50 Sample Letter of Inquiry Formats and Templates With Examples

A letter of inquiry is a letter written to inquire about something you are interested in learning more about. Not everyone knows everything, and there are times when we need to learn about things we do not know or would like to learn about. A professional way to do this is to write letters of inquiry.

When writing an inquiry letter, you must follow the format of a formal letter, which means you must begin with the sender’s address and then the date on which the letter is being written, as with all formal letters. The recipient’s address follows, followed by the subject, which states the letter’s purpose. After that, you write the salutation and the body of the letter, which explains what you want to know. You can finish the letter with a complimentary closing, your signature, and your name.

Subject: Job inquiry for the position of Sales Representative

Dear Sir

I am writing to see if you have any openings in your boutique for a sales representative. I was told by a friend that you advertised this position in the local newspaper last month, so I am checking to see if it’s still available. I am a recent marketing graduate from Ambrose Ali University in Ekpoma, and I have maintained an excellent academic record. My qualifications will undoubtedly be a good fit for the sales representative position, and you can count on my commitment to quality work.

I am very optimistic about a positive outcome in this case. If your response is positive, I would be grateful if you could include the application process that I will need to complete. I eagerly anticipate hearing from you via phone or email for an interview or further discussion.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to working with your prestigious firm.

Sincerely Yours,

Dear Sir,

I am writing to resolve a minor disagreement among my employees.  ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­On the departure of Mr. ­­­­James Brown, last month as the Technology Lead,  I have received no formal letter to state who will take over his duties.

I am aware that more than one member of my current team applied for the position, and Mr. Charles Oko has informed me that he has been receiving orders from head office, including from yourself, to fill Mr. James Brown’s position. However, he has no written proof of this, and I find it strange that you would award him a promotion when he is so new to the company.

Please confirm with me the actual work status of Mr. Charles Oko, as well as the name of the person who will be taking over from Mr. James Brown, if it is not Mr. Charles Oko himself.

Yours Faithfully,

Subject: Business Enquiry for Bulk Purchase of Fabrics

Dear Sir,

I am writing on behalf of Sewtofit Clothing Company to express our desire to purchase fabric materials in quantity. I stumbled across your store and had a discussion with your supply manager about it.

I own a business that specializes in custom apparel, and I am looking for materials ideal for senators, Italian suits, and plain shirts. I am looking for fabrics made of linen, cotton, silk cotton, jute, brasso silk, and chiffon. If you could send me the colours and patterns available in these categories, as well as the pricing information for each, that would be extremely helpful. I’d also like to know if you can make any changes to the colours and patterns for me.

After I check over the various patterns and colours you have, I will let you know which ones you may provide me samples for. I will meet with you in person to finalize the pricing and determine the number of various fabrics I will require. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Professor Chanq,

My name is Chioma Davies, and I am from Nigeria. I would want to know whether you have a PhD post available in your laboratory.

I graduated from the University of California with a Master of Engineering degree in Electronic Engineering with a CGPA of 5.0 out of 5.0.

After discovering several gaps in your essay on a study of state-of-the-art human-interaction systems, I am even more encouraged to do research at your laboratory.

If you offer me the opportunity to speak with you about my study topic, I will be grateful.

My curriculum vitae, statement of purpose, and research proposal are all provided.

I eagerly anticipate speaking with you.
