I submitted a resume on December 15th, 2012 for the __________________________ position and would like to inquire about the recruiting process. Additionally , I want to mention my desire to change careers and believe that this position would offer an ideal opportunity to showcase my experience and eagerness to make a positive contribution to your organization and the community. Looking forward to a favorable reply.
Thanks in advance !!!!!!
[QUOTE=billmcd;955713]Looks OK to me, but one of my personal "no-no's" in correspondence is to avoid use of terms such as "I would like to" and "I want to". If you want to or would like to, say it directly as "...this is to... " (instead of "would like to") and "I have a desire (instead of "I want to mention my desire....").
billmcd- I understand the corrections, thank you very much for your time ! ag
2. Do not put a space before a comma.
3. I agree with billmcd that "I want to mention my desire" is very unnatural.
4. "Looking forward to a favourable reply" is not a full sentence.
5. In BrE, such a letter should end "Yours sincerely" (if started "Dear Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms XXX", or "Yours faithfully" (if started "Dear Sir/Madam".
In addition, although I didn't change it in your original, I would have used "the recruitment process".
