    "a prospecting job" -- will you be panning for gold? or digging in a mine?

    I'm not sure any of the four would work.

  • Business English -

    B. A statement that you are applying for a particular advertised position.
    - my humble opinion

    'D' looks more attractive, but you don't know the reader. To catch his/her interest, you must know what his/her interests are.

    According to me the answe is D . It cannot be B because a prospecting job application letter is written when the no particular position is advertised.
