    See above. I don't know how this company works but, in most companies, you don't just write to the HR department and ask for an interview. You have to formally apply for the job, using their application form and a covering letter.

    I've given a couple of options above. If you haven't completed the formal application process, I doubt either of them will help.

    We have told you before about the importance of writing in full sentences. You keep starting with "Appreciate it if ...". That is not correct. You are not going to impress any companies you write to if you keep making those errors. You're also going to make us wonder why we're spending time helping you when you keep making the same mistakes, even after we've corrected them several times.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks for your feedback and suggestions.

    The point is that I used to use this form "appreciate it...". Will make sure not to use it again.

    Seriously, Economist, I despair. Look at your third sentence. Is that a full sentence?

    I forgot to put "I". I will work on that.

    I have two concerns.

    1. You seem impatient. You're not respecting or abiding by the company's process. That will work against you. Even if they hire you anyway, you'll be starting out at a disadvantage because you'll be tagged as a difficult employee.

    2. You're applying for a job that might require stronger English fluency than you have. Your English is not bad, but it's not entirely fluent yet, either. How will you deal with that when you get there? I hope we won't have to correct all your reports!

    (We had one student here who privately asked me to do that for him. I said no.)
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
