    Do I need to write the full web-address?

    Hi,

    Could you please answer my 2 questions?

    Q1:If I want to mention where I saw the job posting, do I need to write the full address of the website in my cover letter?
    Q2:Which proposition I should use?


    Sentence1:
    In response to your job posting of the graduate trainee from/in/for/at/on the ww.prospects.ac.uk, I have attached my resume.
    Sentence2:
    In response to your job posting of the graduate trainee from/in/for/at/on the prospects.ac.uk, I have attached my resume.
    Sentence3:
    In response to your job posting of the graduate trainee from/in/for/at/on the prospects, I have attached my resume.

    Thanks

    Re: Do I need to write the full web-address?

    I would say no you don't need the full web address, but I would say 'the Prospects website'. The proposition would be 'on'. Also, I'd change the first part 'of the graduate trainee' to 'for a graduate trainee', thus:

    "In response to your job posting for a graduate trainee on the Prospects website, I have attached my resume."

    Perhaps the job description includes a Reference Number? It will be clear if it does, something like "Ref. No. -". If it does, include that both in this part, and also in the subject box of the email. It means a lot more to the employer than 'posting for a graduate trainee', so something like:

    "In response to your job posting (Reference Number XXXXX) for a graduate..."

    Thank you for your reply.

    "Prospects website"

    Do I need to say "Prospects's website"?

    No, because it isn't the website belonging to 'Prospects', it is one thing. If Prospects was a company who had a website, then you might say it as the possessive, but Prospects is only a website.
