Dear John,


It has been some time since we last spoke and I thought now was an appropriate moment to contact you.

As you may be aware, my company was recently taken over and this has led to the inevitable restructuring process. To put it bluntly, people are being made redundant and I have fallen into that category.

Knowing of your experience in the business world, I would be grateful if we could meet up and I could pick your brains. I would be particularly grateful for your comments on my CV which I enclose with this letter. Your point of view is highly solicited.

Hope you, Linda and the kids are well. Mine as usual are driving me up the wall. Convey my love to them.

I'll give you a call sometime in the next week thanks for your time.

Kind regards.


Yours Lovingly,



Colin




Comments : Good Resume Sample

The letter is informally laid out, keeping the personal touch and could equally well have been hand-written if Colin had felt more comfortable with that.

Colin gets quickly to the point of his letter, rather than slipping it in at the end.

His situation is mentioned briefly without going into too much detail.

The emphasis is on picking your brains rather than on asking for a job.

Colin encloses his CV which gives John an opportunity to study it rather than looking at it cold when they meet.

The ending is friendly and personal.

Colin will take the initiative to call sometime rather than putting pressure on John to make the first move.

Overall impression

Colin's letter is brief, friendly and to the point. His informal approach and use of language is unlikely to make John feel threatened, but neither is he left with any doubt about Colin's predicament. This loetter will possibly make an impact and will get the expected result.
