Dear Sir or Madam,


Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Andy Roberts, and I am currently involved in selling car insurance to the big car rental companies in my country. The reason why I am writing this letter is to explore a job opportunity for my elder brother who thinks very highly, just as much as I do, of your company.

Now, to tell a little more about the job preference of my elder brother, even though he would be more than happy to work in any position, from an entry-level to the mid, at your company, he would particularly be interested to hold the position of a Product Manager.

My elder brother has already worked in this type of position rather successfully for over 5 years, creating product specifications and eventually developing new products, while working for one of the largest and coolest children’s wear brands in our country. Besides, he also has a new product development professional certification, along with a Master’s degree in Business Management.

So, based on these qualifications, both professional and educational, I think that my elder brother would be able to render a great service to your company.

Yours faithfully,

Andy Roberts
