Dear Jack,

How are you? I hope you are well and enjoying life. I am writing this letter to give you some good news that makes me very excited.

Do you remember that I told you that I was looking for a job? Well, after sending many resumes and doing several interviews, I finally got the job of my dreams. I will be working as a graphic designer for a famous magazine. I am so happy and proud of myself. I start next week and I can’t wait to begin. The salary is good, the hours are flexible, and the work environment is friendly. I think this is a great opportunity for me to grow professionally and personally.

I wanted to share this news with you because you are one of my best friends and you have always supported me. Thank you for being there for me and for encouraging me to pursue my goals. You are awesome.

I hope to hear from you soon and to know how you are doing. Maybe we can meet for a coffee and catch up. Let me know when you are free.

Take care and keep in touch.

Your friend,


P.S. I have attached some samples of my work for you to see. I hope you like them.
