Dear Sir/ Madman:
Thank you for speaking with me this week; I am so glad to be renewing
aquaintences with you. I felt very much at ease during our conversation
and confidant that I could contribute to an excellent working relationship.
I have four years experience with the worlds largest publication for
Spanish-speaking men. My current roll is senor writer at the newspaper.
We were the sourtce for all decisioning about the responce of this
audience. My responsibilities included attending and organizing weekly
meetings, communicating and reporting minuets. I also organized the
annual company gala, with live music and elegant horsedevours. Among
employees, I was ranked 5 out of 5 3 years in a row at year end.
I work well independantly and also in a team envionment. I also speak
Hindi and Bengali (Indiana languages).
My position was eliminated as part of the companies down sizing efforts.
All employees are being layed off. Prior to this, I left my last position due
to "philisophilogical differences."
My salary requirements are negociable.
Weather or not you hire me for this opening, I am glad to connect with
you. I appreciate your suggestions on my resume, and will send you a
revised version. It will be proofed wth a fine toth comb. It has been
proofed already, but not as critically needed, I am sure.
