- describe your feeling
- invite your friend to come.
It has been a while since I spoke to you. I’m writing this letter to inform you that I’ve moved to
Brussels to pursue my career as a Senior Consultant in Java at ABC Company. It is one of the
prestigious companies here, and I consider myself lucky to have been selected here.
Life is great in Brussels. It has a tremendous maritime temperate climate with summers being
warm and winters being cool. Due to its proximity to the Atlantic ocean, it has an almost pleasant weather throughout the year. There is not much snowfall, though. Nearly 70% of the population in Brussels have foreign origins. If circumstances are favorable, I’m planning to stay here at least for the next ten years.
I know you have a strong background in Java, and Brussels has plenty of opportunities for it. I
can arrange for an interview at ABC company itself. Please do send me your Resume. Even
otherwise, feel free to come here for a holiday. Brussels is such an artistic place.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
