Dear _________,

Answer – 

Dear Bradd,

I’m writing to tell you that I switched my company last week and started a new chapter of my life.

The main reason I shifted to a new organisation is because I wasn’t getting the respect I deserved with regard to my experience and expertise. There was too much office politics going on and senior management was promoting bootlickers, even if they were undeserving. Also, my contribution was constantly overlooked and they weren’t even giving me the hike I deserved, let alone promotion, so I was left with no other option but to go somewhere else.

Regarding my new role, I’m over the moon to tell you that I’ve been selected by one of the Fortune 500 companies as a Chief Manager, and my package is beyond my wildest dreams. On top of that, they have flexible working hours, so now I can spend some time with my family as well.

I’ve got one more big news for you, I’ve moved into a new home 2 days ago. As the old one was a bit cramped for my family, so it was the need of the hour. Although it cost me a fortune, seeing my parents happy was worth spending every penny. I’ll be delighted if you come and stay for a few days at my new place.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Keep in touch,
