Faulty phone product
I’m afraid that the enclosed phone product doesn’t work. It is the third one I’ve had to return this month (see attached correspondence). I bought it from ABC stores at Newtown, Big County on January 1, 2010. I was careful to follow the instructions for use, honestly. Other than the three I’ve had to return recently, I’ve always found your products to be excellent. I’d be grateful if you could send a replacement and refund my postage $299.00. I really appreciate your help.

Dear Mr Chan
Application for the Post of Management Trainee
I am writing to apply for the post of Management Trainee, which was advertised on the Student Affairs Office notice board of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University on 17 October 2013.
My working experience at Lucky Star Garment Manufactory Limited improved my leadership skills, communication skills and ability to work in a team environment. I have fluent spoken and written English. I also have fluent spoken and written Mandarin, and can therefore work in mainland China.
Currently I am studying a B.A. in Management at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, graduating in 2014. Subjects which I am studying that are relevant to the post of Management Trainee include Operations Management, Human Resources Management, Accounting, Marketing and Strategic Management.
My final year project is entitled Knowledge Management Practices in HK. Carrying out this project has improved my communication skills, my leadership skills and my ability to lead and supervise subordinates effectively. I have also learned how to run a project from the planning stage to its completion.
During my studies I have held the post of Executive in the Management Society. While leading and organising Management Society activities I have improved my ability to lead and supervise subordinates effectively, ability to work under pressure and ability to work in a team environment.
Working for Wong And Lim Consulting appeals to me because it has a good reputation and it provides excellent training. Your organisation produces a high-quality service, and I can contribute to this with my leadership skills and my ability to work under pressure.
I am available for interview at any time. I can be contacted most easily on the mobile phone number given above. I look forward to meeting you.

Subject: Quarterly Review
I’ve attached my quarterly review report to this email, but I also wanted to quickly discuss the trends I’ve noticed in our sales data over the past few months.
We’ve sold over 10,000 new memberships over the past quarter, which is a 22% increase from Q4 of last year. Our data analysis shows that this upswing corresponds with the creation of company pages on various social media sites, including Facebook and Twitter, which allows more people to connect with us virtually. In fact, over half of our new memberships were purchased from links that were posted on our Facebook and Twitter profiles.
We’ve also had an 82% renewal rate in memberships that were set to expire in Q1. This is 16% higher than our renewal rate in Q4, which suggests that our new program—having sales associates contact members directly about renewing their memberships—is working even better than we had expected.
Unfortunately, we haven’t seen the same rapid growth in the purchase of family memberships. While the number of FMs has increased by 2% over last quarter’s numbers, I believe we can get that number even higher. I’ve listed some suggestions in my report, but I would also like to add it to the agenda for our quarterly review meeting later this week.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
