    Dear Folks,

    Would it sound okay to write while applying for a job : I am very much interested in the position you have...........

    I don't know but it sounds a bit non-native English to me or may be not professional.

    I could use : I am interested in the position........., though.

    Please correct me and make me understand it better.

    What are other possible options ?

    Thanks,
    Sau

    Could I expect some other possible options too, please?

    Actually, no. :) Your first one is quite good, in my opinion, and forum rules don't allow us to create lists of alternatives. (Lists)

    hmmmm , okay :)

    So, I'd be okay with :

    I am interested in the position you have.....


    Thanks, once again.

    Actually, your first one was "I am very much interested in the position you have ..."

    But "I am interested in the position you have ..." is also fine, just not as enthusiastic. :)

    Thank you.

    Don't know why I thought second one is better and first wouldn't sound professional and normal.

    PS: Yes, obviously, I'd want to sound enthusiastic :)

    In order of descending enthusiasm (although all are just fine and appropriate for a cover letter):

    "I am very much interested in the position you have ..."
    "I am very interested in the position you have ..."
    "I am interested in the position you have ..."
