Model Answer 1:
Hope you are well. I am excited to hear that you have got engaged to Michael and I am so looking forward to attending your wedding soon. Today I am writing to let you know that I have recently joined Telco Incorporation, a reputed brand promotion company, as an assistant manager at their Bristol, UK branch.
I was in the same position for the last 4 years at my former company and I was eagerly waiting for a chance to advance my career. I sometimes felt stuck with my career and that is why had to switch the job. Overall, I enjoyed my previous job except for the fact that I often had to work extra hours without any compensation.
With regards to my new job, I think this is a big career move for me as it would enhance my experience and let me work for bigger brands. This job comes with better remuneration, higher position, performance bonus and a healthier work environment. I will have to plan strategic moves for some of the clients to enhance their brand reputation and I am hoping that I will be able to earn their trust.
I had been to Italy last month with Patrick and this was a great experience. We stayed there for a week and was thrilled to explore the country and its celestial food. Patrick and I are planning to celebrate our 2nd marriage anniversary this year and would be delighted to have you with us.
Take care and write me sometimes.
