    Dear Mike,

    Hope you had a great start to the year.

    This is in regards to my interest in working from our head office in New York. Having been a part of Corpdoc, it has been my constant endeavour to work at the best of my abilities , irrespective of the environment that I come across. Like everyone else, I have spent the last couple of years working remotely due to the pandemic, which has made my daily routine severely monotonous. Moreover, since most of our team is based out of our head office, I see this as an opportunity to bond with peers and enhance my skills. I have already been a part of student exchange programs during my university days and throughly believe that embracing a new work culture is imperative in the overall growth of a professional.

    It is my humble request that you grant me this opportunity ,to work from our headquarters for a period of 6 months. I can assure you that my productivity at work would remain paramount ,during this transitional and learning experience.

    Looking forward your response.

    Best regards,

    Kartik

      This is a semi-formal letter, use opening and closing accordingly.

      Use distinct paragraphs to answer each bullet point. And extend ideas around them.

      Paragraphing is important , it truly impacts the band score.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    This is to inform you that I am keen on spending the next six months in our head office. I honestly feel that this would provide me exposure and an opportunity to upskill myself. Furthermore, this would also provide me with the opportunity to communicate with our head office employees in person which can further bolster our ties with them.

    While I am away, my tasks and responsibilities would be handled by my colleague, John. He pitched in to help me as hasn’t had any project to work on for quite some time and was looking to add tasks in his bucket list. Needless to mention that he is as talented individual who knows how to manage work and deliver before deadlines.

    This is my first time visiting head office so I am not sure whom I should contact in the company and how to book tickets through our company’s portal, so I request you to kindly help me out in arranging it.

    Thanking you!

    Yours Sincerely,

    Ankit Malhotra

      I would request to please send me ( I am keen to spend next six months…)- “send” is not appropriate here

      The work does not gets ( will not get)

      Sentence structure is monotonous at times , try to add sentence range.

      Keep writing!!
