Looking For Employment Opportunity in your Network – Letters
I appreciated the opportunity to get acquainted with you at the spring linguistics conference in Springfield. Thank you for sending me a copy of your recent paper.
Recent financial problems in our state are resulting in the board of regents’ eliminating programs they consider to be too costly. It appears that our department will be severely affected, so I am looking for another position in linguistic theory.
I have a good publication record in phonology and can teach both graduate and undergraduate classes in phonology and general linguistics. During the past five years, I have chaired seven doctoral and ten master’s committees. I believe I can make a good contribution to any linguistics program.
I am enclosing a copy of my resume for your information. If you become aware of any positions for which I may apply, I would sincerely appreciate a note, call, or e-mail message.
My name is Mike, and we met in Ajmal’ office last January. At that time you mentioned that you worked in the legal department at Springfield Associates. I am an attorney at Droid in Centerville, and am planning to make a change. Most of my legal experience is in banking and finance, but I would like to branch out into environmental law.
I graduated from Centerville University College of Law and was case notes editor of the Law Journal. I took three courses in environmental law and did my clerkship with a law firm specializing in environmental issues.
Would you mind giving me suggestions about who I could contact in Springfield? I am tied to the general area of Springfield or Centerville for the present since my wife is completing her degree in business. If you run across anything interesting, I would greatly appreciate your calling me at 555-5555.
It was a pleasure to see you at the Arts in Industry conference in Springfield last August. You may recall I was considering changing positions then. Well, as of November 1, I am a free agent. My search for a good position in graphic design is fully underway.
For the last four years, I have managed the art department at Linos here in Springfield, but that department was severely cut under the new ownership. Most of my experience has been in retail print advertising, but my degree is oriented toward events and promotions in many media, including television.
I would certainly appreciate any leads you might be able to provide me with this search. I do have the advantage of being flexible and mobile, within reason. Do not be shy about sending something my way. Please give the enclosed resume a quick look. If anything comes up, please give me a ring, at 555-5555. It will be good to talk to you again.
You were kind enough to praise my presentation on Food Safety at the Public Health Conference in Springfield last June. I particularly appreciated the suggestions you made about the overhead slides I was using.
After 6 years of working in public health education for the Springfield Health Department, I will be moving to Centerville sometime within the next few months. I would like to find a similar position in there. I particularly enjoy teaching and would like to continue working directly with the public, rather than in a laboratory.
You are so much better acquainted with Centerville than I am, and I hope you would not mind letting me know if any suitable opportunities arise. My number is 555-5555. I would be happy to send you a copy of my resume to give you a better idea of my qualifications and experience.
