looking forward to hearing from you kind Sir/Madam.
