- For Teachers
Hi there. I wrote the formal letter for the job application. Could you check if there is no grammar or stylish mistakes? And if there are some, could you correct them, please? Thank you a lot in advance!
Dear FirstName LastName,
I am writing to apply for a position of journalist/correspondent at Your international magazine "Z". I am passionate about the article writting and would like to contribute my skills of journalism to Your practice.
To begin with my name is FirstName LastName. I am X years old high-school graduate in my homecountry Lithuania. I have been working as a journalist in the best Lithuania's business magazines for a two years. I have a wide experience in various business topics writting.
Furthermore I saw that You do not have any correspondents from Lithuania, yet. This is one of the reasons why I would be glad if I could bring You some new ideas and view from my country. Journalism is my bigest passion, which go along with me since I learnt to write :)
Eventually I would be glad if I can realise myself in an international space, writting on business and other topicalities.
I enclose my C.V. and would be grateful if I could be considered for any such position You may have.
I am looking forward to hear from you.
Thank you very much!
Also, I wanted to ask you one more thing.
What is the difference between:
"I am looking forward to hear from you" and "I look forward to hearing from you" ?
"look forward to" is always followed by -ing form.
You can say: "I am looking forward to hearing from you", as well as "I look forward to hearing from you", but NOT I am looking/look forward to hear from you.
But I wrote "I am looking forward to hear from you" in my job application in this forum. And the moderator has left it as a correct form.. So?...
It was late and I missed it.
Resta is correct.
