Writing Task 1:
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
Write about the following topic:
You were supposed to go on an interview in a few weeks, but you have since found out you cannot go on the date arranged. Write a letter to the potential employer. In your letter
- Tell them why you need to move the interview time
- Ask to change the interview date
- Explain that you are still interested in being interviewed for the job
Write at least 150 words. You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing this letter to request a reschedule of my upcoming interview, which was arranged for the 20th of next month. I had previously agreed to be present on that day, but I am unable to attend due to some circumstances beyond my control.
My current employer recently notified me that I am required to arrange a conference meeting on behalf of the company, and unfortunately, it conflicts with the date we had already established for the interview. My presence at the event is mandatory since I am in charge of all preparations and will make sure everything is done on time and correctly.
In regards to the job, I am quite interested in this position because I believe it is a great opportunity to demonstrate my knowledge, skills, and expertise in the role. So, I would appreciate it if you could give me an alternate date for the interview that matches your schedule.
Finally, I apologise for this inconvenience and look forward to hearing back from you.
