    in or the , or your

    Hi,

    Question:
    Which sentence is grammatically correct in a job application cover letter?

    Sentences:
    1) I will arrange the earliest possible travel once I receive an invitation for an interview.

    2) I will arrange the earliest possible travel once I receive an invitation for the interview.

    3) I will arrange the earliest possible travel once I receive the invitation for an interview.

    4) I will arrange the earliest possible travel once I receive the invitation for the interview.

    5) I will arrange the earliest possible travel once I receive your invitation for an interview.

    Thanks

    [QUOTE=uktous;569137]Hi,

    Hi, I am not a teacher,

    but your sentences talk about the same subject. I reckon you're playing with the use of determiners, but the real thing is to know what is the purpose of this question. Maybe the context help us to show you the better way to answer at your speaker.

    Tell me more about the situation which you are.

    Thanks.

    My situation:


    I am now in the UK, but my home is in the US.
    I apply for a job in the US.

    If the employer interviews me, I will back to the US immediately.
    I will write the sentence above in my job application cover letter.

    Hello, (I am not a teacher),

    I believe the fifth sentences is the best. Why ? Because I think when you use 'your invitation' the person who have sent you the letter feel more implyed.

    It's just what I think.

    Have a nice day and good luck for your job.

    ***neither a teacher nor a native-speaker***

    ...travel, once...

    All seems grammatical to me, but what you mean slightly differs.

    I will arrange the earliest possible travel, onceas soon as I receive your invitation for the interview.
