In today’s era, almost every information, comes on mail and there are certain things which are really important for us. So, for example, it could be the first job letter, your winning game article or for that matter anything. Let us today have a look at a cue card that talks about an important email that a person got.
Describe an important email you have received.
You should say:
- who sent it to you.
- when you got it.
- what was it about
and explain why this email was important to you.
Sample Answer One
There are so many websites that I subscribed to and there are so many mails that I get ever day but I remember, having receiving a mail about my selection for the Gartner.Inc. It was truly an amazing feeling because it meant I would be able to work with the best company providing BI services and it also meant I had proved my mark.
I can clearly recall, I was sitting on my couch with my laptop in hand and working over a new assignment that I had got and meanwhile something just struck me. I went to my mail and started scrolling the mails. The mail that I got was of the previous day and it said that I need to sign some documents and then some other formalities before I could go and start my work at Gartner.
The reason it was very important for me because I had truly worked for it, sacrificing lot of things that people of my age were doing. There were times when I felt exhausted and the other times when I just did not had anyone to talk to. On receiving the mail, I first called my parents and they were proud and I was happy. Finally, I could work on something that was creative.
Sample Answer Two
I am a travel blogger and for someone who has been into the business of blogging knows that initially it is really tough job. There are days, months when one is just giving his or her best and working on the blog, putting content and yet does not receives any money. I remember, when I started my own travel blog, it took me around six months before I started getting some decent amount of money with which I could make some other plans as well.
It was some time back and I was sitting on my couch, completely exhausted over a particular post trying to figure out something and worried about paying my bills. The landlord had come to my house sometime back asking for the rent and I had nothing to give. For the first time in years, I had really questioned my job and my decision to become an entrepreneur.
Lost in my thoughts, I opened my mail account and there was this mail from Google. Initially I thought, it must be some random mail but later on when I started reading it, it was the mail regarding the number of viewers on my site and Google has decided to finally pay me for the services that I was doing and it was a check of 70000 rupees.
In a time when I did not had money, when I could not even think of surviving, when I had started questioning my dreams and my decisions, the mail was an assurance that I was on right path and that I am meant to be successful and that the only thing that I need to take care of is my work.
An important lesson learnt and a faith reassured, it was that mail that changed my life and helped me become what I did become.
