Is it correct to say "opening position?"
Dear sirs, Is it correcto to say: I want to apply for the "opening position" in your company ???
Thanks in advance
Hello and welcome to the forum.
You could say:
I would like to apply for the open position in your company.
I would like to apply for the position that is open in your company.
I would say not. Usually you are applying for the opening or the position. Opening position would only make sense in the context that the position was soon to be vacated, but that is why it is called an opening.
Marianne has the answer: use open position rather than opening position, unless you wish to emphasize whether the person that held the position has already left or will soon leave.
Opening position also has a context in sports similar to "starter" or "first string".
use "position opening" plz
When I hear 'opening position' I think of an 'entry level position' or low level position.
So, if you are referring to a position that most people who work for the company started at, then I would say 'entry level position'.
And, of course, welcome to the forum.
Opening position sounds like you know someone is about to be fired or retire (which may be the case). I'd go with " I would like to apply for the vacancy with your company" or "the open position" or the "job vacancy."
